has been with the Spirit Network for a couple of years now, starting
his career in Broome on the afternoon shift and then hosting the
breakfast show here in Port Hedland. Originally from Melbourne, he now
happily calls WA home.
Who do you follow in the AFL: The Bombers! Which means I'm a bit out of my depth in WA - its all Eagles and Dockers here.
Favourite Food: Mexican all the way. Enchiladas, Tacos, Quesadillas…you make it, I'll eat it!!
What's on the Box: Entourage was my all time favourite show, Johnny Drama is possibly the funniest character on TV, EVER. Lately its been eclipsed by Mad Men though. I cant get enough of that show, Don Draper is the man.
What could we find you doing on the weekend: I'm a sports nut so depending on the season, either watching the Bombers on TV or playing cricket for the mighty Wanderers. Failing that, check one of Port Hedland's many thirst quenching establishments, I shouldn't be far away!
Favourite Music: The iTunes list is fairly varied – I grew up on a diet of 60's & 70's guitar rock and never got the love of that music out of my system. Of today's bands, some of my favourites include Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, Queens of the Stones Age & The Black Keys.

His first job was as a TV presenter for the popular WA TV show “The Saturday Club”, after a couple of years on TV he began radio in the south west of WA. Justin juggled both radio and TV for about 8 years until he decided to go fulltime radio! He hasn’t looked back since!

Darren De Mello
West Aussie? Through and through! Darren was born in Geraldton, raised in Perth and learned to drive in Bunbury. That means that he's almost guaranteed to pronounce the suburbs and towns correctly when he's on Telethon. He's also been on WA radio for half his life, which you would assume would give him an unparalleled knowledge of music and broadcasting. Sadly, this is not the case, hence him working on Spirit.
Do you untie your shoes before you take them off? Almost always, since the accident…..
What is the first thing people notice about you? The smell maybe…
Do you shave your head with a razor, or electric shaver? Cut-throat, the old school razor with shaving cream and the potential for serious injury all the way.
If you could be anyone else for a week, who would you be and why? Cameron Daddo. His wife is Alison Brahe. The reason? You're allowed one guess!
