About Richard
Born in Newcastle, NSW, I was coached by one of the best radio voices in the business, the late Harold Peter Pickhover, program manager of 2KO in Newcastle, after which I attended commercial radio school for six weeks.

I began my career in commercial radio in 1956 with 2NX in Newcastle, later working with 1629am, also in Newcastle.

I later had a break from the radio industry when I moved to Avalon in Sydney where I worked on the Manly Daily as an advertising consultant.

I was later offered a position with EMI Records, which gave me the opportunity to travel around nsw.

After retiring some years later, I returned to Newcastle and discovered I missed broadcasting so much I looked for an opening in community radio.

Since then i have worked on a number of community stations in both New South Wales and Queensland.

Having settled in beautiful Forster/Tuncurry I now enjoy bringing you “sounds easy” every Sunday between 2:00pm and 6:00pm on Great Lakes FM.
