Grant Goldman 50 years in Radio

My Dad and Sydney Breakfast Radio Legend Grant Goldman.
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.

EAT-PRAY-DRINK-PARTY-LOVE

The year long filming of my movie “Shooting Goldman” is done, Big Brother series 9 is dusted and I’ve just turned 40 so its time for a party. Had some mates suggest I celebrate in Bali. Golden man I have never been to Bali and have always been one of those people who said that they would never go after Muslim extremist bombings in October 2002, but they were 10 years ago. I have friends who have moved there, previously lived there and constantly rave about how incredible it is for the heart, mind, soul and more importantly to me they have awesome cocktails. Oh, and then theres these AAMI ad’s on TV at the moment featuring some Balinese dude called Katut romancing a middle aged australian woman, Julia Roberts Eat Pray Love style. It absolutely cracks me up every time I see it. Im not embarrassed to admit it, but I loved the movie too. Javier Bardem is one of my favourite actors, he’s in it. So enough reasons to go, I’m there!
About 6 months ago I decided to start organising my 40th in Seminyak with the help of good friend Tracey Williams Strano. Tracy runs a wedding company called www.oolalah.com.au and was on my case to sort an invitation. So as you can see I sprayed myself gold and got shot by my best buddy Henryk Lobaczewski, please check his stuff its amazing. This is me as the real Gold-man!

Mike Goldman as Golden God
Mikes Bali Birthday Invite
Yes I actually sprayed myself gold for this photo. Things we do huh? So it looks like I have about 55 people coming to Seminyak and the first party has some killer surprises. Really bummed my dad cant come, he is on chemotherapy after having cancer cut out for the second time the poor old buggar. Part of the reason Im having the party in Bali was for him to get away and enjoy himself after his first scare. At least most of my other family members ar coming including my homebody brother Jay. Can you believe he has never been out of the country in his adult life. He wont know himself when he gets back. Anyway get well Dad, and as for the rest of my friends and family, you’re in trouble! Get ready to party.
If you’ve been and want to suggest something for us to do there please post it here and I’d say it will probably be on the cards. Stay tuned for an update of how things go.
