Phil Kafcaloudes from Melbourne, Australia, co-presents Radio Australiaâ€™s Breakfast Club; during the Kuta Karnival in September he broadcast the show from Bali, where The Bali Times met up with the 46-year-old of Greek lineage.
Why is Radio Australia taking part in Kuta Karnival?
We wanted to be a part of it and to meet our listeners in Bali. Bali is a very important island for us.
Whatâ€™s your impression of the karnival thus far?
Well, I just arrived last night and this morning we came to Paradise FM to do the show; so thereâ€™s been no time to get out and about yet, but we will.
How did your first broadcast go?
It was great; I really enjoyed it. Everyone was so very helpful. Even though we speak different languages, we can still use body language to communicate, so it doesnâ€™t matter.
Much reaction from listeners to the show?
Yes, a lot. There were a lot of calls coming in, mostly from Balinese, who make up the bulk of our listeners, and also from some expats.
