Chats to amazing people all around the World on Social Media... which I'm addicted to, Collects coloured vinyl records which will be featured on this page now and then. I enjoy taking photos, and I sometimes play Rocksmith, a game that teaches you how to play Guitar. I'm not all that dedicated to it, but it's nice every so often, just to indulge in my rock fantasies.
I'm known to have a little furry problem, but never fear, a tummy rub will solve almost anything.
I also love Alaskan Malamutes, I have my third now, She's a little ball of fluff called Jette, whose photos often appear on my social sites.

Hello and Welcome to my page.
My name is Wolfie Rankin, at least that's the name I'm most widely known as,
and it seems to have stuck.
During my teenage years, I had a passion for radio, and wanted to get into the industry, so after leaving High-School, I went to a Radio School called "The Radio Works", Where I learnt all aspects of radio including how to read News and Ads, and more hands on things like editing...
Yes, editing actual tape.
After that I spent three years at a community station called 97.9FM,
which is based in Melton, Victoria.
I wrote CSAs, Sponsorships and produced recorded work, as well as my own pop music show, playing 80s pop... Well it was the 80's so it was quite easy to do.
Just when it looked like I might get work in Commercial Radio,
My health declined, and I had to leave radio.
Things have since changed, and I'd love to work again, but I must work from home due to my health... although I feel better, getting out still poses difficulties for me, although a short trip into Melbournes CBD shouldn't be too difficult, please don't be afraid to ask.
I'd really like to provide a solid Aussie voice to your Advertisements, Promos, Trailers or whatever you think I'd be best suited for, Let's experiment, I love new, creative ideas.
Have a listen to some of my Audio here and see what you think.
If you like what you hear, I can be hired for sound. ;)
