One thing about Macca and the Hon Nick they always amused themselves.
Program Director John Torv did not sound so amused:, an entertaining ditty featuring the Hon Nick Jones on lead vocal.
From 1975 to 1982 Sydney radio station 2SM played an intrinsic role in my life. The jocks were my pals who got me through each day, and my visits to the station became more frequent as I got older.
It was surprising to me, when I started putting this section of my website together in 2002, that there was so little available on-line about the glory days of 2SM.
So if you are a former 2SM junkie like me, this is the place for you!!
Settle in for a long trip down memory lane and please be patient as the page downloads it's worth it! Wherever you see this little animation, it means there is a nifty 2SM promo, jingle or some other kind of snippet for the savouring.
Obviously not the cake Macca is pointing a lance at in this photo.
If you click on the pic of Macca and the Hon Nick (which rhymes, incidentally), you can hear a snippet of the broadcast from the north pylon of the Bridge on the day they paid the toll in 1977.
Of course Macca gave some focus to it on his show, as evidenced by a silly audio clip that you can hear if you click on the tower on the left.
It was a credit to Mac Rae that he stuck it out at 2SM as long as he did, finally leaving in April 1982, with a memorable last program, a copy of which I would dearly love.
If you do, hopefully the menu bar to the left will help guide you back to where you were.
There is quite a huge selection of audio in my archives, and I might even change some of the clips now and then. A 2SM day always started with the madcap Ian Mac Rae, the best and highest rating breakfast announcer of his day.
Depending on your browser, these clips might take you to a new page, but once you've finished listening, just hit the "back" button on your browser and it should return you to where you came from.
