Presenter/Programmer

Nigel’s interests include chemistry, commerce, cricket and classical music – with a special passion for opera. He joined 3MBS in 2011 and presents Wednesday Nights at the Opera each week at 8pm.

A scientist by training, Nigel fell in love with opera through Gilbert and Sullivan (he joined a G & S Society as a way to meet girls – no, really!) as a student and for a couple of years chemistry took a back seat to performing in and producing amateur and semi-professional operas and operettas. Since then a career in technology corporations has provided Nigel with the opportunity to explore other fascinations – travel, cuisines, languages and cultures. ‘I love travel but one of the best things is returning home! And what better way to de-stress after a gruelling trip than spending four hours on Wednesday nights in a soundproofed studio, cuing up CDs, tweaking the dials, scheduling the sponsor messages and, most importantly, listening to gorgeous singing.’
