THE SHOREY TRACKER

IN THE BAD OLD DAYS, WE USED TO MAKE ABC FAR NORTH BREAKFAST HOST KIER SHOREY STAY AT WORK UNTIL NEARLY 6PM JUST TO PREVIEW HIS NEXT SHOW.

KIER STARTS WORK AROUND 4AM, SO THIS LENGTHY WORK DAY WAS BECOMING PROBLEMATIC. THE SPIRIT OF INVENTION THAT PREVAILS AT ABC FAR NORTH WAS APPLIED TO THIS TRICKY PROBLEM, AND WE CAME UP WITH THE SHOREY TRACKER, A DEVICE THAT COULD LINK TO KIER WHEREVER HE HAPPENED TO BE LATE IN THE AFTERNOON.

THE SHOREY TRACKER. A RADIO REVOLUTION FOR JUST 20 BUCKS WORTH OF SPARE PARTS AND SOME FOOLING AROUND IN THE SHED.

YES IT MAY NOT COMPLY WITH SOME OF THE RULES AND REGS AND IT’S BEST NOT TO DIAL IT UP DURING A THUNDERSTORM. BUT IT LETS KIER LEAVE BEFORE EXHAUSTION SETS IN AND WE GET TO SHARE HIS MANY ADVENTURES AND ESCAPADES. CLICK ON THE AUDIO LINKS FOR RECENT SHOREY TRACKER EPISODES.
