Excerpt from 2SM’s The Concert of the Decade

This is purely from youtube, so if it disappears you’ll know why.

2SM’s original announcer Mike Drayson gives a short preface on this clip of Split Enz classic I See Red, Crowded House 1996 Farewell to the world would have been closest BIG TIME GIG the author of this post has experienced, and that probably would have been eclipsed by this at over 100k in attendance

for more great clips of this 2SM gig and for all things 2SM from 1975 to the heydays of the Sydney rock Radio Station that was an institution until around 1982  go here

2SM City Rhythm jingles part one 1978 Radio Antenna

2SM City Rhythm jingles part one 1978

With all the talk surrounding a recent post of the opening of the then brand new 2SM Studio complex at 186 Blues Point Road 1978, 1270 balloons were let loose from the 6th floor with 1 containing $1000 ( the greenies would have a field day with that today) quite by accident these jingles were acquired 6.4 MB in total so here’s part 1

I must say some of the later jingles in this package sound similar to 1360 2NX ones, no doubt the same company  2sm
