Happy Birthday 2CA

It’s 2CA’s 75th Birthday, and they are holding an outside broadcast (and breakfast) from their original location on Giles Street in Kingston until 9am this morning…plenty of fun, prizes and interesting people…I’m about to head down there, and more details can be found in Samuel’s Persiflage #10.

Samuel’s Persiflage #10

This month’s Persiflage Puzzle has four words of five, three, seven and four letters respectively. The clue is “The sisters credited with writing the most popular song in the English language”.

It’s the 75th birthday of Canberra’s oldest radio station, 1053 2CA, and as such I chat with 2CA breakfast co-host Paul Blunt about the birthday and the celebrations which are taking place, including an Outside Broadcast from the location of their first studio on Giles Street Kingston.

Also on the agenda this month is a chat with radio historian Wayne Mac about 2CA’s birthday, Wayne’s Book, and the rather excessive number of significant radio birthdays this year.

There is some listeners feedback…some of it quite amusing.

All listeners are invited to send in more feedback, both in written and audio format. As per usual feedback can be sent to (text, MP3, Wave or Ogg Vorbis), spoken feedback by clicking here or on the button below would be great, or leave a comment below.

There are various highlights of Samuel’s appearances on 2CA scattered throughout the episode, as well as all the other regular features.

The Samuel’s Persiflage #10 file itself is available here, and is 1:11:28 in length (65.4MB) at 128kbps stereo. The 128kbps format was decided upon because it produces a very good sound quality, and doesn’t “flatten” any music used in the podcast. I do, however, acknowledge that this is just unreasonable for dial-up, so a 16kbps mono file is also available here. The sound quality isn’t as good, but some people like it. The low quality version is 8.17MB

For those of you who are using podcast software to receive your podcasts, the feed can be found here and if you are using iTunes you can subscribe to Samuel’s Persiflage by clicking here.
