B105 25th Anniversary Reunion

Staff Writer

It was an amazing day. February 26th 1990 at 3.40pm, the late Wayne Goss switched on B105 FM and the history of Brisbane radio changed forever. 

For those that were On-Air and part of the management team, it was potentially one of the most thrilling days of their careers.


B105 is holding a 25 year reunion party at The Paddington Hotel in Brisbane Saturday February 28th, 2015 from 6.30 PM to celebrate the conversion of 4BK to B105 FM.

Three of the original staff, Kylie Blucher, Donna Lynch and David Rymer have been planning the reunion and have created a Facebook Page to allow past and present members of the B105 team to book for the reunion.

They are also encouraging anyone to share photos and stories that can make up part of the presentation on the night. The more the merrier.

To be part of it, search B105 Twenty Five Year Reunion at Facebook or click here or you can simply book yourself here.

Numbers are limited and they hope to draw a range of people who passed through or still work at what is one of the greatest and most well run radio stations in the country.

Brad March said “I was lucky enough to be part of the team that launched B105. It was a truly amazing experience. It was in the right place at the right time and turned Brisbane radio listening on its ear within a survey. Being rewarded with 32% + ratings was a bonus, we made some great radio and had a lot of fun doing it." 

Radio Today will have more on one of the greatest FM launches in the country later. But for now, get in early as the organisers are looking forward to a night of incredible nostalgia, many great stories and a chance to be with some old radio buddies.

Some other names involved in B105’s launch include industry legends Paul Thompson and Greg Smith, GM Richard Barker (right with Jamie Dunn), Kyle Sandilands, SCA’s Craig Bruce, Resonate Owner Rex Morris, ESP’s Brian Ford, Waterfronts Sean Pickwell, 4BC’s Ian Skippen, Jamie Dunn  and of course Agro.
