W.O.C.K On Vinyl - Jonathan Coleman: Aussies On 45 (1981)

(Australian 1981)
On Australia Day we come together as a nation to celebrate what's great about Australia and being Australian. It's the day to reflect on what we have achieved and what we can be proud of in our great nation. It's the day for us to re-commit to making Australia an even better place for the future. Australia Day, 26 January, is the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 convict ships from Great Britain, and the raising of the Union Jack at Sydney Cove by its commander Captain Arthur Phillip, in 1788.

With respect to Australia's Music Industry, we can be very proud of the contributions that our Aussie Musos have made in entertaining people from every nation with music and song, with many of our artists achieving world wide acclaim. Therefore, I would like to celebrate Australia Day by posting this wonderful medley of Aussie tunes recorded by one of our country's well known and respected T.V / Radio celebrities from the 70 / 80's. I hope you enjoy it and have a great Australia Day !

The Aussie artist that I'd like to acknowledge this Australia Day / WOCK on Vinyl post is the TV Celebrity / Radio Announcer Jonathan Coleman

Jonathan Coleman's broadcasting career started in the late 1970s in Australia when he was chosen a member of the reporting team for the popular afternoon children's TV magazine show Simon Townsend's Wonder World, created and hosted by journalist Simon Townsend. 
This was followed by several years as a DJ and presenter on the ABC's youth radio network Triple J. Jonathan is accompanied by The Brenda Gee Singers on this 1981 WEA single "Aussies On 45". Coleman was also the voice of the popular Australian 70s and 80s music radio program "My Generation", heard on the Australian Radio Network and currently hosts the Studio 10 morning show on Channel 10 (info sourced from Ozzie Musicman with thanks) 
The post consists of FLACs ripped from my 45 and includes full album artwork and label scans.
