FM 104 Brisbane Andrew Kilpatrick 1986 scoped 60

Just managed to scope this one from a TDK cassette and thanks to a handy tip from Ewan J. whittled down the songs a little more, the thing i love most about these is recalling all the great tracks we played, and a superb conversation was had when the original GM phoned the other day  to remind me of the yellow cards El supremo PD Bill Riner had devised for album cuts, such as Peter Frampton Lying and Steely Dan Deacon Blues, being a full classic rock radio station we also covered soft rock such as Christopher Cross sailing and George Benson Give me the night while at the same time breaking new artists on Australian radio such as Oingo Boingo Stay and Kids in the Kitchen Current standCopy (2) of FM 104 logo pic copy

NEWFM Mike Webb First song and opening short version 1989

NEWFM Mike Webb First song and opening short version 1989

Sitting around last Tuesday and the phone rings, “hello”, I reply, “it’s Mike Webb”, golly,  long story short, as usual, I was reminiscing on the early days of N – E – W as it was 1st called, then it became 105 NEW FM – New for the 90’s, a great FM Classic Rock station, here is the very first few words, featuring Mike and Bruce Steggles

here’s what Mike says

Hi Andrew
Good to touch base with you, now here is something NOBODY has a copy of or has ever heard since the moment we switched the station on. In the building, the temporary station was housed top floor Nesca building for 12 months till we opened the 2 million dollar plus Darby Street station, was all the staff plus an invited throng of maybe 100 guests and clients for what became the first of three NEWFM opening partys , the first was that one we called the TONE party. That’s the moment we switched off the test tone and started two weeks of test broadcasting playing just music back to back no commercials or joks. Many I have spoken to say that was the best two weeks of radio they had ever listened to. The next party was the moment we played out first commercial for the Newcastle Permanent and the second was a Coke commercial two later and the third was the quarter million dollar party I called SKYNOVA on the foreshore when we brought the Collaroy up from Sydney to become the floating VIP centre whilst the foreshore packed in 100.000 people. I paid a professional team $10 grand to film that event and I have the master video doco end production.
