FM104TripleM Rocks Greatest hits imaging from 1995

This is a quick sample of imaging from Brisbanes FM104Triple M in 1995 Phil Moroney was the station voice and voice of Nine Queensland, this was part of an on-air campaign to entice listeners away from 4KQ who were the “Latest Memories, Greatest Hits” station with Bob Gallagher as PD and yours truly on the overnight and some weekend gigs, and btw 6 hours is a marathon shift, but Monday mornings were awesome with Laurel and Kim on brekky and John Knox as my newsreading mentor, now there’s a thought, why did I not go into news.

I just love how at any given time John Knox can still be heard every TOH with the “4KQ693AM News” news intro, rack up some TSL’s and you’ll hear Phil with more classic imaging

Not sure who the big ballsy read is from here, after hearing Scott McBain from Adelaide, somehow I doubt it would be him as the station back in 1995 used local voices apart from Steve Britten.

Recently the original FM 104 Lunchbox was re-introduced to the present day station, Triple M 104.5, and the PD even contacted Billy Healy who was in fact both the Music Director and the 2nd original breakfast announcer at 4MMM after it became FM 104 Rock in Stereo, Rod “Mr T” Tiley (News Director) was also paired with Bill and they became constant ratings winners.

not to sure who this is, but the punter calling in could be another jock putting on the act to get some rock played, which used to occur quite a bit, after you put the phone down, you’d be left thinkin’, that sounded familiar, and then continued cueing the next CDTriple M bris 1995 RADANT

Love it when you find something you knew you had, this was transferred from a cassette about 5 years ago, from memory this timeframe was not long after new management were in control, (Hoyts Media) also when the front wall came to life see pic below

Funny how this post came about, Sheridan Stewart was recently on GOLD 104.3 breakfast when I mistook her dulcet tones for Simone, not to worry they are after all brilliant announcers, (jocks the term I usually have the habit of using , shocking maybe as some would prefer to be called the preceding)

incidentally the Movie, of the same name was great name for a nighttime radio gig

More Classic Rock imaging, forgive me for annoying those who don’t share the same love of Rolling Stones etc etc, McGregor lives this was from 1995 when there was a slight tweak in the format, new billing as ahem, cough, cough “The New Sound ” 104.5 NOT FM 104 sorry to say this but after 2000 (some would argue 1989) the whole FM 104 concept was flushed and today well that is another post I think, those who know me in my mind FM 104 Rock in Stereo still lives on cos’ thats the spirit of Rock n’ Roll!

Dateline, Rocktober 15 1996, another typical Two for Tuesday featuring some of the best Aussie, Rock n’ Roll Recall to win you cd’s, that semi driver tut,tut, love the way Gregg, highlights the incident by saying Avoid,  Avoid, Avoid, there’s even a double from Bad company, ahh yes the Classic Rock was always flowing frequently on FM 104, haven’t heard Twofer Tuesday lately except when my local Star 104.5 started doing Two For Tuesday that was under Ryan Rathbone 2006, Vic Davies, Todd Widdicombe and Kim for Breakfast, Mandy Coolen was Morning jock, Matt McHugh, Kent Small was the Music guru, oops sorry I digress, this aircheck is about Gregg Easton, one of my fellow jocks from as I shamelessly keep touting as FM 104 Rock in Stereo, Australia’s Best Classic Rock Radio station, Are you gonna challenge me on that ?
