Saturday 24 February 1962 — SYDNEY

BP Super Show presents a special tribute to Australia’s top radio presenter Jack Davey, hosted by his friend and rival Bob Dyer.

Davey was incredibly popular and prolific during the ‘golden days’ of radio in the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s but due to ill-health only had a short career in television. He passed away in 1959 at the age of 52.

This one-hour tribute was taped at the studio of GTV9 in Melbourne, where it was also broadcast the same night, and was four months in the planning. The following year the program won a special TV Week Logie Award.
