Bob Francis signs off for the last time

FIVEaa’s Bob Francis finished his last ever shift this evening after 57 years in radio.

The controversial Adelaide talk jock began his career as a music announcer in the early days of top 40 radio, and moved to talk when times and formats changed.

Known for his outspoken language and opinions, Francis has had many run ins with the regulator and listeners, including various ACMA code breaches.

In 2006 he was found guilty of contempt of court.

On his 50th radio anniversary we profiled him here. There are many more references to Bob’s career on radioinfo over the years.

Listen to audio from his last show here.

Tim Ginever produced one of his classic tunes for Bob Francis farewell function before his last shift at FIVEaa.
