Have a listen as Mike takes us on a journey back to Alice in the 80s, and meet presenters Craig Moore, Big John and Big Al Stainer, just some of the characters that made it all happen.

There is even a guest appearance from Australian Cricketer Doug Walters… and a picture of the first broadcast vehicle to transmit out of the Tatts Finke Desert Race.
