My name is Benjamin Wasley, you may remember me from my work as Giggling Ben on Hamish and Andy, or even Bad Boy Ben with the Vixen back in the 90s, but way before any of that, when I was 19, I moved from the seclusion of my bedroom at my parents’ house in Adelaide, all the way to the isolated Western Australian mining town of Karratha, to start work as a radio announcer for the very first time at a little radio station called 6KA. My Godmother gave me a diary to record every momentous occasion and now, 30+ years later, I’m going to find out how weird, arrogant, lame, self-absorbed and closeted the teenage version of me was.
