I remember when the Awesome 80s was an hour between 6-7pm on Triple M Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne - this was back in the 2006-2009 days and it was an hour of 80s music between the drive show and the evening show.
The Homegrown show hosted by Matty O each weeknight at 22:00 is my favourite show on MMM. Great music from old to new.
some of the new stuff is cringe though
Continuing the convo from the latest Metro Ratings category re: Triple M Perth breakfast…
If SCA were to launch Triple M Perth today with its current format, who would you suggest they had put at breakfast “from the get-go”?
I reckon they should’ve utilised more of the successful Mix94.5 talent. Maybe move some of the Mix talent over to Triple M?
Poach Nathan, Nat and Shaun from Nova.
Alternatively, invest in young talent from the now non-existent SCA regional pipeline
Now THAT would’ve been big. But what’s the bet the audience still would not have followed.
Basil’s former 6PR audience didn’t seem to come across.
Totally different format… Kind of a bit like if Ray Hadley went from 2GB to Triple M Sydney, i think his listeners would stay with 2GB too.
A curious ‘Top 9 at 9’ tonight on ‘Nights With Dave Gleeson’.
It was ‘The Top Selling Vinyl Albums Of All Time’.
At # 8 was The Bee Gees - Saturday Night Fever. But they said ‘Oh we’re not allowed to play the Bee Gees on Triple M’ (even though I’m sure their regionals do). So they played the Dee Gees (which had the late Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters in it) version of ‘You Should Be Dancing’ instead. Which was only slightly less disco-y than the original Bee Gees version.
But then at # 2 and # 1 respectively were Meatloaf and Michael Jackson.
And they played both ‘Bat Out of Hell’ and ‘Thriller’ title tracks in full.
Neither artist normally gets much airplay on the metro Triple Ms (certainly not Michael Jackson anyway).
Seems very curious to say they won’t play the Bee Gees but then play Michael Jackson.
Meatloaf still gets played on metro Triple M’s, mainly “You Took The Words Right Out of my Mouth”
With the very sad news of the passing of Mike Drayson, I wonder what Triple M Perth will do with its station imaging?
Mike gave that station (and others) an extremely ballsy sound. He will be missed.
Very sad to hear about the passing of Doug Mulray.
Oh my, that is VERY sad news… he was pivotal to the success of 2MMM back in the late 80s/early 90s… he was as important to them as Kyle/Jackie O are now to the success of KIIS.
Source? It’s not on the news
Duncan Campbell has shared this on Instagram:
Did someone play ‘I’m A Punk’ on commercial radio?
It was played on Braidwood FM this morning. Very sad news.
What about ‘You Are Soul’?
Frankster has uploaded a bunch of Mulray stuff:
"You are Soul"was played in full just after 6am this morning on 2MMM
Yep, it reached #34 on the charts.
