His insights are in the video below ....


ARIA charts turn 30

It was this day back in 1983 that ARIA released its very first chart.

In that first list of the best songs and albums of the week we saw Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Total Eclipse Of The Heart’ as the #1 single and Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ as the #1 album.

ARIA have published a whole bunch of stats to celebrate the occasion.

ARIA Chairman Denis Handlin AM, who was one of the leading board members who started the Chart in 1983, said:

Ray Hadley sued over alleged abuse

2GB's Ray Hadley is being sued over allegedly bullying the stations digital content manager, Richard Palmer (pictured).

Palmer is being represented by the high-profile Sydney media lawyer John Laxon, and the lawsuit has been filed against Hadley himself rather than 2GB.

A statement of claim has been lodged in the District Court of NSW, alleging that Hadley deliberately inflicted psychological harm on Palmer.

The brave on-air confession

Relative newcomer to radio, Becs Lee (left), is a regular on K-Rock's Departure Lounge in Geelong alongside Aiden G and station PD Leigh Kuhlmann.

Lee sent us this audio from the show on Friday that shows her very brave confession that apparently led to some very emotional calls from listeners.

She believes this break goes some way to disproving Ros Reines' assertion that female FM announcers are just 'ditzy foils to men.' (see our previous story about Reines' comments here).
