Hit Scene

1 9 6 9 – 1 9 7 2 (Australia)
30 minute episodes

The half-hour ABC (Australian Broadcasting Commission) show Hit Scene debuted on 10 May 1969 and was broadcast in black & white on Saturday afternoons until 16 December 1972.

Each episode featured interviews with Australian groups and singers or a touring international act, an in-studio performance by an Australian artist, film footage of an overseas act, music charts from around Australia, and reviews of new releases.

The unlikely host was bespectacled square ‘old timer’ Dick Williams, a Melbourne-based radio announcer.
