Parton makes his move – Mike Jeffreys cops the bone

By johnboy 25 April 2009 67

If Mark Parton had the good sense to advertise on this website there’s a fair chance he’d be in the Legislative Assembly right now surrounded by a staff of his mates.

Instead, as predicted here last November, he’s given the shove to Radio 2CC’s Mike Jeffreys and taken over the wierdly titled “Best of Breakfast” slot on the little listened to station found on the deprecated AM spectrum.

In a move reminiscent of Soviet Russia (something perhaps, should we have reason to refer to 2cc in future we might call them) there is now no mention of the former star on the website.

And yet Google still thinks he belongs there.

When you displease Canberra’s inner wheel, as Jeffreys did in the Spalding case, life can get very hard.

It a shame that the only reason I listed to 2CC no longer exists (exit MJ). I think 2CC should have a new slogan; I like to start it off with just two examples for your thoughts.

1. 2 Crappy Commentators (Mike Parton being No 1. Who is #2?)
2. Cheers 2 Crematorium Communications (a toast to a dead radio station)

If you have some tantalising (2CC) slogans please share them with us.

Hold on, hold on …… AM radio still exists ?

I didn’t think there would be enough people still driving around in Datsun 120Ys to support it.

I have an old magna. am is my only radio band.

Do you see us gasbagging about twitter?

I think not.

It’s a general mark of a moron to think twitter matters a tinker’s cuss.

Twitter, and other social networking medium similar to it, do matter, jb. They are a method of reaching other audiences outside standard communication channels. If twitter, and for that matter, facebook are such a waste of everyone’s time, why is it that large organisations are starting to use them to communicate their messages to a wider audience, engage in meaningful discussions about their products, terminologies and systems and provide additional avenues to make contact with new potential clients?

facebook is the same as twitter, however, even the RiotACT has a facebook page, with links to the new and interesting threads. Twitter is a scaled down version, allowing, for example, other forums to send out updates on new articles that may be of interest to members.

The professional version of these social networking sites is Linkedin. These sites have a purpose, whether it is re-establishing communication with old friends, creating new links to clients, or to ensure that the message that a group or company is trying to get out reaches a much wider audience. It is all part of the new direction that web 2.0 has allowed us to examine.
