LET IT BE BEATLES PROGRAM CELEBRATES 19 YEARS ON AIR Posted: Mon 26th Sep 2011 - 20:09

In 1992 at the close of the football season, Stereo 974 announcer John Shorten was looking for something to occupy his time slot during the off season.

He thought a Beatles program would be great and he approached fellow announcer and Beatle collector Graeme Dickenson to see if together they could create an enjoyable program on the Fab Four. The program was christened Let It Be Beatles.

At the commencement of the next football season Shorton's program returned to his normal format and Let It Be Beatles continued in a new time slot.

Here started a day by day history of the Beatles in the studio featuring Interviews, live recordings, out-takes, demos and completed product.

Over the years Let It Be Beatles has featured exclusive interviews with George Harrison and George Martin as well as speaking with Beatle photographers, Jurgen Volmer, Astrid Kircherr and Robert Whitaker and many other associated personalities including Molly Meldrum, Kenn Brodziak, and Australian artists from the time including Russell Morris, Jim
Keays and Ross D. Wylie.

Over the year the program has had 16 co-hosts helping Graeme continue the Beatles Message.

Tonight Let It Be Beatles celebrates it's 19th year on air.

Tune in and see what is happening in the world of the Beatles.
A world that never fails to intrigue. You can catch it at 10pm on STEREO 974.

OLDER DRIVERS DAY Posted: Thu 8th Sep 2011 - 12:09

Despite the bad press they get from time to time, senior drivers are involved in less crashes than younger drivers.

But we can be even safer by checking out ourselves and our cars; by keeping up-to-date with changes in road law; by having regular health checks and by knowing the effects our medicines can have.

Senior drivers can get a head start on all these issues at the Senior Drivers' Expo to be held in Hoppers Crossing on Saturday the 29 OCTOBER.

It's not often that you get to chat with Traffic Police and VicRoads Roadworthy Inspectors and to learn about your health and medicines in a completely confidential environment. And, best of all, it's completely free. Even lunch is free!

Limited spaces are available for the Senior Driver's Expo. Telephone Leigh on 9315 9464 to make a booking.

The Older Driver Expo is proudly brought to you by RoadSafe Westgate Community Road Safety Council and the Councils of Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong and Wyndham.

That phone number for bookings is 9315 9464

MEDIA RELEASE - RADIO STATIONS BECOME NEW EMERGENCY BROADCASTERS Posted: Thu 14th Oct 2010 - 08:10

Media release

From the Minister for Emergency Services

Two more community radio stations have become official emergency broadcasters in time for the bushfire season, Minister for Emergency Services Bob Cameron announced today.

Visiting Stereo 974 FM in Brooklyn and Plenty Valley FM today, Mr Cameron said the stations will become emergency broadcasters in a further bid to boost emergency messaging to communities in times of need.

Mr Cameron said the agreements are similar to the MOUs in place between the emergency services, community broadcaster UGFM – Radio Murrinidindi, commercial radio networks, ABC local radio and Sky News TV.

"Stereo 974 FM and Plenty Valley FM are both committed to providing official emergency information to all communities in their areas, no matter the emergency, and the Brumby Labor Government is proud to partner with them in having this historic MOU signed," Mr Cameron said.

"Both stations have a strong history of serving their respective communities and our Government is proud to have worked with the local communities to harness the great local work they do to help keep the community safer.

Mr Cameron said while all radio stations have access to emergency information, under the new agreement, Stereo 974 FM and Plenty Valley FM will break into programming to broadcast emergency warnings at the request of the emergency services, and move to continuous coverage in some circumstances.

Stereo 974 FM broadcasts on 97.4 FM to the western suburbs of Melbourne, including Brooklyn, Sunshine, Braybrook, and Footscray, while Plenty Valley FM transmits on 88.6 FM to high fire risk areas in the Nillumbik Shire Council and City of Whittlesea, including Eltham, North Warrandyte and areas of the Kinglake Ranges.

The Office of the Emergency Services Commissioner has invited all community broadcasters in Victoria to enter into emergency broadcasting MOUs, subject to their capabilities.

Acting Emergency Services Commissioner Joe Buffone said both stations will play a significant role in assisting the emergency services to alert local communities.

"Stereo 974 FM and Plenty Valley FM will assist their local areas by broadcasting local emergency warnings to the community as quickly as possible," Mr Buffone said.

"Local information is critical to saving lives and during this Fire Action Week a week we are dedicated to educating Victorians about how to prepare, act and survive during a fire."
