Mechie (Paul) Mech

PROGRAM:

The Mechie Show (Saturday 6-8pm)

WHERE IS ‘HOME’?: 


Sawtell

HOW DID YOU COME TO BE LIVING IN THIS AREA? 


My wife and I decided to make a fresh start up here as Sydney was becoming too expensive and it was doing our heads in.

WHAT DOES YOUR PROGRAM OFFER TO LISTENERS?


My show features songs mostly from the 70’s to the 90’s that did get air play when they were first released but you don’t hear them anymore or not very often on mainstream radio. The show also tends to focus on new entries in the 90’s music charts as that was the decade I grew up in. I will also occasionally play newer stuff that doesn’t get heard very often these days.

WHY DID YOU GET INVOLVED IN TRIPLE B? 


I had done some work for Triple M and Hit 105.5 and that work had dried up. I needed to get back to doing my hobby and 2 Triple B was very welcoming.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT ON AIR AT TRIPLE B? 


Taxi Driving in Coffs Harbour. Also walking around Sawtell early in the morning with the rest of the local tank top weakening exercise brigade (I recently lost 50kgs).

IF YOU WERE TO STAGE YOUR OWN FESTIVAL IN BELLO, AND COULD HAVE ANY THREE HEADLINE ACTS WHO WOULD THEY BE?


Simple Minds, Alan Parsons Project, Machinations
