Jim Mortimer - SAFM 35 year reunion Part 1

In September last year, a collection of some of the finest people and Australian radio minds celebrated the 35 year anniversary of SAFM as reported on Radio Today here

From all reports, the stories, the friendships, the crazy and creative antics, and the SAFM radio history flowed that night in September ... as it respectfully should have.

One story to emerge out of the evening was that a very clever and methodical production man had spent the best part of 2 decades collaborating air-checks and audio memorabilia and had painstakingly sorted through the boxes of archive tapes to produce a 3 part audio history of the station.

Bob Peters is one of the true gentlemen in our industry. His ‘tour of duty’ is not only impressive; it is confirmation of a very talented media broadcaster.

For me, Bob is one of the few people I wish I had worked with earlier in my career. His generosity, great attitude, and magnificent vocal pipes have been my pleasure to record, edit and re-flangelate in many promos and commercials in recent times.

It was a few years ago when I discovered Bob’s personal health battle that my respect and admiration for this man increased dramatically.

After recently reading a local newspaper story on Bob, I reached out and asked him politely if he would share some of his story with us.

Recently I was away in a regional town staying in a local motel. There was nothing out of the ordinary and special about this motel until the day I went to check out.
