The Herb Whisperer's broadcasting career began in the mid-80's on Radio Falmer, the campus station at the University of Sussex in the UK. It was scientifically proven that not one person listened to the show. Ever.

Things improved slightly in 1989 with a move to Sydney, Australia and a weekly spot hosting a 2am - 5am show on 2SER FM. Again listeners were limited in number, boosted only at 4.45am when the audience for the most popular show on the station ("The Country Music Show") started to tune in and demand Slim Dusty tunes.

Moving across the Tasman to New Zealand was, initially, less fruitful - only one appearance on Q92FM's Desert Island Discs show in Queenstown in 1994. Even this ended badly, with the station's sales manager threatening to evict him from the studio for daring to play a Jesus & Mary Chain track.

Given such a history, being part of The Joint is something of a novelty for the Herb Whisperer. There are actually listeners and there is positive feedback (sometimes).

The Herb Whisperer worries about his alcohol intake, the amount of oil in his curries and the use of Spandau Ballet songs for crowd chants at FCUM games.
