  1. Thanks for this air check, a wonderful piece of commercial radio history. John Vertigan was one of my real favourites on ‘The Greater’, doing 2-4pm. Unfortunately, I could only ever catch the last bit of his show when I got home from school. What a great voice and faultless presentation, going on later of course to be radio’s best ever co-ordinator of race broadcasts. UZ certainly dominated the airwaves, with the best DJ’s, Don Lunn, Don Rainsford (another favourite), Alan Lappan, Ken Sparkes, Stan Rofe and I loved Saturday night’s ‘Swing Shift’ with Dick Hemming. Thanks again for posting, great memories.
