March 21. Day 81. My ABC

It's with me in bed when I wake up in the morning. It drives to work with me and accompanies me on my morning walk. I love my ABC and I especially love 612 ABC Radio Brisbane. I know I am not alone. 
I also know that I am very privileged to be able to have my voice heard on the ABC airwaves. Once a week for more than 10 years I have turned up in the Brisbane studios and talked about all things relating to children and families. For most of that time Spencer Howson has been the man on the other side of the desk and this photo was taken of Mr Howson doing his ratings-winning stuff this morning. 
As a former print journalist and someone who teaches journalism as my "day job", all this is, off course, of great professional interest but let's face it it's also great fun. One day, when I grow up, I think radio producing might be something I would enjoy and could be good at. That said, I'm in no hurry to grow up.


  1. I saw you on the webcam sitting opposite this morning, I was waving.
    Indeed from the time I wake and now that I am in between roles 612 ABC keeps me company all day long. I sing along, I laugh, I shout at cereal box callers, I dance to tunes, I ring in and win & whine and I listen intently to conversation hour.
    Still best 8 cents a day I could ever spend..

  2. Great shot of Spencer, and lovely words. I think it might be another thing we agree on: I wouldn't mind heading back to radio. There's just something about it...
