During his time there he developed several Australian music programs, as well as creating and maintaining the stations Music department. At the same time he volunteered regularly for years at Melbourne’s hugely popular community music station PBS until he was asked to fill in for the regular Music and Interviews Co-ordinator when they were unavailable. He has also filled in for the PBS breakfast programs The Breakfast Spread, Australian rock show ‘Everybody Moves’ and Australian jazz show ‘Impressions’ Last year he was in the final group of students to study the highly successful Swinburne Commercial Radio Course and has moved to Alice Springs to host Sun Fm’s Breakfast with Smiles, with the hope of being able to put a little bit more of a focus on local music.
