96FM Bob Stuart and Murray Dickson

96FM Bob Stuart and Murray Dickson

Bob Stuart and news from Murray Dickson  I suspect it is from late 1981 when Bob was on breakfast and 96FM only played one 60sec commercial in a break.  We went to traditional cluster spots on Jan 1 1982.

Thanks to Michael Dalton for this pearler, btw this is part one 2.77MB

special significance owing to the events of this week, looks like we’ve lost another Australian Rock Radio  Icon as KIIS explodes across this wide brown land, sorry if that brings on connotations, damn fine radio station is 96FM96FM Sky

Thanks to Andrew Host for this audio, from a 1981 presentation tape that was used by the sales team, there’s more 2SM jocks on the way soon

note the use of vocoders and a very hyped style, must have been prior to Marleys passing

Stereo 104 2 Day FM jingles 1981

An original jingle from the era of Willesee, Laws, Kennedy, actually Graham Kennedy did a 3 hour Sunday morning gig that was  really entertaining.

this radio station had a phenomenal number of segues and jingles made in the early 80’s Mike Perjanik (Home and Away and numerous TV themes) scored a lot of early jingles for 2Day FM2DAY FM 1981 copy copy

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.
