Macquarie Metro Vintage Radio Ads 1986

On October 3 1986, Australian media magazine 'Ad News' ran an unusual double page spread color advert for the Macquarie Metro radio network. Unusual, because it featured a series of vintage radio receivers with Australian radio station callsigns across and around their dials.

At the time, the Macquarie Metro network was comprised of 2GB Sydney, 3AW Melbourne, 4BH Brisbane, 5DN Adelaide and 6PR Perth. In addition, there were three regional stations: 2CA Canberra, 2WL Wollongong and 4AY Ayr [Townsville].

The ad message was "For Every Ten Dollars Spent On Macquarie Metro, We'll Throw In One".
