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

From Feb 2011 The Top 1000 classic rock countdown, will never forget this one because I rang Alex Dean, they played Robbie Williams as part of this countdown and that wasn’t the only misplaced track, but as a whole a great effort with some top notch imaging from the media militia, Steve Britten and Bob Peters

Love it when you find something you knew you had, this was transferred from a cassette about 5 years ago, from memory this timeframe was not long after new management were in control, (Hoyts Media) also when the front wall came to life see pic below

2NX Jingles Rock -On

2NX Jingles Rock -On

It is unknown who sang the early 70’s 2NX version of the 2SM network jingles.  They were more end of break jingles rather than between songs.  The NX call sign was a pain because if you dropped the music in too tight the X was cut off in the mix.  Most of the jingles came out as 2N-ek.  The X’sss was lost because of the action of the excessive compression / limiter settings common for AM radio.

thanks again to Michael Dalton, for this info

96FM Rod and The Flack 2007

96FM Rod and The Flack 2007

Here’s a flashback to 2007 starting the 96 workday with Rod and the Flack, the start of this has a great Governator impression, about a year later the guy’s headed East to Star 104.5 where they successfully took their brand of humour into the vast Central Coast, triple station market.

BTW, check back soon there’s more from the 2007 line-up coming this week
