The Adelaide Show
168: Radio 5MU Style
November 09, 2016 Steve Davis

This week, we go back to where the Adelaide Show really began, with Steve's introduction to radio in Murray Bridge in the 1980s; a story we'll call Radio 5MU Style. It was a fateful Sunday morning in 1985 when I headed off to Murray Bridge for a 10am job interview with David Bean and Phil McEvoy. Little did I know I would be on air that afternoon for a trial and then back the following Saturday with my first radio job. During the next seven and a half years, I got to meet some talented, hard-working people and some larrikins as well, and about a dozen of them have gathered tonight in North Adelaide to reunite with old colleagues and share war stories of the great mistress, radio.
