Ian (Hoges) Hogan
I am a lifetime Geelong resident with Geelong born parents. I grew up in Geelong West attending Ashby Primary and Geelong West Technical school in Herne Hill.
A fitter/toolmaker by trade, I have worked in various tool rooms and factory maintenance workshops until the 1980’s and since then I have worked in transportation.
I have loved music all my life and I’ve played bass guitar in various bands for many years.
As a teenager, I developed a love of radio and spent countless hours at the studios of the now defunct 3GL. David Coburn (3GL’s chief announcer) got me interested in ‘Old time’ music with his program (the original) SWEETHEARTS OF YESTERDAY.
I developed my radio skills at Country FM where I did everything from On-Air presenting, Outside Broadcasts, Production and Management duties.
I joined The Pulse in the 90’s doing the country music program as well as the studio side of Football and Cricket broadcasts and sharing the old time music show with the “Legendary Bob Appleton.”
When the opportunity arose at The Pulse, I developed my own version of the late David Coburn’s program naming it SWEETHEARTS OF YESTERDAY in his memory and using his voice in the program’s identification tags each week.
In keeping with the ‘old style’ music, as well as being an old fuddy-duddy, I don’t have any social media connections.
