Holy verifications Batman, crikey, Phil “Legend” Moroney was kind enough to talk me through this audio, initially several pro’s including Ian Wright and Ted Seymour were unsure but suggested Richard Perno, and Laurie Bennett, Phil got it from 1 listen, even said Rob works on the Sun Coast.   Thats with many thanks to the people who gave more than enough info on radio in Brisbane at that time.

So this aircheck has the distinction of being the MOST researched piece of audio on theradioantenna so far, no doubt the vault has many more.

Something is fishy about this audio, The first song played was Rush, Spirit of the radio not Vapors Turning Japanese which was the second or 3rd song in the set, and if you listen carefully sounds like somebody dropped it in from an edit, maybe it’s just me?

Happy 33rd to the Mighty House of M’s

Here’s more GOLD from one of the original 4MMM FM jocks “Locko” as he was known with a Superset, another word for a Classic Rock Triple Play, this snapshot also features then Program Director Ted Seymour on the Triple M film festival Promo the triple M back then had nothing to do with 2MMM FM that connection came later when Hoyts Media purchased the station

below is the unique original logo some likened to a paper clip, the slogan was “You won’t believe your ears”
