Club back after Christmas break


Tony Pilkington with President Barry. A new ” Bazz and Pilko” ?

After a break for Christmas/New Year, the Club held its first meeting for 2019 on January 15.

Our guest speaker was media legend and fellow Rotarian Tony Pilkington. Tony rose to prominence in 1976 when he paired with Barry Ion to form the “Bazz and Pilko” team on 5AD radio station.  His  tremendous contribution to the media since then has been recognised by the general community with an award of an OAM and by his peers when he was inducted into the Commercial Radio Hall of Fame in 2011.

Tony entertained the meeting with an amusing recounting of his life as a radio announcer. We were delighted that two of the Club’s major sponsors – Dimi Kyriazis from Golden North and Andrew Gunn from ALH- were able to attend.
