For close to fifty years, Martin, together with his brother Aubrey, have worked in the Australian entertainment industry under the stage name of “Aubrey and Martin”
They were awarded the Australian Entertainment “Mo” Award for Variety Duo on 3 occasions and their vocal & multi-instrumental show has seen them invited to headline at some of the most popular international festivals in the US including World Fest in Branson, Missouri and The Festival of Nations in Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, in Tennessee. They have also been the recipients of numerous song writing and recording awards.
Last year, the brothers decided that even though they still love performing, that they would retire from the Club work scene while they were still at the top of their game and on their own terms.
Martin is a member of Wyong and Dynamic Dora Creek Toastmasters.
He has only been at Lake Macquarie FM for a very short time and is loving the challenges involved in radio broadcasting. He present his show “Triple Treat” every Sunday morning between 9 am and Noon where he plays the music which he has been associated with throughout his life.
Having been born in Ireland, he loves the Celtic section of his program. However listeners are lucky that he has also been involved in Folk and Country music for most of his life so, in his own words “Where else can our listeners enjoy the sounds of their favourite music for three hours straight each week?
The answer, of course, is, right here on Triple Treat Sundays with Martin Beggs.
He also presents “Lake Mac Life”, every Monday between 9 am and Noon to keep you informed about what is happening in our “neck of the woods”.
