ABC Upper Hunter broadcaster Mike Pritchard clocks up 30 years behind the mic in Muswellbrook

Every working day for the past 30 years — from the day the ABC Upper Hunter office in Muswellbrook opened — Pritchard has climbed out of bed at 3.30AM, driven from his home in Scone (about 20 minutes away) and prepared and presented a two-hour radio program which goes to air from 6.15am.
