Ray Hadley’s glasses 2GB’s daylight saving reminder

An email to 2GB’s C Team

G’day C Team.

Just on the subject of the talking clock. George doesn’t always tick over properly at the time when daylight saving starts or ends. I sat up one night a few years ago and listened to George as daylight saving ended and he didn’t change to the correct hour. The next morning he was engaged for an hour or so while Telstra wound him back a bit.

I hope you guys get to enjoy the extra hour of sleep.

They think it’s a bit sad that I’d sit up for changes in the talking clock. They’re probably right.

On that note, I’ve been thinking for some time of doing an hour as a talking clock myself just to see if I’d last. It might be worth a shot on Tuesday afternoon if I don’t get distracted by other things. If and when I do it, I’ll stream it live for the fun of it.

Videos of the talking clock have previously been posted here.

    I had a lot of fun listening to the show Trevor 🙂

    It was funny that the subject of the talking clock came up in a way, as I heard the talking clock in the clever little reminder about the end of daylight saving which played during the 5pm hour of Jason’s show, and had been thinking about the talking clock a bit since then.

    I hope you do all come back soon. That was great fun.
