Hayden Sherley interviewed by Jim Sullivan. Hayden talks to Jim about his early days in broadcasting. He began working as an announcer for 2ZB in 1953, and is currently involved in the National Radio Music Programme and Take Five, a programme for older listeners. Hayden was one of the founding fathers for the Announcers Training School in the 1960s, along with Bob Wright. Originally the school was set up to recruit people, train them and give them the correct tools for the job. The training also covered television broadcasting, including voice production, knowledge of speech and how to communicate with people. He talks about his work at the training centre and his views on broadcasters today.
