After 3CCC was moved to Bendigo in the late 1980’s he initiated a move to establish a station in Castlemaine but relinquished this in favour of joining with the emerging KLFM Bendigo due course he was responsible for the establishing of KLFM studio’s and facilities in Castlemaine where he became manager.
When KLFM’s manager and hierarchy unexpectedly closed KLFM Castlemaine he began the work to obtain a community radio license for Castlemaine. This resulted in ACMA eventually awarding a Community Radio license for Castlemaine.
