With his boots on

I listened occasionally to John Cargher's Singers of Renown and enjoyed it every time I listened. Producing a program for 42 years continuously is a great effort. We have people in Bathurst who have produced programs for 30 years on 2MCE-FM, the station where Jacinta Tynan, Andrew Denton and several other distinguished Aussie broadcasters began, but I don't know of anyone else who has kept it up as long as John.

The one program I remember is one in which he passionately promoted Phantom of the Opera, the then new opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber. A ninety minute trip from Katoomba to Parramatta passed very quickly.
