This week’s episode of The Adelaide Show, Greg Clark plays all the hits, takes us behind the scenes of radio and advertising in SA.

Greg Clark is a radio, TV, and advertising legend in South Australia. He’ll be remembered by many as one of the hot jocks of the 80s, spinning discs and taking requests on radio, as well as venturing into various TV shows that married current radio stars with music and chatter. Since then, he forged a career voicing and producing commercials.

This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is a wine from Fox Creek Wines.

In IS IT NEWS, Nigel challenges us on stories about radio.

In 100 Weeks Ago, we take you back to episode 152 when we sat withAdelaide’s Go Getter Gals, Caitlin Harvey and Chloe Reschke-Maguire.

And in the musical pilgrimage … we have a song from Ella Ion.

01:27:48 Is It News?
Nigel Dobson-Keeffe challenges the panel to pick the fake story from three stories from South Australia’s past.

The Advertiser October 1934
More Radio Advertising on Sundays
B class broadcasting stations have been allowed to increase the volume of advertising in Sunday programmes, following suggestions by the former Post master-General (Mr. Parkhill), it was learned today. The Advertiser stations—5 AD-PI —have always allowed some advertising to be broadcast on Sundays unlike most of the interstate stations!

The News September 1923
Adelaide Radio Company
Strong faith in the commercial possibilities of wireless brought the Adelaide Radio Com Dany into being. The directors of the company were really the pioneers of the wireless movement in South Australia, and were largely responsible for the formation of the radio Society in Adelaide, which is doing a great deal to promote the interests of wireless in this State. In view of the long, practical experience and faith of the directors of Adelaide Radio Co., Ltd., there should be no difficulty in obtaining the whole of the additional capital required by the company. The abridged prospectus of
an issue by the company of 12,000 ordinary shares of £1 each is published in another column.

The Chronicle January 1949
RADIO FIRE WARNINGS
Throughout the summer fire hazard forecasts will be included in the daily weather forecasts from all South Australian broadcasting stations, states the Deputy Director of the Weather Bureau (Mr. H. E. Banfield). Degrees of hazard will be described as nil, low, moderate, high, very high and extreme. The meaning of these terms ls as follows: —
Nil.— Generally safe from man caused fires. Lightning fires may start and fires already burning may not go right out, but will not spread.
Low.— Fires spread slowly from slash-piles, camp fires and other large heat sources, but are quite easily controlled.
Moderate. — Fires often start from matches and tend to spread more rapidly as they increase in size. Control is usually not difficult if action is prompt.
High. — Fires start readily from matches and may start from glowing embers or cigarette butts. Rate of spread is rapid and control difficult.
Very High. — Fires may start from small sparks and are dangerous. Prompt action required.
Extreme. — Most dangerous — “Blow Up Day”.
