6IX Ted Bull Final Shift final hours scoped

Ted Bull Final Shift at 6IX

This sounds like 1983 with FR David and Lionel Ritchie on the 6IX playlist

Wayne Mac just gave a rundown on Ted Bulls career ” 2HD, 2CH, 2UW, 3DB, 3KZ and his longest serving post, ABC Perth. Plus he released a song or two on RCA in the ’70s. A great broadcaster.”

RA Aircheck – 4SB 1963 Tony MacArthur

Historical journey to the South Burnett region and the Station now known as 1071 AM and part of the Macquarie Network and my apologies as I left this off

This guy went on to be part of the “Geoff, Tony and Bob” phenomenon at 4BC” and from the Radio Facebook page thanks to P.S. ” That name rings a bell. Wasn’t he the Tony of the “Geoff, Tony and Bob” team at 4BC in the sixties? 
Also wasn’t the (Alberts co-owned) 4SB mostly on relay from 4BC at the time? 
Maybe this program came from a studio at 4BC – just like 4AK’s Breakfast& late Afternoons (we’d call it Drive now) came from Studio 5 – “the 4AK Studio” at 4BK at the time.
The Geoff was Geoff Atkinson, and the Bob was originally Bob Smith (I think) and later Bob Wills (Wilks).
They weren’t a “team” in today’s sense – as in The Morning Team. They each did their own show, Geoff in Breakfast, Tony in Mornings and Bob in “Drive” (midday to 4 on 4BC most days”
