Mike had some minor experience with community radio broadcasting in the late 1970s with the commencement of Radio Ettamogah in Albury, NSW. In his youth Mike attended many live concerts in the 1970s which stimulated his interest in the music of the time including Eagles, Jeff Beck, Cat Stevens, Fairport Convention and Eric Clapton as well as concerts featuring Australian artists such as Dingoes, Country Radio, Richard Clapton, Pirana, Brian Cadd, Daddy Cool, Mike McClennan, Bushwackers, Redgum and Stevie Wright.

Since commencing with Valley FM Mike has been actively involved with community groups particularly athletic clubs, running and walking groups. He assist in getting their message across to the community by broadcasting of their activities.
