FM 104 Brisbane Andrew Kilpatrick 1986 scoped 60

Just managed to scope this one from a TDK cassette and thanks to a handy tip from Ewan J. whittled down the songs a little more, the thing i love most about these is recalling all the great tracks we played, and a superb conversation was had when the original GM phoned the other day  to remind me of the yellow cards El supremo PD Bill Riner had devised for album cuts, such as Peter Frampton Lying and Steely Dan Deacon Blues, being a full classic rock radio station we also covered soft rock such as Christopher Cross sailing and George Benson Give me the night while at the same time breaking new artists on Australian radio such as Oingo Boingo Stay and Kids in the Kitchen Current standCopy (2) of FM 104 logo pic copy
