Where Did You Get Your Break: Craig Huggins
Craig Huggins currently has the #1 FM shift 9am to 1pm on Gold104.3 in Melbourne and this week back in 1981, he got his break as a 3XY Junior DJ making it all the way to the finals. Who was the PD at the time who then gave him a job while he was still at high school? This is Craig’s 3XY Story.
In both the heats, and Grand Final we had to write and read copy, play songs off cart, back announce, all the jock type stuff. We were on the stage at Shopping Centres around Melbourne, it was quite daunting.
This was the brief we got.
I won the heat, then the final, and part of it was 10 minutes on-air. Greg Smith was PD and liked what I did, then gave me a call asking if I’d like to do mid-dawns. I was still at school, so did mid-dawn during the week, went home, slept for a bit, then went to school each day. I also did weekend breakfast.
There was no 2ndplaced announced.
You can hear Craig Huggins on Melbourne’s Gold 104.3 , 9am to 1pm and Cruise 1323 Adelaide from 1pm-4pm weekdays as well.
