RA Aircheck – 4SB 1963 Tony MacArthur

Historical journey to the South Burnett region and the Station now known as 1071 AM and part of the Macquarie Network and my apologies as I left this off

This guy went on to be part of the “Geoff, Tony and Bob” phenomenon at 4BC” and from the Radio Facebook page thanks to P.S. ” That name rings a bell. Wasn’t he the Tony of the “Geoff, Tony and Bob” team at 4BC in the sixties? 
Also wasn’t the (Alberts co-owned) 4SB mostly on relay from 4BC at the time? 
Maybe this program came from a studio at 4BC – just like 4AK’s Breakfast& late Afternoons (we’d call it Drive now) came from Studio 5 – “the 4AK Studio” at 4BK at the time.
The Geoff was Geoff Atkinson, and the Bob was originally Bob Smith (I think) and later Bob Wills (Wilks).
They weren’t a “team” in today’s sense – as in The Morning Team. They each did their own show, Geoff in Breakfast, Tony in Mornings and Bob in “Drive” (midday to 4 on 4BC most days”

    GTand B were very important to me as a teenager in Brisbane in the sixties. We felt we were in touch with the wide world through them Tony seemed to have a hotline to the Beatles- he was first to play their latest releases in Australia at the time I believe.
