I couldn't agree more, dano33.. New FM IS all over the place.. I do long for the 'glory days' of NEW (1989-1992 was when it was at its' peak I reckon).. The beginning of the end came in '92 with conversion of KO and NX to FM (which levelled the playing field), NEW was overtaken by NX in the ratings not long after KO/NX were bought by Austereo in '97, and the final straw came when Bill Caralis bought 2HD/NEW in '99... it's been all downhill (pretty much) since..

As requested in the Newcastle ratings #3 thread, I have done an audio air check of the Newcastle FM stations of Triple J, NXFM, NEWFM & KOFM all broadcast from Mt Sugarloaf.
The air check was done to compare audio quality of the stations mentioned, the file is 33MB (sorry guys about the size). It's in .flac format as I wanted it to be as close to off air as possible, so used a compressed lossless format, you may need additional codecs if playing in Windows Media player.
It was recorded this morning straight off air using a Pioneer HiFi, recorded onto my Mac using Audacity, the sound hasn't been fiddled with at all, it's straight off air.
Due to the heat, Triple J has some multi-path distortion in it today, but you still get the general audio quality.
Mark, I don't think it will be too hard for you to figure out, but would be interested in others thoughts about the audio quality & the order of the stations.
Each station has about 1 minute of audio, total file about 4 minutes, to give you a good listen & feel for the sound quality.

Also, there is a new tv add for New fm. I caught it last night. No sign of it on YouTube, so no link

here's one out of left field that I didn't see coming - Alex Flack, who people would remember from the brilliantly under-resourced but highly talented and kicked-in-the-arse-by-the-fuckwits-at-DMG and ex Star Gosford, has been appointed as EP of the David and Tanya breakfast show on KOFM.

Good on him, surprised? Yes! But glad to hear that he has a gig after the summer drive!

he's a good young man and has heaps of talent, so it's good to see that he's got a gig.
