Today I had to go to the Bendigo Media Centre. It’s a strange little place, a combination of very new buildings and horrible brown-brick 1960s buildings, erected in the shadows of the main broadcast transmission towers on a hill near the middle of town. The centre houses the studios for the local Ten and Austereo networks, so the lobby is full of glossy promotional posters for the network personalities.
On my visit today I particularly enjoyed the posters featuring the local radio announcers. You have an image in your head of what these people might look like, and it's never, ever accurate. There's a reason people are told they have a good face for radio, and yet management insists on having them sit for lobby portraits. The results are often unintentionally hilarious.
