I’ve managed to leave my radio at home so there’s no 2CC for me this morning, as such I decided to take the opportunity to see who the summer fill-in presenters are on various talkback stations. I already knew John Stanley is 2UE’s breakfast fill-in, but I decided to see if Alan Jones has taken leave. He has, and Jason Morrison is filling in for him. I haven’t listened to Jason present a show before, and I have to say that I am impressed.
I sent the following email to Jason Morrison a short time ago.
Good morning Jason and welcome to Summer/Christmas Breakfast.
Just listening to your comments about shop awnings, and it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if these things are never checked.
It’s a bit like balconies on apartment buildings. Seven people in Sydney and seven people in Melbourne were injured on the weekend because of balconies collapsing. They were probably a bit overloaded, but if a balcony can’t hold seven people (probably about half a tonne) then is it really a safe balcony?
Same thing with those awnings, if they can’t hold the amount of water that fits on them, then they aren’t safe. And by the looks of some of the awnings on Nine News on Friday, there are an awful lot of unsafe awnings.
Somebody has to check these things, and I think it’s the responsibility of the building owner.
Have a great morning Jason,
(Listening via 2gb.com)
