Google think I’m a penguin

I just performed a Google image search for “Samuel Gordon-Stewart” and found that they think I’m a penguin.
The one result is the following picture from the photo gallery.
The picture google thinks is me!

Book About Australian Radio History

Radio historian and former broadcaster/program director at numerous radio stations, Wayne Mac, is currently producing a book “on the life and times of Australian commercial radio” called Don’t Touch That Dial – Hits ‘n’ Memories of Australian Radio. Wayne’s book will probably only be available in a limited print run, but he has plenty of information on his website, www.waynemac.com.

So why am I telling you all this? Well, I have been rather excited about this book for a while, and it seems that a lot of people in the radio industry are too, and tonight we all have what will probably be a “once in a lifetime chance” to hear more about the book as Wayne will be appearing on Perth’s Radio 6PR to talk about his book, and I for one will be listening to the webstream (and if I remember, recording it).

He will be on 6PR at around 9PM perth time (GMT+8), last night the webstream wasn’t working, so let’s hope tonight is different, otherwise I might be making a phone call to Perth…

2UE On The Move

For those of you who don’t already know, Sydney radio station 2UE are moving to new all-digital studios in a new building.

The news that I am able to break to you right here is that the first show to come out of the new studios will be Saturday Night Live with Stuart Bocking at 9PM Sydney time, this coming Saturday (September 10), all programming from that point on will be coming from the new digital studios.

2UE were due to start broadcasting from the new studios early this week, but they pushed the date back so that all the staff could learn how to use the new equipment.

It has been said, although I am unable to confirm it, that John Laws’ office is twice the size of 2UE breakfast host Mike Carlton’s office, and that Mike isn’t overly pleased about that.

It is also said, and probably correctly said, that the John Laws studio will have a gold coloured desk with his signature on it, which should match his golden microphone quite well.

Apparently 2UE own this building at 170 Pacific Highway, Greenwich, which has a Dick Smith Electronics store in it (Think Tandy/Radio Shack style store). I suppose if the techs ever need to fix anything they can pop downstairs and grab a bit of solder!

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

This week the winner of my Musician Of The Week award is Donovan Philips Leitch, usually know as “Donovan”. The song I have chosen is Candy Man, so here it is.

Candy man, he’s been and gone
My Candy man, he’s been and gone
My Candy man, he’s been and gone.
Now I love everything in this Godalmighty world
God knows I do.
Peppermint stick got a little brass band
I got a peppermint stick I got a little brass band
I got a peppermint stick I got a little brass band
And I’m goin’ down to the gate to score the Candy man stand.
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
‘Cause I love everything in this Godalmighty world
God knows I do.
Candy man, he’s been and gone
My Candy man and his name was John
My Candy man he’s Morocco bound
Now I’d give everything in this Godalmighty world
To bring my Candy man home.
Black skin man give me some bad brew
Oh black skin man give me some bad brew
Oh black skin man give me some bad brew
Now I’d give everything in this Godalmighty world
To bring me my Candy man home.
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
Run fetch a pitcher get the baby some beer
‘Cause I love everything in this Godalmighty world
God knows I do.
Candy man, I love the man,
Yeah the Candy man, he gets me high
My Candy man, yeah I love the man,
And I’d give everything in this Godalmighty world
To bring my Candy man home.
