Thursday at 4 pm join Michael Gin for favourites from the 60s and 70s and more.


Michael Gin

Michael has now fulfilled his childhood dream to become a radio broadcaster. Always chatty, and with an incessant grin and a wink in his eye, Michael may be familiar to you as a front-line tenor for the Ch 9 Carols By Candlelight Choir, from his participation in independent and musical theatre, from multimedia advertising campaigns for Beyond Blue and Deloitte Australia, or from his appearances on Gogglebox Australia and several TV game shows.

Michael has made seven game show appearances to date, twice on ABC Hard Quiz (March 2021 and 2022) where he is recognised as Australia’s expert on “Bugs Bunny”. In May 2022, Michael won his episode of SBS Mastermind Australia, his expert topic being “the life and music of US singer-songwriter, Carole King”. TV comperes love to target Michael to showcase his cartoon character impersonations and singing abilities

Michael is in the process of winding down his 43 year career as a high school teacher of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Outside of community radio and school teaching, Michael now sings with four community choirs during the week. He has recently signed on to become a baritone mentor for the members of the renowned Choir Of Hard Knocks. Michael’s recollections of listening to radio in his youth were recently published on the NFSA Radio 100 project website.
