Best job was travelling for ten weeks around Europe in the summer of 1984 recording a doco with the Australian Youth Orchestra. 90 odd musicians aged from 16 to 24 and 80% female. I was 27 and single. I recorded concerts at the London Proms in the Albert Hall, The Edinburgh Festival and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam amongst the many great concerts. The tour started in the historic Adriatic town of Dubrovnik.

Apart from the drinking and partying it was also the first broadcast program ever to be recorded and editing using digital sound equipment. Sony F1 encoder to betamax recorder and a modified edit suite with an RM440 a Umatic and a beta deck with parallel control.

Worst job was outside the industry stuffing chickens and making coleslaw by hand in a BBQ chicken shop.
