Airchecks Update 19/11/2021

To start things off this week a bit of an update in terms of broadcast dates from previous updates with much thanks and

appreciation to:

Wayne Mac informs us the Dave D Whitcomb aircheck in last week’s update is 1984, with the 6KY Ron O’Neill and Eion Cameron airchecks are from 1985. Thanks heaps Wayne!

SydneyCityTV informs us that same Dave D aircheck is February 21st 1986 – so we’ll keep both dates filed. Sydney also informs us the 2WS aircheck featured in the October 1 update is also from February 21st 1986 but a little earlier in the afternoon. He also tells us that the Triple M and 2CH AM Stereo airchecks featured earlier this month is from June 24th 1984 for the Triple M cut, and June 23rd 1984 for the 2CH cut. Thanks maaaaaaate!

Trent Geddes says the 2AY tape featured in the November 5 update has also Frank Davidson in the first part, who had quite a long stint at 2AY before he moved to Warrnambool.

Also from this week onwards, we’ve increased the airchecks from 5 to 6 simply due to the amount of material we’d like to get through before Christmas lands. Enjoy!
