Just come across this article by Peter. I was one of the "3" - the panel operator- recording Relax with Me in the late 60's. Being a tad younger than Peter, I was brought up with mostly classical & pop music plus Goon humor.
Over many recording and live sessions with Arch, I gained an appreciation of Jazz that's remained with me to this day. He was a Gentleman and meticulous performer with the microphone. Vale, Arch.

Endorse every word from Ian Holland. Bruce was an exceptional man, a true leader who recognized talent and inspired those who worked with him to give their very best. Bruce Rogerson funeral today

I remember Bruce as very tall, very serious to our gang of reps - a couple of years before Good Music when 2CH with its Council of Churches aura was not topping it, but it was a real cheerful place to work. The local pub was known as Studio 4. The hallowed broadcasting studio in the old AWA building was gracious with chamois panels in the dark stained timber walls to absorb surrounding sound - until someone tarted them by painting them a sound bouncing gloss green. Hi-tech the old place wasn't, but it had a soul. Vale Bruce Rogerson

Nice one, Peter. On day one at my first commercial radio gig, my fellow jocks pointed towards ex-senior announcer who had been made Sales Manager. The rumour mill said the promotion was to reduce the turnover of announcers, who regularly left rather than put up with his bullying. As self-styled sporting supervisor, woe betide anyone who used studio B, because that was "his". I joke about being "fired for pissing off the chief engineer" (there's an irony for you) but this guy was a big part of it. What keeps bullies in business

I live in Belfield "as the crow flies" 6.51km from Sydney Olympic Park. I have been receiving "Show Radio" on 107.9MHz clearly for nearly 20 years.

While the 6.51 radius includes the suburbs of Merrylands, Dundas, North Ryde, Top Ryde, West Ryde, Gladesville, Drummoyne, Five Dock, Burwood and Strathfield, I can only comment that an excellent reception of "Show Radio" while listening near Victoria Road, Top Ryde. This is because it is in direct line of sight with Sydney Olympic Park.

My advice is to use a digital fm tuner because it is easier to tune to 107.9MHz than a cheap fm tuner which may be swamped by the signals from 2SER (107.3MHz) and 2GO (107.7).

Hope that helps people who want to listen to "Show Radio" on 107.9MHz.

Regards
Anthony of exciting Belfield

I worked with Ray Hadley and the continuous call crew as their OB tech in Brisbane from 88 to 92 and can't say I ever saw Ray as a bully in all that time. Enjoyed the gig and the only reason I stopped is I had to move overseas during the recession to get a full-time job. What keeps bullies in business

I did Bruce's radio school program back in the early 90's, all by cassette!!! Covered everything. So much information learned. A giant of the industry. Programming just got so much better on the other side. Vale Bruce Rogerson
