Sad news at Mike Ahern's Passing

If you grew up in Brisbane in the late 60s/early 70s then you would remember Mike Ahern from radio 4BC. Mike was a hero DJ to a generation of Brisbane Baby Boomers. My husband Mark has fond memories of doing his home work listening to Mike on the radio spinning Beatles records. It is hard to imagine now that Mike and his fellow DJ's had a cult like following from the teenagers of the day. Mike passed away early in the morning of October 5 in England after a battle with cancer. He was in Australia earlier in the year and I had the pleasure to join with him and Mark for lunch. He started his career on Radio Caroline in the UK and was able to broadcast again from a Pirate Radio reunion just recently.
