Hedland Personalities

Paul Wojtasiak
(Breakfast 6am-11am)

Born in Perth, Paul has always seemed to gravitate towards the microphone, spruiking deli meats at the supermarket, boarding calls at the airport or MC’ing games for the Perth Wildcats.

Who do you follow in the AFL? I’m an Eagles fan all the way – 2014 should be a good season!
What’s on Your iPod? It’s pretty diverse! Everything from Bruno Mars to Bonobo – Vydamo to Van Morrison – Flume to Fleetwood Mac! Grew up listening to Daryl Braithwaite, Metallica. Love attending all kinds of live music: Festivals, orchestras, acoustic, everything!
What do you do outside the studio? I love my basketball, playing, watching, reffing anything! Enjoy going out and watching a movie.

Matthew "Matt" Layton
(Afternoons 11am-4pm)

Who do you follow in the AFL?  Can’t go past the West Coast Eagles – Some of my earliest memories are the 92 and 94 premierships. Carn the Eagles!
What’s on your iPod?  Bit of everything – Green Day, Foo Fighters, Avicii, Pharrell Williams – I’m easy to please – anything that’s got a good vibe and keeps me on my feet!
What do you do outside the studio? Listening to music on the iPod, exploring this amazing town, and keeping up to date with the latest news. I go by the mantra “News is power” – though don’t get me started on federal politics – I’ll talk for hours!

Justin Thomson
(Early Breakfast 5am-6am)

Justin started on radio and television after graduating high school in 2000.
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!
If you could swap jobs with anyone in the world right now who would it be? And why? President Obama because I want Airforce One.
Favourite Music? Modern country music! But many artists including John Farnham, Maroon 5, Elton John, Billy Joel and a stack more.
Best concert/s you have ever seen? When I go to see a concert I want to see more than just a band performing or an artist singing, I have seen SO many great performers but I would have to say (because of that little bit extra) Garth Brooks and John Farnham!

Mark Pascoe
(Sunday Gold)

Mark loves AFL, cricket, movies, good food and wine, beer and all types of music. When he's not on air you'll catch him hanging out at the beach with his wife Shelly and son James.
Your favourite band: The style council
Fave food: A good steak

Favourite tv show: 2 and a half men

Darren De Mello
(Evenings 4-6pm)

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.

Daniel Gunn

You win lotto this weekend. What's the first thing you'd do? Check how much I've won.
Favourite salad dressing - French or Balsamic vinagrette.
List some songs you associated with 'love' in high school. Boom boom boom, Love in an elevator, Pour some sugar on me.
AFL team – Richmond

Troy Stockden
(Late Nights, Caravan & Camping Show)

Troy is a born and bred West Aussie who loves anything sporty and having a great time with his Family and Friends.
Favourite Ice-cream: Caramel
What makes an ideal weekend? Sleeping in
Your favourite music: Anything but Jazz or Opera…
