Top 30 FM stars of all time: Top 10

This week, following my 'great talent matters' article, I have been counting down my Top 30 FM stars of all-time in Australia. There have been some world standard talent on radio in this country. 

Any list of this nature will be subjective, and I welcome your thoughts on the list that I have put together. Criteria considered was this: individuals and teams who consistently delivered great radio content, have had longevity on the air, achieve high ratings and are unique and innovative. I also considered market size, shift, format and national coverage.

There were a few who narrowly missed the cut – honourable mentions go to Fred Botica, Barry Bissell, Amanda Blair, Dave Gibson, Tim Smith and John Vincent.

Just to recap, here are numbers 30 to 11:

30 Robyn Bailey 20 Marty Sheargold
29 Club Veg 19 Jono and Dano
28 Adam Hills 18 James Brayshaw
27 The Cage 17 Mick Molloy
26 Brigitte Duclos 16 Peter Moon
25 Grubby & Dee Dee 15 The D-Generation
24 Fifi Box 14 Eddie McGuire
23 Jamie Dunn 13 Merrick and Rosso
22 Tracy Bartram 12 The Grill Team (3MMM)
21 Ugly Phil 11 Richard Stubbs

So here we go – now for the Top 10.

10 Tony Martin
9 Andrew Denton
8 Roy & HG
7 Hughesy & Kate
6 Amanda Keller
5 Matt Tilley
4 Doug Mulray
3 Wendy Harmer

 

The Top 3 were challenging, and in the end I have gone for two teams at equal number two.

2 (equal) Hamish & Andy
2 (equal) Martin/Molloy

 

And on my list of the Top 30 FM commercial radio stars of all-time, the number one show is Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O.

 

What are your thoughts, is there anyone who I should have included, or any rankings you would change? Or anyone that you dont think should be there!

Would be great to hear your comments.

Soon on Radio Today I’ll list the most promising newcomers on FM radio.
