Solid Gold…

With Colin French


Colin has had an interest in radio since a child when he ”broadcast” old 78’s around the neighbourhood. He had his first taste in the industry as a panel operator.

He also worked on commercial broadcasting stations both on air and behind the scene as a voice talent.

In the early 80’s he produced a 60’s top 40 show on Community Radio in Bankstown and later Liverpool in Sydney NSW Australia.

After a move to Bundaberg he helped set up the town’s first Community Station and later worked on a second station. Seven years later the family moved to Tasmania where he was to retire but Colin’s interest in everything radio raised its head again and he spent a short time presenting Christian pop music on the internet station ”The Journey” at lunchtime Central time in the US. Later he opened his own Internet radio, Goodtime Oldies playing exclusively 60’s classics complete with jingles of the time. Unfortunately he found as many hobby web casters did, the Government fees were beyond him and closed the station after 9 years.
