Natural Born Keller

Thursday 22 October, 2015

Amanda Keller, co-host of WSFM101.7’s Jonesy & Amanda in the Morning has launched her own book.

Natural Born Keller; My Life and Other Palaver is published by Allen & Unwin and released today lifting the lid on life on-screen and off with not so longing looks back at growing up in the burbs in the decade taste forgot. 

...from her childhood in sunny Brisbane to her daggy teen years in suburban Sydney. Then onto heady college days in Bathurst, where wine was called 'claret' and came in a box, and finally to establishing a stellar career in TV and radio.

Along the way she falls in love with 'a nice Kiwi boy' who becomes her husband and she tells the story of the arrival of their two hard-won sons. But without too many icky bits.

Amanda also takes us behind the scenes of her TV career - from the challenge of turning on a typewriter at Simon Townsend's Wonder World!  to the fun of travelling the globe for Beyond 2000, despite having no scientific background and absolutely no sense of direction. More recently she was able to officially represent an entire generation on Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation and share a couch with three blokes and the odd snake on The Living Room.

Amanda looks back on twenty years of radio, from sharing a mic with Andrew Denton on Triple M to topping the breakfast show ratings with Jonesy on WSFM.

Read Peter Saxon’s review and talk with the author next week.
