Woof Woof?

Post by seewhy » Tue Jun 13, 2006 9:43 pm

Hi all!

Just wondering if someone can clear up something that's a bit of a mystery to me... :)

Can anyone here tell me what Santo's 'woof woof' at the end of quite a few of the 'Graham & the Colonel' sketches was in reference to?

I can't exactly remember why - but it also dates back to the 3EON (aka MMM Melborune) breakfast show when they had Graeme and the Colonel - it's on the Breakfast Tapes CD where Santo said it then.

Woof Woof originated from "World of Sport", a long running Sunday morning sports show on channel 7 that went for 25 years. The voiceover man was "Uncle Doug" Elliot who did live reads for commercials and sponsors. He would alway end his speel with "Woof, woof".


In the 80's on Melbourne radio 3KZ there were two football commentators called "Wally and the Major". Along with the Anchorman, Harry Bietzel (sic), Major was up in the commentry booth and Wally did the around the ground crosses to the change rooms etc.

When the D-Gen started on EON/MMM, everyone assumed at the time that these were the origins of the names and the phrase "woof woof", although I don't believe any TLS members have confirmed or denied it.

It all makes sense now!

Top work, Steve! I knew you'd come through with the goods!

I've never questioned the 'woof woof' thing but glad I know it now.
