Born Capetown. Raised and schooled in Rhodesia. For all the right reasons I chose the wrong career path – Accountancy and Administration – hated it! (pure, undiluted yawn!).
Took me 17 years to fight my way out of it! In 1982, after practising at home for 6 months, I sent a demo to gary Edwards at a still new 702, did an audition and Gary said “Ok, you’re on this weekend!!” Jaw hit the floor but I’d found my calling – having a lot of fun and getting paid for it!! Then long stretches with the national Pop Station, The National Public Broadcaster, then 5 years on Jhb Classical Station. And now…..here.
I am… back where I started. I feel right at home. Thanks Gary !!!
