Australia ll sailing legend John Longley knows exactly where he was in 1980 when 96FM changed radio forever in Perth… and he wasn’t sailing.

At the time, Longley was a media teacher at North Lake High School, where he would use the station as a way of making a point.

“I was trying to explain to my media students what an FM radio station was, and I turned on to 96FM and said, ‘see how much clearer that is?’ and they all looked at me like I was nuts.”

It was also the year Alan Bond approached him with the opportunity of a lifetime.
