How The F*ck You Can Get Into Radio

In the early 1980s and before he was a member of The D-Generation, Tony Martin moved all the way from New Zealand and settled in Queensland to work in radio as a copywriter for FM104, now known as Triple M Brisbane.

The internet didn’t exist, and there were limited ways on promoting the station, especially when it came to recruitment and clients. So there was this fancy little booklet that was printed to illustrate the ins and outs of FM104. From within, in lies Martin doing his actual job as a copywriter.

To accompany said booklet, a ‘state-of-the-art’ video was produced, just to illustrate the personalities and the internal structure. Within said video, a very young Martin, playing the piece-to-camera and copywriter.

Be aware, the contents of this time capsule is quite dated and there’s a language warning if you’re at work.

And for the ladies, here’s a pin-up just for you.

    I’m sure Tony mentioned his job on FM 104. He did some promotional work for the station at Wa Wa Nee and Howard Jones concerts.

      I see the FM104 shirt and I think “A Nest of Occasionals”

  1. The scene where he’s running after the cameraman down the street reminds me of a similar scene in The Rutles: All You Need is Cash.
