Vale Allen Brandt

Tuesday 26 November, 2019

Allen Brandt passed away on the weekend, just shy of his 100th birthday.
An intensely private man, Allen headed the Colour Radio Network and, along with Sir Frank Moore and Sir William Allen, was responsible for turning Ipswich regional station 4IP into an incredibly successful Brisbane Metro Station.
Ian Holland says, "(His) contribution to broadcasting can’t be understated, and among those who came out of the Brandt Stable were David White, Wayne Roberts, Ronnie Sparx to name a few. 
"Allen Brandt was regarded as highly as Lewis Bennett and Rod Muir in the late sixties and through the 70’s."

His funeral will be this Friday December 6th at 11am at St.Clement's On The Hill Anglican Church at Eudunda Street, Stafford.

Apart from his significant achievements in Brisbane radio, Allen Brandt also held the Australian licence for Community Club Awards, with quite a few regional stations benefiting financially from his expertise through those franchises.
While I was the General Sales Manager at 2KA in Penrith from 1988 to 1992, we introduced Community Club Awards, with significant impact on our bottom line.
I remember Allen and his wife Margaret fondly from the era.
