Day 314. Soundtrack to my life

It occurred to me the soundtrack of my life over the past 20 years of so has been strongly dominated by Australian Broadcasting Commission radio.

1994-2000: Honours and PhD studies; daily activities structured to allow for listening to Sarah MacDonald‘s morning show on Triple J – for example, I would book shared microscope and FACS facilities to conduct tedious analysis during most mornings from 9am-12pm.

2000-2003: living in Jakarta; limited radio exposure, but ABC Asia Pacific news every day on the TV.

2003-2007: back home in Adelaide, two babies in close succession; a WHOLE lot of radio as a valuable source of adult company; included Matthew Abraham and David Bevan (then Mornings hosts on 891 ABC Local Radio Adelaide) and Natasha Mitchell (then All in the Mind host).

2007-2010: part-time work, a third baby and discovered distance running as a form of exercise; enter podcasts – ABC The Health ReportABC Radio Science Show, Conversations with Richard Fidler.

2010-current: more work, increasingly hectic children’s schedules = snatches of morning and afternoon radio; constantly fighting the urge to sit in my car or fold laundry to the sounds of Natasha Mitchell (now at Life Matters), Books and Arts Daily and By Design.
