Ugly Phil on rebuilding bridges, career reinventions and why he left the Hot 30
This week on You’ve Gotta Start Somewhere, Rachel Corbett chats with radio legend, Phil O’Neil.
After taking a bus across the Nullarbor to his first job in South Headland, WA, Phil worked his way up to one of the most high-profile shows of the 1990’s The Hot 30 Countdown.
Phil has proved he’s a true radio survivor, clocking up 39 years in the business and almost as many moves, hosting shows all over the country as well as drive at KIIS FM in London.
These days you can hear Phil on the airwaves at his spiritual home, Triple M where he hosts afternoons and My Generation.
In this episode, Phil talks openly about his past penchant for burning bridges and why he decided to change the way he behaved in the business, the importance of apologising for your mistakes and why after a million career reinventions, he’s exactly where he wants to be.
You’ve Gotta Start Somewhere is a podcast that goes behind the scenes of show business to prove there’s no such thing as an overnight success.
