As a ten year old, Monique Bowley presented 'New Kids On The Block Radio', which was her mostly introducing songs that she had recorded off the top 40 and onto her Casio tapedeck. What a nuffy. Since then, she's produced and presented broadcast radio, on both commercial talkback, and with the ABC; she was the Director of Podcasts at the Mamamia Podcast Network, where she hosted several shows; and she is now an Executive Producer at the ABC's Audio Studios; a podcast production house, where she is working on several new shows for 2018.
You can listen to some of her earlier work here:
