Here’s a flashback to the last Top 1000 countdown on Classic Rock 95.3
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.
The whips thing is odd an ad for jewellers Mazzuchellis
recorded this earlier this year when I heard Spoonman had made the transition from the house of M’s back to where he worked at 2UE in the Eighties when I had the pleasure of working there
As I recall Brian had a great like of the rock band The Fixx, Stand or Fall and other songs good on him we used to joke around about my aspirations of becoming a “Rock-Jock” which strangely get’s me onto the book by David Day, I must get a copy

Re the aircheck Kevin Hillier & The Morning Crew
The line up was me (Host) , Denis O’Kane (news) Paul ‘ Wally” Weissel (Sport) he was before Grubby came on board and Diane Dunleavy (Dee Dee)
We went to Number one (all stations) early in 88 and at the end of 89 I left to join Triple M as host of Kevin Hillier & The D-Generation Breakfast Show.
That show went to number one early in 91. Great memories for me. Re Jukebox from Hell the Farnham “Sadie” induction was hilarious as John phoned in and really played along with the gag even mentioned it on stage at times I copped heaps from his fans. I was friends with John as I had him on in my 3XY days during the recording of the ‘Whispering Jack” album. He played me demos and I picked him up from Armstrong Studios several times while he was recording the album to come to 3XY.
Keep up the good work
