I've had a look at the other thread on here, and from the moment the first
virus alert was posted, I thought...."Let's give these guys a virus free
recording"

So here they are... 3 in total, small in size but big in time.

http://www.surfnetvictoria.com/radio/MagicTo3AW_693.mp3
This first one has Andrew and Anne signing off for Magic 693, with the last
song and jingle included. Then the Breaky team at 3AW coming in. Recording
time: 10 minutes 13 seconds, Size: 4.09MB

http://www.surfnetvictoria.com/radio/3AW_693.mp3
This second recording is what happened after the first ad break on 3AW, talk
about the Fremantle v St. Kilda debarcle and a news update which has the
audio of 3AW going to 693. (this would have been heard by regionals taking
the 7:30am news) Recording Time: 9 minutes 45 seconds, Size: 3.90MB

http://www.surfnetvictoria.com/radio/3AWtoMagic_1278.mp3
This third recording has the last song 3AW puts on 1278, before the news
update, then the Magic 1278 welcome with Olivia Newton-John's (now famous)
song. With Andrew and Anne coming in to speak to Ric. Recording Time: 17
minutes 15 seconds, Size: 6.90MB

All recordings in 56kbps to save space

Enjoy

Ward would be most put out to be called Ric.....:) It went off without
a hitch. Judging by some of the feedback from all over the state, it
was well received.

What was interesting was the last song Magic 693 played was the very
song I played to mlaunch the station back in 1994. Perry Como - Magic
Moments. It was a significant thing to finish with.

Funny you should mention that I was thinking the same thing to myself
thinking of all the domestic and global events and they run with the footy
siren debacle as lead.Cant doubt the popularity and interest in it here in
Melbourne but about the only city you can get away with it in a sports mad
population

Thanks for recording that Robert.

Two miners are found alive after 5 days down a mine shaft, and what
gets most of the attention from morning talkback callers?

Yep... The full time debacle of the St Kilda/Freemantle match.

That's Melbourne radio!

No problem Samuel, and nice to see you posting more on here as well :)

I think everyone has liked what they've heard so far, and as I said on
previous threads, people seem to like audio downloads here of historic
events like this one (especially if they're nowhere near the reception area)

If it's any conciliation, one of the requests of the miners when found by
resuce workers, was footy scores

Apparently a few expletives followed when they were told the results

A fine effort Robert - the more copies and extras the merrier! Thanks
for your contribution.

You may have played it, but it was someone else who programmed it. ;)

At least it can be said that the owners of Magic/3AW have a sense of their
own history, which is certainly not true of a lot of other radio operators.

Does anybody still have a copy of the changeover audio Robert posted. I
only listened without saving it, and now it is gone from his site. If
anybody could email it to me I would be grateful.

You're right! Blimey that was quick. Leaving it up for at least a week or
so might have been good :)
