Super-Request with Rosie Beaton
2003 - 2011
For nigh on 8 years, under the auspices of rival radio-head and conjoined twin Ken Oath, Mr Merde presented a spiffing segment of Occasional Oddities on Super-Request with Rosie Beaton. Eventually the greatly loved Rosie announced, to much hue and cry, that she was moving on - and with that Ken decided to retire for a spell also. This was their last ever segment:
Previously Ken had also produced one-hour long Sound Lab specials on Eccentrics and Australiana - and performed a two-hour 78rpm mega-mix on Saturday night's Mix Up program. You can read the full story of his formative relationship with the National Youth Broadcaster in this elaborate blog post - made to honour the era that essentially came to an end with Rosie's departure.
