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

Thanks to “The Legend” (tagged as Andrews Legends on the mic) himself for these 4BC scoped airchecks, John Brennan also does a liner for the show, well actually it’s Phil, but it will get you too for a second, enjoy “On Record” showcasing the events and music of 1973.

As this was a large file  here’s part one weighing in at 5.26MB

Btw, who else recalls Gary Suprain as the 3XY guy and the guy who set up Darwins First FM Rock station HOT 100 4BC 74 colour copy

Another contribution here from Anonymous who says “Dennis Scanlan was a popular daytime jock on DB-Music through the 70s and 80s. This includes an “interesting” interview with Tom Waits. It’s shortened because the tape ran out, but I think you get his drift anyway.”

4BC Rob Brough Top 40 1980

4BC Rob Brough Top 40 1980

Holy verifications Batman, crikey, Phil “Legend” Moroney was kind enough to talk me through this audio, initially several pro’s including Ian Wright and Ted Seymour were unsure but suggested Richard Perno, and Laurie Bennett, Phil got it from 1 listen, even said Rob works on the Sun Coast.   Thats with many thanks to the people who gave more than enough info on radio in Brisbane at that time.

So this aircheck has the distinction of being the MOST researched piece of audio on theradioantenna so far, no doubt the vault has many more.
