Trouble at the Mill for WIN?

By johnboy - 7 January 2009 21

Samuel Gordon Stewart has a predictably detailed account of trouble with WIN’s broadcast last night.

I saw Jessica Good apologise for transmission issues but can’t say I caught them myself.

Any of our expert readership with more to add?

What’s Your opinion?

Given the the problems were not just news related, they could have been caused by a link failure. My guess is between Gong and Canberra. For those who don’t know, Win News goes to Gong first in a round trip to get to air in Canberra. There’s not much anyone can do about those problems until a tech is called out. There are some big bushfires in the southern Highlands. They may have contributed to the problem.

and the heat from the high temps in NSW may have overloaded a couple of grids.

Yeah, we all give Sam a hard time, but I really think he’s pretty harmless.

Maybe WIN should stop buying their equipment from Dick Smith?

I guess many years ago SGS would have been considered eccentric?

Samuel’s comment section was once a goldmine of pure comedy.

Cheers skid. I’ve just had a read through. Initially I was confused as SGS seesm failry articulate when he posts on RA but that URL puts a lot of stuff into perspective. Seems to me that SGS is simply unique. The world needs more unique (and harmless) people like that.

and the bio comments are from people who know him. many aren’t very flattering. I never knew what he looked like. now i understand all.

Oh, sorry back OT… as for Win, I was channel surfing and it looked to me like a live camera feed was coming through from a camera focussed on a wall.

Trouble at t’mill…

I thought the correct phrasing was “Trouble at Mill”.

Maybe WIN’s 70’s era gear is showing its age

SGS is right out there, kind of like Bowie in space sort of out there.

A rebel to his bootstraps.

Everyone is currently understaffed in Canberra due to the holiday season, I would suspect that someone is filling in for a role which doesn’t have the same level as experience. No hard feelings.

I think at this time of year they all have the work experience kid on. One of the FM radio stations on the weekend got into a horrible mess during their news broadcast, and it went on for pretty-well the whole news.

How have I never come across that maverick before? Can you become a fan of his on Facebook or should I just Skype him and ask to have his babies.
