What I love about being a presenter on 101FM is the instant feedback we have with our loyal listeners via Facebook and on the telephone.
On the odd occasion when I’ve run out of bargain basement prizes for ‘name that tune’ we’ve still had plenty of interaction and listeners will join in just for the fun of it!
I’ve been made to feel very welcome at Logan 101 despite not being a local and, when I suggested that I would try and work on my accent many people contact me to say that they can almost understand what I’m saying so don’t change it.
It’s great to have freedom of choice when it comes to music content and it’s just a great fun place to work.
Obviously I’m “not from round here” and actually moved to Queensland from the UK in June 2014. We have been coming to Australia on holiday for many years and my wife Tracey (The current Mrs Bennett) lived here for a few years before we got together. We have been together since 1997 but only tied the knot in 2011. . . well, there’s no point in rushing these things! We had our wedding ceremony overlooking Miami Beach on the Gold Coast and decided there and then that we wanted to settle here so we worked our way through the system, sold up the UK and the rest, as they say, is history!
My radio career commenced in 1977 with commercial radio 6NW in WA presenting a variety of ‘on-air’ programs including talk-back and interviews.
I have also been associated with the following stations:
6KA Karratha, Central Radio 87.6FM Beenleigh, 100.3 Bay FM, 91.3FM Yeppoon, Prime Radio 4RO Rockhampton, 4CC Gladstone, and the Super Radio Network FM93.5.
My roles within these networks have included Station Manager, Program Director, Music Director, Sales Manager, together with various on-air broadcasting programs.
When you are 'on air', the most important person in your life is your listener.
I'm constantly reminded why people listen to the radio:
The most important thing is....never forget your listener.
As 101FM Station Manager, being part of this great radio station has provided me with the opportunity to deliver the skills and experience required, to uphold and maintain the day to day operations of a successful radio station.
As part of our sales team, I look forward to designing a specific sponsorship advertising program to suit your individual business requirements.

I treasure the opportunity to be a presenter on 101 fm. It is a vibrant Community radio station; there is an air of professionalism about the way things are done; we have a wonderfully supportive listener base but, most of all, it has given me a chance to fulfil a life-time dream of being a ‘DJ”
I have always had an interest in music ever since I heard my parents singing Gilbert and Sullivan and, from the day I first heard a tune called ‘Caravan’ which, as I later discovered, was performed by Duke Ellington. I have also been playing guitar of different types since I was twenty and have added to this the ukulele.
I have been a Trivia Master for the past twenty years so I have had plenty of experience with a microphone and, having been a teacher for more than forty years, I have had to learn to project my voice and to master the art of understatement.

I was born in Brisbane, and have lived here all of my life As a teenager in the 1970's, I became a big fan of 70's music, and remain so today, although I enjoy popular and optimistic music from the 1960's through to today as well.
My profession is managerial, presently manager of Claremont over 50s Resort Park Ridge. I have held many roles in property and development. I have been a Real Estate Agent, Truck Driver, and various other occupations, including being a pizza maker and hotel staff member in my younger days.
