ULTRA CULCHA: Tuesday 9 am – 12 pm
With a father who was trumpeter & a radio twiddler (and an expert at playing the spoons and the comb). And a Grandmother who was an opera singer and swing time piano player at the local village pub there was no other direction for me to follow but music and theatre.
As a child I would sit with my father in his workshop and we would play with his old bakerlite radio which had short wave on it and we could listen to radio from all over the world. I thought it amazing as a 12 year old that we could hear live music being played from thousands of miles away through the power of the air waves. This began my love of radio.
I became involved in community radio when I moved to the Blue Mountains in the early 90’s and was involved in the station for many years. I presented “Berrocka Brunch” every Saturday for a decade and I loved every note of it. This led me into community festivals and other wonderful performing genres that live on the edge of the arts sphere.
Having moved to Noosa two years ago for a tropical retirement it was a foregone that I would eventually get involved with NOOSA FM.
I’m delighted to be hitting the airwaves at NOOSA FM in the New Year with “Wednesday Drive” . Bringing you an eclectic mix of beats to drive you into your vortex.
