EON FM Steve Chandler 1987 Scoped 001

EON FM Steve Chandler 1987 Scoped 001

This aircheck from Marc Mc Creadie must have been recorded after the Rod Muir addition which not long after had EON change to the Triple M branding, note the new “Triple Your Music” imaging, and the Frequency in the ID dropped to just EON FM, Steve Chandler, sounds like David White, compliment I would think as he was another top jock and News professional from the original House of M’s eraEON logo 1990 copy

RA Aircheck – 2SM 3XY Tim Webster and Lee Simon Thanks for Listening

Here’s an excerpt from the History Channel Documentary “Thanks for Listening” The history of Australian Radio by Graham McNiece Productions, Tim is talking about an experience on the hotline with the then PD Rod Muir and gaps on-air, hilarious as every jock can relate to this scenario, being “chewed out ” as some radio peeps would often put it, and usually because the boss was in a bad mood no doubt he’d just had the same from his boss, also includes a quick check from 1420 3XY jock Lee Simon, very young as the photo shows3XY Lee Simon 70s

RA Aircheck -96 FM John Hood 1981

RA Aircheck -96 FM John Hood 1981

96FM s John Hood 1980 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.
