Pure radio marketing genius

One from the Vault. It's from the US, it's a studio tour from 1991 - now this is marketing genius.

Marvel at the innovations - like recording Cd's to Carts - Winning!

A Production Director wearing a Tie -  Winning!

And these guys clicked into this whole multi-tasking thing way ahead of us - a  PD  that is also the MD - we can feel that bottom line humming - Winning!

And  our favourite - every station needs a mascot, every station needs "Billy the Back to Back Bear" - at this point honestly, the minds boggles - but more Winning!

Shocker!

Steve Vizard's Tonight Live / Austereo simulcast

In 1990, Steve Vizard's Tonight Live did a simulcast show that aired on the Australian Television network and the Today network.

2Day FM, Fox FM, B105, SAFM, The Eagle and FM104.7 were the stations that took the broadcast and the show featured live crosses to personalities at each station.

While Mike Perso (now smooth Melbourne breakfast) sat next to Vizard in the 'studio', other radio people included Rob McCasker (B105), Mike Hammond (2Day) and Grubby & Dee Dee (Fox).
