Ken Capps - May 2021


I was born into a mixed farming family at Cowra, Central NSW.
After leaving school at 16 the farm wasn't big enough to support us all, so I set up a small transport business which continued on until retirement 56 years later. I held one of the first B-Double driver's licence in NSW.
My first on air experience was on 2LF Young when I was about 13.
Little did I know what it would lead to.

On retiring we moved to Coffs Harbour in 2016.

I met a bloke named Burnsie.
His first question was, what are you going to do with your time ?
I dunno.
Well, come on air at 2AIRFM.
No, I don't want to go on air.
How about work in the Office ?
I suppose I could answer the phones.
The next week I was sitting at the desk at 2AIR at the Jetty Village Studios.
The first day I was asked again, when are you going on air ?
Answer: I'm Not.
One year later I was playing my loved country music on air.

During my time at 2AIRFM I have also worked with the late Joe Mace on Sponsorship sales & fund raising. I have served on the Committee Of Management for a number of years.
I have only retired from The COM & Sponsorship sales last year.
The old man is catching up.

I have really enjoyed my time at 2AIR, made some lasting friendships and hope to continue for some time yet.
