Doesn’t the dude have a crew or couch? You need a crew. Or Donald Sutherland shooting some roos. Putting the yikes back into Wundowie. By Vegan.

    So you think RadioWest can round up more than one semi-articulate Northam resident?

    A bloke with a head like a robbers dog, and he’s asking people to wake up with him??
    You just got the annual award for the most appropriate title for a pic.
    Any babe who drove past and saw that head, and imagined herself waking up alongside him, would be double-checking every single thing she drank, from that point on.
    Even multiple hours of beer goggles and cocktail leg-openers couldn’t help him.

    I used to be subjected to Radio West in a past life. They only had one CD. It was a Phil Collins. But for some reason they could only play one track from it. ” In the air tonight” . Ah, but that takes me back.

      Ha ha ha! Talk about flashbacks! In a previous life when I worked in the SE Wheatbelt in the 1960’s and 1970’s – and we only had AM radios with cute call signs like 6NA, 6WB and 6TZ – and radio stations played vinyl records – I used to able to only get 6NA on the radio in the EH ute (apart from the ABC).
      There was just one little problem with 6NA – they had only one “stand-in” record – and it was “Volare” by Dean Martin.
      Any time things got slow – out came, “Volare”.
      God, its still ringing in my head now, after only hearing it 357,466 times!!
      However. 6NA did do that gravel-voiced, John Doremus, and his “Passing Parade” – a fascinating 3 min listen, if there ever was one.
      John Doremus’ voice still rings in my ears, too (cue raspy deep voice) …
      “Our time is up! .. ’til we meet again, for another chapter in the Passing Parade .. this is John Doremus .. as always, thank you so much! …. and good-bye for now! ..”
      Sadly, John Doremus died in his early 60’s after suffering from Alzheimers for quite a number of years.
      He was not only a well-known DJ, but he was also the first to install in-flight entertainment (in the form of taped music) on aircraft (1964, I believe).
