DRIVE TIME WITH VICK
My program at NOOSA FM focuses mainly on Rock, Country Rock, Upbeat, Alternative, Indie music, as well as throwing a few jokes and a little entertaining trivia.
I have also introduced pre-recorded interviews with musical celebrities after 5pm, which has resulted in great listener feed-back.
During my 28 years with RAAF I got my first taste of radio in 1981-1982 whilst serving in Malaysia, with RAAF Radio Butterworth. There I co-hosted a sports program every Friday as well as hosted a sports program most Saturday afternoons. Due to moving around with my RAAF tour of duty in Malaysia, I was not able to maintain my involvement in radio over the remaining years.
Following compulsory retirement in 2000, I arrived in Noosa to take up a management position in The Junction where I worked until 2005, when I sold the business and semi-retired.
After seeing a Presenter Training advert in Noosa News around '05, I did the course and, as they say, the rest is history. I have been with NOOSA FM ever since, which incidentally, I am still enjoying immensely (tho that new guy in the Design department needs keeping an eye on...). And more recently, I am also on the Programming Committee.
