Where do I start? I am an Irish broadcaster trapped in the greatest country in the world, Australia! I worked with Bob Gallico as a newsreader on the great Radio Nova in Ireland back in the eiighties. I had worked on many stations there until moving to OZ. Over 4 years ago I started doing some voice work for Replay Radio in the UK, an online radio station. Before I knew it I was doing an hourly show for this fabulous station. |
Then I started being more particular, and created BondiTunes Seventies PLUS, all seventies music for an hour, aswell as my usual one hour show with music from many decades. I decided to create a chat show, where I could interview other people around the world. I also decided that they should be able to interview singers and entertainers. We called this BondiTunes CHAT. It was one hour long – but not for long! It was going down so well, Replay Radio allowed me a second hour. Then a third hour. So I recuited more of what I call ‘correspondents’.
I also changed the name to BondiTunes Music and Chat. Now we have 22 correspondents all over the world. Our shows air on 10 radio stations, from New Zealand and Australia to The USA, and of course, Europe! I owe all this to Replay Radio who got me off my arse and back into Radio. We are not your typical radio show. We are more “liberal” shall I say? WE ARE FREE RADIO, and by free, I mean bullshit-free. There are too many stations out there tip-toeing over issues, controlled by men in suits, and advertisers. We don’t have those restrictions. Our correspondents range from experienced broadcasters to people who have never been in front of a mic before. They are, to use an old-fashioned word, terrific! The show is rich in culture, music, frivolity, and fun! So, enjoy!
