They say you should be careful what you wish for and Darren is living proof. He only ever wanted to be on radio and after getting a taste on 6PR aged 14, he's been filling the air around WA with his words pretty much ever since.

He does love music, which is a handy thing if you're 16 and playing songs that came out a decade before you did. A major turning point in his musical education happened when he borrowed the station copy of The Wall from Pink Floyd on vinyl and listened to the whole album through headphones. The poor guy never looked back.

Now even though his musical taste is pretty broad, we do notice a particular little glint in his eye when WAMI season rolls round and he gets to play the pick of the emerging West Oz talent.

He can be informative, silly, quite interesting, (occasionally) funny and even plain weird...and sometimes all of the above at once, but that's what we love about him.

Just try not to get him started about Doctor Who...
