Here’s an excerpt from the History Channel Documentary “Thanks for Listening” The history of Australian Radio by Graham McNiece Productions, Tim is talking about an experience on the hotline with the then PD Rod Muir and gaps on-air, hilarious as every jock can relate to this scenario, being “chewed out ” as some radio peeps would often put it, and usually because the boss was in a bad mood no doubt he’d just had the same from his boss, also includes a quick check from 1420 3XY jock Lee Simon, very young as the photo shows
Some background from a former Production guru, I thought the voice here was Gary Roberts,
The time period (1981) is right for Gary still pulling air shifts (10am – 2pm) while being Program Director but it is Mr. Smooth John Hood on the audio.
The music and time call is a night time shift which Gary would not have done. Hoodie did the 6pm – 10pm shift. He never did many commercial production voices so I don’t have a strong memory of his actual voice. But the slow laconic style and language fits John Hood as I remember him.
