Beverley Chubb

Beverley Ellen Chubb was born in England in 1948 but was shipped to the Colonial parts at a very early age and later educated in Perth, West Australia.

She did plan to do a University course in History but had failed the exams. Beverley decided on a life of leisure but within a few months her parents bludgeoned her into earning a living. So she became a Dental Nurse, qualified and left — she couldn’t stand it … so she moved to work as a clerk for a transport firm and left — she couldn’t stand it … she worked as a barmaid for half an hour and was sacked. So she spent most of her time hanging around with folk and surfing crowds, took guitar lessons, used to spend a lot of time checking out local bands and was thrown out of home by irate parents.

She moved into a flat with two music freaks, played hippies until she was forced to become more respectable and joined the Perth Dental Hospital, whereupon she was immediately posted out with a mobile crew to the remote bush towns. In her spare time she formed a local folk group, who played for their own amusement, guesting at local dances. She moved to Sydney for a month, returned to Perth and eventually left for England in April 1970.

Beverley subsequently toured Europe for four months, worked on odd occasions, and was invited to join Radio Luxembourg as a typist. But she doesn’t do things in small doses and ended up as Assistant to the Programme Director, being responsible for production, playlists and artists liaison. Realising she could not become Managing Director for at least another five years she joined Radio Hallam as Music Producer and is now responsible for looking after the weekly playlist and all visiting artists as well as liaising with record companies and running the record library.

Beverley is the regular presenter of the midnight to 3.00 a.m. Saturday show “Chubbing with Chubb”. She’s also a regular contributor to the motoring programme on Fridays.
