Mark Parton – hey 2ca, we need that afternoon bloke in the mornings!

By StillRockin - 2 December 2008 36

This afternoon I heard Mark Parton on 2ca, and couldn’t believe it.  What a breath of fresh air on that tired sounding AM station!

I used to listen to him on 106 until he left and I switched to Art Sound.

But driving past the Albert Hall in a taxi today (where I still remember Sherbet performing when Darryl Braithwaite was sporting a beard) I heard a familiar voice.

I might tune into 2ca again if they move Parton into mornings.  His family friendly style got us all going when he was on 106.  It’s funny, you know, in the few times I’ve listened to 2ca, I’ve never once heard the regulars talking about their wives or kids – do they even have a life outside radio?

I reckon if Parton could bring the thousands of people who voted for him across to his new station, 2ca would be over the moon. We’ve got talkback for the oldies on Triple 6, and stuff for the youngsters on the FM’s, but what about having brekky show with good music and a family friendly personality for the rest of us?

There is only one station worth listening to and that is Triple J, especially in the mornings. Other than that, 666 is good to listen to when grandstand is on…BUT THAT IS IT!

I got tired of Parton going on about his kids all the time. I have kids too but I don’t bore my friends and colleagues with incessant chatter about them. I’m sure they are a nice family but enough was enough.

Do we still have any facts behind the rumor that he was stabbed in the back by Lisa on 106?

It’s definitely true mate, I’ve heard from many an extremely reliable source I can tell you.

Still can’t believe Cam Sullings replaced him, at least Parton had some semblance of intelligence, this bloke is just an insincere suck!

And yeah, this reeks of viral stuff. From experience people seldom write in to say something good, but when it comes time to complain about something then they mysteriously find their motivation.

Still, it does happen sometimes but I remain completely skeptical.

guh. can’t stand the guy, met him once and he seemed most amazed, bordering on offended, that I didn’t know who he was

I like 2CA’s morning crowd – pacy and funny. I heard Mark doing a ‘man about town’ gig with them over the weekend. He was fine except for the fact that he called everyone in Tuggeranong a bogan: ‘well I’m down here with the bogans at Tuggeranong Good Guys’ does not go down too well. [And why is it always ‘down’ in Tuggeranong? It’s not that far, surely, and it’s very annoying]

Doing a shift on 2CA? Boy, they’re really getting desperate trying to find something for him to do . . .

What an utter, utter, family friendly tosser.

Woof

That would be the pack circling 😉

It’s smells like Mark wrote that fart himself.

Hey Mark…don’t get high off your own supply dude. hee hee

*howls*

Wait – do wolves eat astroturf?

Thumper 9:10 am 02 Dec 08

Besides, SGS would be all over it if it were ture.

Thumper 9:10 am 02 Dec 08

Hehe, fair call.

This post is simply a Parton for AM radio viral advertising ploy like the previous two before it.

First we had some bullshti unsubstantiated rumour that parton was taking over the 2CC morning show. That was shown to be patently false.

Then a followup post again about these ‘rumours’ that parton was talking over the Am slot of 2CC. Again, unsubstantiated rumours that came to nought.

And now this follow up load of drivel.

Woof, woof, howl…

I thought I’d hang the carcass out there for the wolves.

Geez JB, you’re getting lenient with this ‘Parton for AM morning radio’ push.

What, this is the third post on the subject?
