Biography

Douglas John Mulray (born 1 December 1951, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia), was a former host of the breakfast time slot on Sydney FM radio station 2MMM (Triple M) in the 1980s. After a break from Triple M, he worked for a brief time in the PM drive time slot on 2SM with Peter Fitzsimmons before moving to Sydney radio station 2WS eventually leaving that station in July 1999. He never regained the ratings he enjoyed at his former station Triple M.

Like many in radio, he began his career at a small country station. His first gig on radio was for 2AD in Armidale. In the late 1970s, Doug landed his first permanent Sydney radio gig with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s alternative rock station Double Jay (later Triple J) before being lured to Triple M in 1982.

He often prefers to call himself Uncle Doug, Doctor Dougie, or the Reverend Doctor Doug.

One of the distinct features of his Triple M shows were the array of fictional characters that were involved in all sorts of hilarious skits. One of his best known were Jack Africa, a permanently paranoid chap who was constantly convinced that the chooks (Australian slang for chickens) were out to get him. Also featured were the Prime Mincer, a parody of Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke, and Gloria, a parody of Sydney AM radio talkback host Alan Jones. Others included Hymie Fymie, who made an art form of using the phrase “son of a bitch”, and Madam Zenda, whose cosmic predictions of the future made the morning commute to work just a little bit more bearable. (Jack Africa, Gloria and Hymie Fymie were voiced by Dave Gibson)
