I ventured from Melbourne to Sydney to follow my favourite sporting team, the Western Bulldogs, play a preliminary final on 24th September. While there, why not catch up with an old mate of mine, shoot the breeze and record it?
So at the time of recording, the football matches hadn’t happened yet. Listening to this, you hear me unaware that the Bulldogs would not only go on to win that match in Sydney, but the Grand Final the following week, becoming the AFL Premiers for the first time in 62 years. That relates to my happiness though (I’m pretty bloody happy right now) – here are a few details about my guest.
Brooklyn Ross is the newsreader for The Kyle & Jackie O Show on KIIS 106.5 in Sydney. We met while he was on work experience at Power FM Bega more than 10 years ago and it’s a delight to see his career grow so successfully. He also runs what’s fast becoming an empire of online radio stations. What started as a hobby has become a serious business and his boldness and bravery are paying great dividends. Check his brands out here.
Before it was politically fashionable, Brooklyn shared his sexuality on Sydney radio station The Edge and played a major role developing a publicity campaign for marriage equality. He’s not phased at all with sharing himself, creating things, and bracing for any consequences. I hope you like his attitudes, and the songs he’s added to the Ever-growing Playlist of Joy!
Hit me up on any social media @TheSongNerd where I’m happy to discuss the podcast or topically this weekend, the FOOTY!!!
