Gavin “Six Pack” Short describes himself as “a young, jolly good looking international DJ, whose eclectic career has ranged from being a docker to politics”. He first joined the Falkland Islands Broadcasting Station in 1978. After a break or two he returned to Falklands Radio as News Editor in 2017, before being elected as a Member of the Legislative Assembly in 2021. Gavin now hosts “The Mooch” on a Monday night.
He was born in Stanley (before it became a city) and has a keen interest in history, which is a large part of his weekly show.
Gavin says that he is “a bit of an old hippy at heart, living in the best little country in the world”.
His future plans include dodging the grim-reaper long enough to enjoy his pension.
