In a discussion recently we got to thinking about those great radio stories, promos, ads, events from the past that are told repeatedly over one or ten drinks.
The historical elements of radio, particularly the more amusing aspects, are well worth recording. There are a number of websites that are setup to do this: radioantenna.com hosts old airchecks, the 3XY facebook page has nearly 300 members, there are no doubt more – let us know.
This new section of Radio Today is called 'The Vault' and it is dedicated to remembering, reminding or revealing some of the more interesting and amusing moments from the past. If you have something we should publish – let us know here.
We'll kick it off with a ripper that Greg Smith found in his office.
Below is a memo written, and signed, by the entire announcing team at 3XY Melbourne in 1974 to the General Manager arguing their collective case for a pay-rise. The letter is fantastic, with some big names signing it!
