Gareth Watkins is the founder of PrideNZ.com. Ten years before the website launched in 2009, Gareth was interviewed by John Frame on Queer Radio Brisbane about his rainbow audio productions.
At the time, social media hadn't been invented and streaming media via the internet was still in its infancy and very costly. There was one website - freespeech.org - which offered free hosting of streaming content for non-mainstream material. Gareth's work was hosted on this, with material also being sent on compact disc to international rainbow broadcasters - including to John Frame at 4ZZZ Brisbane.
A special thanks to John Frame for recording this interview and allowing it to be shared and archived.Audio and Text Download mp3 Download HQ mp3
