Bert Bryant Calls It A Day: Thursday, 6th October, 1977

John Burles, the annoucer at breakfast, on 2KY, stated that the uniquely witty Bert Bryant has officially retired from his job as a broadcaster of horseracing. Bert last worked for the Melburnian radio station, 3UZ. Earlier this year, a blood vessel burst behind his brain.

Tiki had her hair washed, conditioned and then styled with a blow-dryer at a cost of six dollars and fifty cents at the Gerrale Salon on Gerrale Street, in Cronulla. The salon is located opposite that suburb’s R.S.L. (Return Soldiers’ League) Club.

“Country Road”, this evening, included footage of performances by Donna Fargo, Australian country legend, Smoky Dawson, and Johnny Chester, who ‘butchered’ Tom T. Hall’s “Old Dogs, Children and Watermelon Wine”.

At seven o’clock, on “Willesee”, Paul Makin spoke with Bert Bryant in an interview that was fittingly recorded at a racecourse. Bert is fifty years of age, but looks more like sixty-five.

It has been a cold, windy day. Rain began to fall by 8.30 p.m.: the starting time of “Bless This House”, the British series which stars the late Sid James. At five minutes to nine — and also on A.B.C.-TV’s Channel Two — a programme from tonight’s “Stuart Wagstaff Playhouse”, which is entitled ‘The Lover’. Its cast includes the English pairing of Patrick Allen, Robert Swales and Vivien Merchant. It was written by Vivien Merchant’s husband, the playwright, Harold Pinter.
