Philip Brady celebrates 60 years in show business

Thursday 05 April, 2018

It was Easter Monday, 1958 when Philip Brady began working at Channel Nine in Melbourne.  

In a live-to-air interview on 3AW's Nightline, Philip’s radio partner Simon Owens and radio historian Kevin Trask cover Philip's amazing 60-year career. 

‘From the age of about 5, I was single-minded. I just wanted to be a radio announcer,' said Philip. 'But it didn’t work out that way. Because I ended up in television, and didn’t do any radio for maybe the first three years of my career.’​

On landing his first gig at Channel 9 aged just 18, Philip said 'Everybody at Channel 9 really resented me, they’d paid their dues. "This guy’s been born with a silver spoon in his mouth." Not true! I just got a lucky break.'

Philip went on to host shows on radio 3AK during the 60s and 80s, worked as producer for Bert Newton's morning show on radio 3UZ in the 80s, moving to the Gold Coast to host a daytime radio show on Easy Listening 97 Tweed Heads for nearly five years.
