In 2013 I had to conduct a series of recordings for MIX 106.3’s digital radio station ‘Canberra 100‘, created to promote 100 years since the birth of Australia’s capital.
One of these recordings was to speak to personalities of Canberra, so I reached out to Tim Ferguson – a TV personality and comedian who is part of a comedy trio The Doug Anthony All-Stars that got their start in the heart of Canberra’s CBD.
Out of the 30 minute raw chat, only 45 seconds of it got used for a radio vignette. But I kept the interview, thinking I could re-use it one day. Over the years and many portable hard drives later, I thought I had completely lost the file until I found it one weekend.
It was good enough to tweak it a tiny bit (remove dated references of upcoming books that have now been published) and I released it through My Geek Culture.
