The Perils of Repeating Game Shows Radio Reviews for Ratings Period Two of 2007

Happy 72nd Birthday John Laws

August 8th, 2007 at 09:55am

Today is the 72nd birthday of John Laws, and most likely his last birthday as a radio broadcaster.

Interestingly he is absent today, and George Moore is filling in. One does have to wonder if George, as the regular fill-in presenter prior to Tim Webster being appointed as the regular fill-in for Laws, is being trialled in the timeslot. It would certainly explain why Tim Webster and George Moore are now seemingly taking turns at filling in for John Laws.

In somewhat unrelated news, congratulations to Stuart Bocking, John Gibbs and Greg Alexander. Stuart’s show, along with the final hour of Sports Today hosted by John Gibbs and Greg Alexander, recorded a rather impressive 2.7 point increase in ratings from 7.6% to 10.3% of the available audience. This also means that they have jumped from equal third to exclusive outright second.

    Isn’t it outright second, not exclusive?

    Yes it is, but I couldn’t think of the word at the time and came up with another one.

    Samuel, you’re probabaly too young to remember but back in the late 70’s, George Moore together with Mike Gibson were the number one morning programme in sydney on 2SM. They consistently beat Laws who was then at 2UW. 2UE might have him in mind with Paul.B.Kidd this time to give Hadley a run for his money on 2GB.

    Happy birthday, Lawsie.

    Those birthday wishes won’t cost you a thing, either! My gift to you.

    Wow, is Lawsie 72, dam he doesn’t look it.
    I should be so lucky to reach that age.
    Wonder what I’ll be doing at 72, probably trying to remember stuff I did about now.
    I might start writing it down.
