Pablo Newton Farley has been constantly hassled and questioned over his long name and lack of Spanish and artistic flair.
From boyhood the wanna be gangsta-basketball-Eminem child grew up in Bendigo, Central Victoria before departing home for the big city of Melbourne and university.
After dragging studies out for as long as possible his 3 year degree suddenly turned into a 7 year course which would eventually materialise into a radio degree and later a breakfast show on SYN known as The Pabs and Buggs show.
Once finished university he jetted off to Europe where he would spend a summer in the South of France selling wine and struggling with his le and la’s in French, snowboard in the Alps, play volleyball for a summer in the Greek Islands before being a barman in Germany and then finally returning to Australia.
He’s been in the Pilbara for over 4 years now after joining the Spirit Radio 1260 Team where his love of Ricky Gervais and Karl Pilkington is surely shining through. On reflection Pablo’s radio style can be summed up with a Karl Pilkington gem: "I find that if you just talk, your mouth comes up with stuff...”
Apologies in advance for him being Victorian and constantly complaining on-air about it being just "tooo hot."
Funniest Radio Moment? Prank calling a pharmacy and
informing them that I would be bringing my injured friend in by wheel
barrow, without using the word wheel barrow. Pretty Sure she thought I
was clinically insane.
Favourite Music? I'm re-living my unfortunately middle class well behaved youth through my boyhood love of Eminem.
Favourite Sport? Basketball without a doubt I've never been a fan of egg ball (AFL).
