When ‘Radio Wars’ were ‘MAD’

Back in the days of ’90s radioland, where a bunch of comedians were vying for your attention for your breakfast, morning tea and your drive home… nothing much has changed really.

In 1997, MAD Magazine Australia published a 4 page illustration by artists Chris Wahl and Jason Davis covering the perils of commercial radio – mainly Sydney and Melbourne based.

Imagery of Triple M’s Andrew Denton, Amanda Keller, Dave Gibson, Doug Mulray, Triple J’s Paul McDermott, Mikey Robins, The Sandman, Helen Razor, Judith Lucy, Dr Karl, Michael Tunn, 2UE’s John Laws, 2DAY’s Mick Molloy, Tony Martin, Pete Smith, and Ugly Phil O’Neil are all lampooned in high quality MAD humour.

Take a step back in time and don’t crease the fold-in.

Dovetail: It’s not the first time Martin/Molloy were turned into cartoons. Example here.
