Easier said than done. Nothing new here other than basic radio 101.

Might be easier said than done Eric, but that the fact is that it was done successfully by the DMG peeps so credit where its due. And \it changed plenty in terms of how the other networks , particularly Austereo, operated at the time. I should know, I was at Austereo then and whilst Nova didn’t kill us, they definitely hurt us and we had to change how we operated.

I think a certain Scott Muller deserves the credit for Nova Sydney.
He took it to Number One not Dean. Full credit to Scott.

First podcast I’ve ever listened to completely and enjoyed, well done Dean and Craig! I couldn’t agree more Tripe J is a real threat and opportunity for the commercial stations in Australia if only someone was brave enough to play in their sandpit like Nova back in the day!.
