EARLY MORNING RADIO. MUSIC OR WEATHER? [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 22 December 1928

EARLY MORNING RADIO. MUSIC OR WEATHER? Every time a change is made in the radio programme somebody shouts hooray and somebody utters a protest. Until recently, station 2 P C Syd ney used to start the day at 7 a.m. by broadcasting music Then a farmer wrote that he had to leave at that time, but first he wanted to know the forecast and rainfall, tem peratures and mail notices. He said all other farmers would like it also, and he made such a good case that a change was made. Now the studio music starts 3 5 minutes later. The result is a letter from a man in Sydney: "I sincerely hope that the alter ation to your early morning session will only be of short duration. It was pleasing to have music first then information from the papers, but the present alteration sends one off to sleep again. If the exchange is made for the farmer, he receives his report on the previous evening. At 7 a.m. he should be out in the fields whereas all business people are un at 7 a.m. and may glean all items of...

URGENT CALLS BY RADIO. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 22 December 1928

URGENT CALLS BY RADIO. Although some radio listeners do not appreciate interruptions in the broadcasting programmes when the announcer asks that anybody know ing the whereabouts of so and so, would give him (or her) the news that a near relative is dangerously ill, and similar messages, there is abundant evidence that by radiating matter of this kind the broadcasting stations render very definite service from time to time Only this week at the request of a listener living at Ashfield, station 2 P C radiated an urgent call for a man at Wauchopi. The message must have been heard by thousands and within ten min utes the man was informed. The importance of the occasion is made clear by the fact that his friends wished to advise him of the fatal ill ness of a near relative.

RACING BY RADIO. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 22 December 1928

RACING BY RADIO. Probably no feature of the broad casting programmes from Sydney is enjoyed more than the description of the horse races, radiated by Mr. M. A. Ferry on the various Sydney courses-enjoyed by racing enthus iasts at any rate. This class, who follow the 2 P C Turf Commissioner (and possibly have a quiet bet at the same time) make all sorts of re quests of the broadcasting stations. The latest comes from a listener at Bethangra, who asks Mr. Ferry when starting out to describe a race to repeat the result of the previous race. The request for the repetition of race results cannot be complied with. The Broadcasting Company takes the position that it has so much to give listeners in the time at its disposal that it is unfair to those who arc either not interested or have gone to the trouble of tuning in when a racc result is being announced to go back and do it over again.

' WATER WANTED. But Not Available. . At Tuesday's meeting of Fairfield Council, « letter was read from the Water Board, in reply to one from the town clerk, asking what would be the deficiency charge of conect ing three cottages in Morven-street with the mains, in which it was stated that the supply , system was already overtaxed, and, if these houses (to be built) were connected the position would be accentuated It was pointed out that if the Board's statement were correct, it would retard building operations in the municipality.

BUY LOCALLY. During the municipal election cam paign some aldermen had cards printed at "The Biz" Newspaper office, advising electors to vote for those candidates who had their print ing done locally. It is hoped these aldermen (who were elected) will be_ consistent, and see that no council printing that can be done locally is sent away. This also applies to other people who send printing away from the town and district. We hear a lot about "local patriotism"-but the outside canvasser with his alleged cheaper rates is too much for some. "The Biz" Newspaper renders a cer tain amount of free service through its columns, which cannot be given by outside printers ot newspapers.
