George Gibson gone from 2UE Sunday on 2CC

2CC On Saturday

November 12th, 2005 at 05:16pm

Oh boy, just when I thought some sanity had returned to my life, 2UE pull some strange changes out of a hat and make my 2CC listening odd.

It started when I turned on the radio this morning at around 12:30am before going to bed and noticed Stuart Bocking, after a bit of research I have discovered George is gone and Stuart has taken over the show (eek!). I reported back in June that Stuart was moving to middawns and leaving Lawsie’s show, which seems to have come true. Stuart only seems to be doing racing tips once a week for Lawsie now, which is a large pity in my view, he was always a welcome and fun addition to Lawsie’s show when he entered the studio out of the blue.

Thankfully 2CC haven’t lost their minds, and Weekend Magazine was back today, with Mike Frame running a mostly snappy and entertaining show, well done Mike! Thankfully Weekend Magazine is on 2CC to save us from Sydney realty and gardening.

As previously reported, Mike frame also ran the Trading Post and the Saturday morning show which used to be the domain of Kane Bond, who has left 2CC.

Glenn Wheeler (Apoligies for spelling his name with one N previously) seems to have settled in to his afternoon show and was pretty good today, although he (presumably at 2UE’s discretion) has launched a 5:30-6PM trading post…ye gods, this brings that dreaded program format repetition back to 2CC…saved from Sydney gardening…driven nuts by Sydney Buying, Swapping and Selling. 2UE management are collectively insane if they think getting listeners from Canberra, Sydney and wherever else Glenn is heard to all ring in and try and sell stuff to each other…yes 2UE, everyone wants to drive for three hours or more just to buy a table…

I suppose this means that I think 2CC should move local programming to the afternoon to avoid loony 2UE segments…but I doubt they will.

    What’s the point of us ( in Canberra ) having to listen to a Trading Post in Sydney ? We had OUR trading post on 2CC this morning ! I hope they have second thoughts about this Sydney trading post business !

    I get the distinct impression that 2UE management did not think about the schedule changes very hard, and are now trying to make it work by having more changes and odd segments.

    On the plus side, Glenn Wheeler’s segment with Monica Trapega has been quite successful…who would have thought a segment about cleaning stains would be so much fun. I think her subject changes each week as well!

    Apparantely Monica Trapaga was a Play School presenter .

    Yes, Play School, Better Homes & Gardens (I’m sure she did a craft segment on that show), controversial ads for Coco Pops, and the list goes on.
