Quite a few close radio friends have heard my 'gem' a number of times BUT for those who haven't, here's the scaled down version which is 100% TRUE.....I was on-air one Saturday morning in the late 90's anchoring the then 6 hour Leisure & Pleasure Programme on the former 5DN here in Adelaide. During an ad break in the 2 hour Gardening Show (featuring studio experts + guests) I decided to also include the latest golf update from the US which featured a number of Aussies. I pre-read the piece off-air first, noting American golfer Fred Funk (caution !) was playing. Anyhow, at the appropriate time I segued to the latest from Augusta, Georgia and passed the Fred Funk part with flying colours, only to stuff up the final sentence by stating a particular Aussie golfer "had missed the c...", I meant to say 'cut'. My studio friends (male & female) literally fell off their seats, my heart started pounding not believing what I had just said, my producer almost wet herself AND I was later told by those witnessing the event, they have NEVER seen anybody react so quickly. Yes folks, under a massive pile of papers scattered over the old 5DN Paul Kirk board, I found the DUMP button in 3 seconds flat and my blooper NEVER went to air across Adelaide. If only the listeners knew and I guess IF you were one of them on that particular Saturday morning, I've just let you in on my classic slip of the tongue episode !

Quiet simple really, turn triple j into the same as Radio 2 from the UK not rocket science really!!! By the way Radio 2 makes great listening on the net as the BBC stream is such good quality, especially love Janice Long!!! ABC looks to BBC Radio for larger slice of audience

There is only ONE Classic Rock station in Melbourne, 91.5 How Classic is Triple M?

Ahhh Byrnesy , remember all those years ago you really wanted to be a rock jock ????? but stayed with news , looks like you made the right choice , and guess what , they still love me out there !!!!!! Greg Byrnes resigns from 2UE

Greg is a great example of how loyalty in radio pays off. He started at 2UE as a junior news reporter and rose up through the ranks - senior editor, news director, programme director. A rare story in metro radio. Hard work and loyalty .. and he stayed a good bloke through-out! Well done mate. Greg Byrnes resigns from 2UE

Unfortunate that these two individuals have done something illegal and will potentially get in to quite a lot of trouble, but I'd be interested to hear why they left the station in the first place. Also, interesting to note the similarities between the Grant Broadcaster operated stations of the South Coast's imaging and branding, and the imaging and branding of this internet commercial broadcaster.

(Correction to your story - the station is most certainly not a community station, nor in a category I would say is progressive, unless you say typical CHR stations are progressive.)
Dumb and Dumber caught hacking in to radio station

Ridge Radio is an online radio station and does not have a community licence and/or an AM/FM transmission. Dumb and Dumber caught hacking in to radio station

I've really enjoyed Vizard this morning, some interesting people (imagine his black book!) and Price had a good morning with Aker and Sam.

I'm glad they've used the 2GB jingle pack on MTR, sounds tight. No-one can throw stones at them for that, everyone does it!

So far, so good. Interesting to see how Martin King will go.
MTR heavy on outrage, light on ads - for now

I disagree with the claims that it won't last 6 months. I think there will be some lineup changes, but i think it will work. Possibly not as good as 3AW because their listners are quite loyal. 3AW will loose a small percent, but nothing to majorly impact them MTR heavy on outrage, light on ads - for now

Jag3146, whoever you are, you are wrong. And you don't know what you are talking about. Ash Long is not a servant of 3AW. I, in fact, pay THEM, to air our weekly Melbourne Observer commercial spots. The new radio station is not in competition with our newspaper. I am not scared of a new radio network in town, I welcome it. MTR heavy on outrage, light on ads - for now
