75 Years King of Radio, Bob Rogers, Talks To Greg Poppleton


Bob Rogers is an iconic Australian radio and TV broadcaster.

He has been in radio 75 years.

Tonight Bob interviewed me.

We talked about Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters‘ latest 1920s-30s album, ‘Back In Your Own Backyard’ and Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters‘ exciting Foundry 616 jazz club show, Thursday 19 January. Tickets are selling fast.

We talked about Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters‘ exciting debut 1920s – 1930s show at premier Sydney jazz club Foundry 616, (616 Harris St Ultimo) Thursday night, 19 January. Get your TICKETS now

Bob also talked about Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters‘ latest CD and digital album, Back In Your Own Backyard. (Bandcamp / CDBaby / iTunes) Bob played two tracks from the album. It is rare for an independent jazz band to be played on Sydney commercial radio.

Bob Rogers began radio as a panel operator on 3XY Melbourne in 1942. His first DJ show was in Hobart a few years later. He then went to Brisbane and made a hit of Slim Dusty’s ‘Pub With No Beer’.

He presented Australia’s first Top 40 show on Sydney’s 2UE from 1958 to 1962 and was Australia’s top radio DJ for the next 8 years.

In 1962 he joined 2SM Sydney which jumped to number 1.

In 1964 Rogers was chosen to represent 2SM on The Beatles’ tour through Europe, Asia and Australia. Rogers became known as the Fifth Beatle.

He returned to 2UE and presented his morning radio show with a new format of provocative commentary, gossip and music. His programme became the go-to interview show for Australian and international celebrities including Frank Sinatra.

The Bob Rogers Show, a late night TV variety show, ran for five years on the Seven Network.

In November 1995, Rogers joined Sydney radio station 2CH. According to the Nielsen radio ratings survey, Bob Rogers’ Morning show became the fourth most heard radio programme in Sydney in that particular time slot – no mean feat for an easy listening station in Sydney to achieve a greater audience share than a talkback station.

His Saturday 2CH show is rated No. 1 in Sydney.
