Apples grew up in Sydney and dreamed of becoming a radio announcer during his high school years. According to Apples, in those days it wasn’t considered a “proper job”. He moved to the Shoalhaven from another regional area with his wife, daughter, horses, cattle and a work dog in 2002, still
dreaming of being a radio announcer! Now he has retired from “the day job”, Apples has realised his dream, and you can hear him on Start Me Up on Saturdays from 4-6pm. It just goes to show it’s never too late!
With some eclectic, foot tapping music, Apples’ programme, Start Me Up, is trying to do just that for listeners heading into their Saturday night, start them up! And thrown in for good measure are points of interest and snippets on the artists, their songs and their place in history.
