It seems we have quite a few corrections to make from our latest airchecks update dated 04/02/2022 – my thanks to SydneyCityTV for coming through with these.

* The 2UE/John Pearce audio is actually from Thursday June 18th 1981
* The 2AY tape with the March 1988 broadcast date is actually Friday January 11th 1985
* 2AY November 1982 is really Monday September 26th 1983

Two updates and one interesting correction to make from the Airchecks Update of 28/01/2022:

* 2UW with Andy Reid: Now added Monday June 12th 1978 as it’s tx date
* 2OO with Dave Rogerson: Now added Tuesday December 4th 1979 as it’s tx date
* 2AY with Rebecca Gorman from Sunday 3rd January 1985 **has actually been recorded over** – the audio is actually Steve Mummery from Wednesday February 13th 1985!

**EDIT 3/2/22 7.54pm**
We have now setup and installed a great video player for this site and the videos will return tomorrow morning, February 4th at 12.02am AEDST, a minute after the airchecks go online at 12.01am AEDST. Thanks for your patience!

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately we’ve hit a snag. Our video hosting provider, Vimeo, has decided to remove our account for, and I quote:

Reason: We do not permit accounts that upload rips of movies, music, television, viral videos, or any other content that the users did not create.

So these will remain offline until we sort out a decent wordpress video player for this site, and once we do, we’ll be reuploading them locally. Sorry gang. The airchecks are unaffected and will be online as usual tomorrow morning, February 4th at 12.01am AEDST.
