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.
|8||Roy & HG|
|7||Hughesy & Kate|
The Top 3 were challenging, and in the end I have gone for two teams at equal number two.
|2 (equal)||Hamish & Andy|
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.
