Yes, an Australian radio super god is celebrating 50 years in radio this year. This guy hosted the first episode of ABC TVs Countdown, which was the first live colour television show in Australian TV history.
He has won international and local radio awards and has one of the longest running nationally syndicated breakfast shows.
Not to mention being the voice of Sky Channel, the official voice of the Sydney 2000 Olympics and the Manly Sea Eagles ground announcer for over thirty years. GO MANLY!!
Here we are when Manly beat the Storm 40 nil in the 2008 grand final.
Dad taught me everything there is to know about radio and television, how to use a microphone, how to promote myself, how to sell promotional use only CD’s on E Bay.
I can honestly say I have never met anyone in the industry who always had such a positive attitude at all times.
One of the more fun jobs Ive had over the years was working in the studio next to him hosting the Gorilla radio breakfast show while dad was hosting his show in the studio next door.
He would pop in on my show and vice versa. All sorts of crazy shit would happen. Dad would just barge in while in the middle of a talk break, “whats going on here?” If digital radio took off in Australia I
would have stayed.
Yep he’s my dear old dad Grant Goldman, on radio every morning on 2SM from 5 till 9am and something you may not know. He also recorded about a million voiceovers for the Sydney train stations.
Someone then got hold of these announcements and messed with them a little.
Dad swears he didn’t do it. Have a listen.
Listen to Dad weekday mornings from 5 till 9am on 2SM in Sydney and nationally on the Super radio network.
