Celebrating 20 years of Beddy Phil: “the rock eisteddfod for home school children”
Big Brother is starting up again. How exciting for everyone. 20 years ago I was Christian and contemplating my place in youth culture. I’d just started my segment on Triple J’s Morning Show and it was my way of making sense of things.
I came out of the gates with my own national radio segment when I was twenny one. It was the back to front trajectory of a reality show winner – my equivalent was winning ABC radio doco comp. Heywire in 2001. This led to some accidentally-on-purpose hustle that got my bum in the door at Triple J.
The rest is internet history. Please enjoy an off-license j-file of how it went down.
