Looking Back with Andrew Phillips


98five, the radio station where I work, began broadcasting full time on the 26th of January, 1988 and over the past week we’ve been celebrating our 25th Anniversary Year.

Someone who was there in the very beginning, over 25 years ago, was Andrew Phillips. Andrew was an announcer and producer in the early years. On a personal level he was also a good friend and the person who conducted my wedding ceremony back in 1992.

Since leaving 98five Andrew has been involved in a number of ventures in Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.

I chatted to Andrew this week and you can hear our conversation by clicking the play button on the audio player at the bottom of this post.

  • Really enjoyed the interview, and to hear my son voice, am I biased to say I think Andrew has a lovely voice for Radio but then I am his mother!! I remember too the opening of Sonshine and Andrew’s involvement we tried hard to support, and recognized the financial struggle, but it has come through …..Congratulations and every good wish and blessings for yet another 25 years…..Joan Phillips….
