Vale Des Ford

Des Ford has died at age 83 on the Gold Coast.
Ash Long shared these details to Facebook on behalf of Des and his family:
“Des had worked at stations including 3AW and 5DN Adelaide, where he conducted the breakfast program.
At GTV-9, he filled technical roles, including Studio Manager for Jack Little’s World Championship Wrestling. He used to laugh that because studio time was so tight they often had to record the interviews with the winning wrestlers before the bouts were held.
In retirement years, Des filled senior roles at Golden Days Radio. He was a much respected and popular member of the Survivors showbiz veterans group.
‘So long’ to a good mate. Vale Des Ford.”
