Johnny Chester

NeilGuest Promos

One of the true icons of the Melbourne and Australian music scene – has hosted TV shows (Ten Time, Teen Scene and Country Road), hosted radio on 3UZ (Melbourne) and Radio Australia, has won Golden Guitars in Tamworth for performing and songwriting and, oh that’s right, been the support act a few handy performers over the years – Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, the Everly Brothers, Tammy Wynette and a four piece group out of Liverpool who attracted some attention in Melbourne in June 1964.

I was absolutely delighted to interview Johnny a few years ago on Radio Ga Ga – you can hear the interview by clicking here. Meanwhile, you can hear Johnny’s Turn Up Your Radio promos below.
