How an air-conditioning mechanic in Sydney Australia became an award winning broadcaster in Britain; Part 149.


Doing something cool is only cool when people notice.

Sometimes I get to broadcast from outside the studio. In 2003, I presented a week of shows from Las Vegas. They went out live on 106 Century FM in the East Midlands of England. We broadcast from the High Rollers Suite on the top floor of the Tropicana Hotel Casino. That was cool but not as cool as what we did on Valentines Day.

We were there with a couple from the East Midlands who’d won our “Valentines in Vegas” contest. Their prize was to spend the week with us and get married in the Little Church of The West on the Las Vegas Strip.

I was giving the bride away and my side-kick, Jimmy was the best man. Along with the groom, the three of us traveled to the church in a huge convertible car I’d rented.

It was like we were in a movie. Three blokes wearing tuxedos and sun glasses, top down, me driving, Jimmy riding shotgun and the groom in the back.

The only thing was, NO ONE was paying a blind bit of notice. If three blokes in sunglasses and tuxedos drove a convertible along Mansfield Road in Nottingham, we would have stopped traffic but this was Las Vegas, nothing out of the ordinary!

Craic on!
