The much-loved Myf Warhurst in conversation as she spills the backstage beans on work, fame, feminism, failure, love and success.
In Myf’s joyous memoir, Time of My Life she shares funny, fabulous, and occasionally fraught tales about growing up in a small country town with an unhealthy Countdown obsession, working in Australian radio and her experiences on the much-loved music quiz show Spicks & Specks.
Music has always shaped Myf’s life, whether she was watching Daryl Braithwaite on TV on a Sunday night or listening to the crackle of the needle across vinyl as Agnetha and Anni-Frid took her from rural Victoria to Eurovision. Later her love of music (and the realisation that a professional pianist gig wasn’t part of the plan) would shape her career.
Like a sommelier matches food with wine, Myf matches hits with memory, and in the process reminds us all that, as Louis Armstrong said, “Music is life itself.”
