My Generation, the radio show that pays tribute to the music, people and events of the 60s, 70s and 80s, will mark its own timeline this week when it broadcasts its 700th episode on Saturday 2 June.
Each week hosts Amanda Keller and Brendan ‘Jonesy’ Jones reminisce about a particular year - revelling in the music, news, fashion and culture of the time.
“Any show that celebrates shoulder pads and leg warmers – all through music – is a winner in my book!” says Amanda. “700 and we don’t look a day over 536!" added Jonesy. The 700th show will focus on 1985 – the year Madonna went "Crazy For You", Michael J Fox went "Back to the Future" and Wrestlemania went centre stage; along with a special tribute to the past 699 episodes.
Produced by MCM Media, the show is broadcast to 96 radio stations nationwide, including the Australian Radio Network’s (ARN) Classic Hits metropolitan stations; and reaches over 437,000 listeners each week. Launched in 1999, the show won the Australian Commercial Radio Award for Best Syndicated Australian Program in 2011.
Sam Thompson, Group Content Director for MCM Media, says the show’s ongoing success lies in its ability to evoke the emotions of an era. Music can transport you instantly into another time and place within your past – My Generation’s great skill as a program has been to make that journey one all of Australia can share and enjoy.”
