The bubbly pouring started early yesterday as staff celebrated 15 years since the “switch” was turned on at Nova 93.7.

The Red Hot Chilli Peppers were part of the launch of Perth’s newest station, playing their track Can’t Stop — interestingly off a CD. And while a lot has changed since 2002, a few faces around the building have not.

Host Natalie Locke has been part of the breakfast line-up since the very first day while Nathan Morris — who worked on the station’s first giveaway “Wheelie Bin of Cash” as a roving reporter — joined the show shortly after.

In that time they’ve been part of some of the world’s biggest breaking news headlines, reflecting on their time behind the desk.

“It’s crazy to think Schapelle Corby went to prison and is now out of prison since we started the show. I remember that day as we stayed on late,” Morris told AAA.

Locke remembers when they first began — a time with no social media or iPhones and even computers weren’t a given.

“We once held a competition where people had to fax in their entries and we broke the fax machine,” Locke laughed.

“The technology is crazy the way it has changed. We used to have a person writing on a whiteboard about the listener calls we had coming up,” Morris said.

Eight years ago Shaun McManus joined the show, transitioning from AFL star to radio host.

“When Shaun first started he would give us football half-time pep talks,” Locke recalled.

McManus said: “In that time I got married not long after I started with these guys, I had a daughter as well. So it’s been just unbelievable.”

General manager Gary Roberts, who has also been there since the beginning, couldn’t be prouder of the milestone.

“When you think about where Nathan came from and particularly where Nat came from — a chiropractor who was doing a bit of stand-up — and Nathan had been on Big Brother who had no radio background whatsoever, but putting unique talent together allowing them time to develop has really been what has paid off in the long term,” Roberts said.
