5.30am Monday July 8th, 96FM brought the inimitable Freddy Botica back to the Perth Airwaves with his partner in crime Lisa Shaw. If this sample is anything to go by these 2 will be championing the start of an exciting new era for Perths Iconic 1st Commercial FM.
Recorded on an old stereo boombox back when some folks still had analog technology note the static in some parts.
Alex Flack is also heard on the promo 3:01 for the then breakfast duo David and Tanya, Flack was EP now he is at Adelaide Triple M and Jacqui is at Triple M Sydney

Uploaded by Andrew Kilpatrick, once again in an effort to preserve Classic Rock Radio airchecks here is some breaks from a scoped aircheck

Flashback to 1985 Muswellbrook local radio station 2NM and Don Dawkins,
this also features Frank Fursey on some imaging.3:30
Back in the day 2NM was sister station to Newcastles rock powerhouse
Thanks to Greg Henry for this aircheck, he tells me he recorded this on
an old tape deck at a farm at Bogabri
This is an original aircheck from Phil Moroney himself, 1 of 3 they were actually used by Bill Riner to review and critique performance, The Noosa Aussie Hop gig mentioned continued annually as I have featured one of the 1985 Rock Patches, FM 104 indeed hosted some of the most memorable Australian rock concerts through the 80’s
“It’s your old mate BBQ Bob Gallagher” his signature FM 104 style not only was it great to be on the same announcing team back in the 80’s but then i get a doubleshot of classic rock er’ Greatest Memories, Latest Hits in the latter case, and what a mouthful glad they shortened it to Classic Hits.
Thanks to Bob Gallagher himself for kindly sending these airchecks to me on cassette, it has been a pleasure putting these together as I hope many people enjoy hearing one of Australias finest radio PD/Announcer and all round top bloke, hehe, oh and Laurel and Gary are great too no wonder this gets another “Legends on the Mic” showcase
