And at a p two people to employ I was one of the two to five get employed so look a lot and when I look back on it was such a rudimentary operation. This is how ellery they always dead plants and I know it from being stagehand. I went there I had to. I took part in a country. Music Shirk will country to style and Always liked to work one day and when the setting up and the the floor manager under the He likes to whip you get punished almost cheating so essentially to clean the toilets and I was never liked to work again after that but it was a great learning experience because it was live band.

I would produce juicing programs seven days a week many of them live here and he's got the onslaught live who say now it's wrong to. You've got to be ready. GotTa right and if you're not in you gotta work your way out of the whole you're dug yourself into an an are really enjoyed that every we didn't have much technology she said you had to find ways to mating and I think that's a really good grounding point to be able to do that and I start at his estate into certain certainly because of people who seek people will lady.

Coming at a lot that really enjoyed it would have been happy to keep gun except the manager at the time Said said that He thought to more and wanted to become involved so that director the school report that said good aptitude and loads of potential is now coming colletion sort of this. I was also one of the lucky ones to get noticed because I think we we had Non tain twenty crew with him for that. TV stations on the floors cameraman Soundman Roy.

That was then this the way the tripod wait last time that we put it this time of year and he didn't make any changes from one week to the next year. It's the same thing ever again for a lot of technology that existed at that stage. That's about all you can do because it wasn't very portable but when when things started to change I could say some opportunities to do things differently and absolutely knocked everybody out one day when those directing a football guy and it's a very close finish to the guy and there's a lot of emotion for one of the teams that was involved with people because West torrens and this huge emotion Russia Iran off the field after winning by two or three points and I said to the cameraman we had with Downing Portable Cameron With a headache.
