Keith McGowan recalls his years at 3AW with 'colleague' Derryn Hinch. In the mid 70's I was doing the Afternoon Program on 2UW (now MIX 106.5). I lived in Penrith and travelled to and from the CBD by train. Two hours a day on public transport and you'll read anything you can get your hands on. In Sydney's small paper there was a restaurant review column titled "The Hungry Hinch" and I read it each week little knowing that the writer, Derryn Hinch was to figure so prominently in my life over the next decades.

Insiders joke that it was the carpet the casino rejected allowing 2SM owner, Bill Caralis to buy it for a song.
