Petrol Prices

Good evening again Stuart,

And just on the topic of petrol prices…well the petrol station across the road from my workplace here in Canberra has been full-to-overflowing since at least 4pm. Unleaded petrol there is 120.9 cents per litre. I suppose everyone is trying to refuel before the price rises later in the week in the lead-up to Easter.

Drug testing in Junior Sport

Good evening Stuart,

I think the idea of doing random drug tests in junior sport is a good idea…you probably wouldn't get many cheats until the older teens, but it might help instil in to the younger ones a fear of getting caught.

Also, just on the issue of the Golden Point in the NRL, it's an interesting concept, but I think it could be improved. I think it would be better if when the game goes to golden point, both teams get one competition point, and then the winner gets an extra point. If they can't sort it out after ten minutes it's a draw and nobody gets the extra point.

Oh, and I finally had a decent round of NRL tipping…5 from 8, pity about my 3 from 8 in the AFL!

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart

Farewell Kris McKenzie

Kris McKenzie, 2CC/2CA newsreader and 2CC fill-in host is leaving for Melbourne. Kris is among the best newsreaders the Capital Radio Network have had in recent years and I would be lying if I didn’t say he is one of the radio people I truly admire and have a great deal of respect for.

Kris will be sorely missed by his fans here in Canberra and surrounds, but I’m sure his move to Melbourne will be very successful, and I wish him all the best for the future.

I will have to check my archives for some audio of Kris’, but in the interim I do have a tiny sample of Kris from when he was reading the news prior to Mike Frame starting a show from Bunnings Belconnen. It’s one of the videos I haven’t yet moved to the Flash based video system, so you get to choose from four formats…MPEG4, Quicktime, Windows Media or Real Media.

Kris can be heard finishing off the weather before the voiceover. That being said, it’s about a second long so you might want to wait until I have a chance to find something more substantial.
