At the request of another radio announcer here’s list number 1, already created quite a stir there’s heaps who missed out fitting in and it’s not a contest these are just people that are familiar and perhaps it appears subjective, that was not intended just the way it turned out and I might add a lot of thought went into this list

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
