FOX FM Rob Elliott rock by request1990s

The Wheel on the radio turns with Rob Elliot, here he is on Melbournes re-jigged FOX when they became a Classic Rock radio station the format lasted about 3 years before they reverted to the Rock/Pop music, Phil O’Neill scored this gig strangely enough as it was rating well but thats radio, nothing ever makes sense, does it , like the last guy on here, wants 7 seconds by that’ll do, a nighty night song, there was an annoying clown that would call in for Zeppelin but at least he knew the format, here’s Trampled Underfoot

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

Cheers Kev
