aftershock logoEvery friday from 4pm-8pm, Terry the Tec takes to the air with his show The Aftershock. This request show has been running for many years now, and Terry just loves presenting it.  In the past Terry would stagger into the studio with bags and bags of CDs, so that he was prepared for almost any request.  Nowadays, the job is much easier with a portable hard drive!

People tune in to Terry’s show in Alice Springs and Tennant Creek, and over the last few months, since 8CCC began streaming online, there are listeners tuning in from across Australia and overseas.  Often these listeners used to live in Alice Springs or Tennant Creek and became Aftershock fans.  They are delighted to be able to reconnect with the show and with Alice Springs again, and FaceBook has helped to spread the word.

Less than a third of the way through The Aftershock this friday, there had been about 25 phone calls and 115 comments on Facebook, with song requests, shout outs and lots of banter among Terry’s fans, who were tuning in from the Territory, Queensland, SA, WA, NSW and the UK.  Terry also heard from customers at an outback pub in Ariah Park, NSW who had The Aftershock as the soundtrack for their evening.

So with all these songs, and all these requests, what is Terry’s favourite band?  Akka Dakka (ACDC) of course.  Rock on, Terry!
