Reviving the past into the future!

Live broadcasting to the internet is the next phase of a media career which spans back to 1975 and includes active involvement with football, speedway, motocross, horse racing, harness racing, pony trots, lawn bowls, cricket, basketball, baseball, go-karts, hockey & netball. As well as commentating and archiving special events (sporting or non-sporting) for recall at a later date, ‘My Retro Media’ was founded to produce programmes and newsheets from scratch and provide an interview and emcee service. My research of football in and around Albany (dating back to 1880) began in 1999. It covers Albany Football Association, Southern Districts Football League, Great Southern Football League and Ongerup Football Association. It is available for purchase and is located under the ‘Football History’ prompt.
