    Julio oozes the passion in his interviews, just recently got more out bob peters,in one interview, then a few others get in a month.

    Well I'll be...never guessed that, but their was an inkling when saw all the emojis, but until then, never suspected an iota.

    Good stuff mate, bit of enthusiasm and some outlandish multis never go astray. Falc loves them - what was that bookie's name again - blimey I've forgotten - the bookie who accepted those multis ?

    Of course - I recall now - think it was Dookems!

    100% agree with the compliments about Julio and also the interview with Shaun O'D. I've had the opportunity to chat with Julio a few times and really get the feel that he is an extremely nice, genuine guy. If you're a follower of PTT Julio, keep up the outstanding work mate!

    ..then he said June, watch the interview, slip.

    yep, riders, Dookums Humphries, made a fortune laying multis, his catch cry was "how long has this caper been going".

    Dookums knew the multi's multiplied alright - all to him.

    The best multi's ever put on was when Frankie Dettori rode the card in the UK.

    He was at his highest popularity with UK punters, he rode 1, then 2, then 3, up to 4, lets go for five in a row - not a problem - more to come, these things only occur once in a blue moon - the moon was a deep blue colour that day!

    The activity and atmosphere on track with bookies scrambling in all directions, some unable to pay out makes for very funny reading.

    Let's face it - as good as the Pikester is - he's never going to ride the card - unless it happens to be a blue moon.

    Those type of multi's in the UK with a hoop like Dettori in his heyday quite popular with the rank and file, much moreso than here.

    I think the content overall has improved remarkably. These interview and insights are right on the money.

    Julio has the quality of being discernably sincere in his interviews without any hidden agenda. People open up because they trust him

    I worked with Julio at the ABC many many years ago. Good guy.
    He had the pleasure of working with some iconic figures in local media like George Grljusich, Denis Cometti, Trevor Jenkins and the one and only Max Simmonds.

    The late Wally Foreman on the ABC/720 another terrific comentator. They were easy to listen to, and commercial free helped as well.
