About Untypical Radio
Untypical Radio was established by Neil Butler (that’s him on the right) who is a business owner and consultant with over 30 years of practical experience in Project Management and Delivery, Change Management, Business Process Improvement, Customer Service, Training and Education, Sales and Marketing, Account Management, Business Analysis and Information Technology. This experience has been gained in major global organisations including BP, Shell, Toyota and National Australia Bank, as well as in a number of other enterprises.
He is a qualified school teacher and has lived in or near Melbourne, Australia all his life, except for a recent nine-month stint in Sydney. In May 2015, he relocated to Geelong, 70kms south-west of Melbourne. He has been fortunate enough to have travelled and worked in nineteen countries across four continents. He has also visited some amazing places in Australia from Geraldton in the West to Byron Bay in the East and from Port Douglas in the North to Huonville in the South.
He is the father of two talented adults. His daughter, Lucy, has completed her under-graduate studies in early childhood development and education and teaches in regional Victoria. His son, Sam, has recently completed his under-graduate studies and has been accepted for further studies – a Masters of Property. He also works part-time at a suburban cinema.
Neil also hosts two regular community radio programs – Radio Ga Ga on 94.1 3WBC in Melbourne and Turn Up Your Radio on 94.7 The Pulse in Geelong. Both programs provide Neil with an opportunity to indulge in another of his great passions – music from the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s, with a specific interest in the Australian music industry. He is also part of 3WBC’s football commentary team and was fortunate enough to call the 2013 VFL Grand Final which saw the Box Hill Hawks win the premiership over Geelong.
Apart from all of that, Neil loves watching Australian Rules football (particularly games involving the Brisbane Lions) and cricket, discovering the best coffee in town and also enjoys drinking excellent Australian red wine.
