US Marines Corp drop into City Park Radio
On Monday 29th April Retired Lt Colonel John Stevens from the US Marine Corps visited City Park Radio to express his personal thanks for the station’s contribution to the Balcombe Barracks Commemoration.
The visit from Colonel Stevens was unexpected but we were honoured that the Lt Colonel found time to visit en route to the celebrations in Victoria.
City Park Radio’s Peter Thompson presented a very special “On The Bandwagon” programme 22nd April to celebrate The Balcombe Barracks Commemoration—it was also broadcast across Australia via the Community Radio Network, with a local repeat 6th May.
A lot of work went into this program — and we thank all those who assisted .. especially Peter Thompson & Brian Watson.

Reelin’ in the Years — Classic Album –
Marvin Gaye “what’s goin’ on” 1971
After a string of massive Motown hits throughout the 1960s, Marvin Gaye went into seclusion following the sad death of his friend Tammi Terrell in 1970. He emerged the following year with the album “What’s Goin’ On” and it changed the face of popular music.
His eleventh album was backed by The Funk Brothers, a band of respected musicians who had played on Motown’s most famous records. Lyrically, “What’s Goin’ On” featured political themes, drug abuse, poverty, and the Vietnam war, making it one of the first protest albums of the 1970s. The state of the world coming out of the 1960s inspired Marvin to ask the question in the title song, inviting his listeners to look at what was happening around them.
The title track was released as a single, followed by “Mercy Mercy Me” and “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)”. All songs rode high on RnB charts around the world. The music features jazz, gospel and classical arrangements – multi tracked vocals and saxophones impart emotional and soulful sensations. The album stands as a masterpiece after forty years, full of inspiration and passion!
