Starting his radio career in July 1998, Chris Caggs began his journey in Australian live radio at Sydney’s Pump FM 99.3 in Killara on Sydney’s North Shore – hosting a program with Cameron Griffiths (Mista-C) called “Bedroom Vibes” showcasing Slow Jam RnB, which found them in the spotlight as the first Hip Hop and RnB Community Station in Australia.
To push and continue to challenge his career in Australian FM radio, Chris Caggs wanted more airtime driving him to a 24/7 365 days a year station launching in late 1998 called DJ-FM 87.6 Dance Radio. The station serviced the Sydney CBD and Inner Suburbs. In particular, many record labels supported DJ-FM with music such as Universal Music Group, Sony Entertainment, Warner Music and many others.
In October 1999, Chris Caggs was given the opportunity to work for the new station called Groove FM 96.9fm by Mike Scott, Lawrence Johnson, Stacy Q, Darren Leigh, Yozi and Aaron Eaton. Chris Caggs with Darren Leigh launched Groove FM 97.3 in Brisbane August/September 2000.
