FM104TripleM Rocks Greatest hits imaging from 1995

This is a quick sample of imaging from Brisbanes FM104Triple M in 1995 Phil Moroney was the station voice and voice of Nine Queensland, this was part of an on-air campaign to entice listeners away from 4KQ who were the “Latest Memories, Greatest Hits” station with Bob Gallagher as PD and yours truly on the overnight and some weekend gigs, and btw 6 hours is a marathon shift, but Monday mornings were awesome with Laurel and Kim on brekky and John Knox as my newsreading mentor, now there’s a thought, why did I not go into news.

I just love how at any given time John Knox can still be heard every TOH with the “4KQ693AM News” news intro, rack up some TSL’s and you’ll hear Phil with more classic imaging
