Chris built radio studios for stations all over his adopted country after arriving from Europe in the 1960s. He worked extensively in the community radio sector, including at stations 2WEB, 2000FM and 2SER. He also worked at the ABC and SBS.

The straight talking radio technologist will be missed by the Australian radio industry.

A lovely tribute to Chris.
" irascible and contrary... also decent, loyal, incredibly smart, sensitive, and a champion of the underdog." Beautifully put!
