Ron E Sparks chats with 2GB’s Ben Fordham on his remarkable career
Ron E Sparks spent almost 50 years of his life in radio, and last Friday he came into 2GB to reflect on his remarkable career with host Ben Fordham.
Ron told Ben that he felt he was a bit different at school because he had a strong interest in radio and the producing aspect early on.
“I could tell I was different to the other kids at school because I talked about what the DJs did between songs while everyone was talking about the songs,” he said.
He also recalled his first job on the airwaves at 4BC, “I couldn’t believe that looking down at that turntable… that turntable was vibrating so many radio speakers right across south-east Queensland.
“I just could not believe how miraculous that was.”
Ron was also coerced into talking about the day he fired John Laws, as well as what he’s planning on doing next.
