It’s the best time I’ve had in radio: John Laws

Speaking about his current shift on 2SM, John Laws told Alison Piotrowski on Channel 9’s A Current Affair:

“I’ve gotta say, I’ve never been happier. It’s the best time I’ve had in radio,”

The 82 year old has just released his autobiography, Lawsie, you wanted to know, published by New Holland.

“It’s been a terrific life, a lot of fun. I’ve done a lot of things. Hopefully I’ve done a bit of good and I’ve certainly created some stirs during my life. I hope I haven’t done too many evil things and I hope I haven’t hurt too many people,” said Lawsie.


Commenting on the Cash for Comment affair Laws told Piotrowski:

“My job is to be a salesman and that’s what I ostensibly am. If I wasn’t good at that, I wouldn’t probably be sitting her talking to you now. That’s been one of the most important things in my life, I’ve wanted to sell what is good. I’ve sold what is good and I don’t have any bones about it.”

Paul Keating was the most engaging Prime Minister of the 14 he has interviewed in his career:

“He made his mark with everybody and still is, from what I hear, because Keating was terrific fun. He was fun to interview, he was irreverent and he didn’t car too much what he said. But he had, and has, a terrific brain. Terrific brain.”

How would Laws like to be remembered?

“I’d just like to be remembered,” he said.
