Bob Dyer was the #2 radio personality of the 1940s and 50s after Jack Davey. He was also a pioneer of TV in Australia. This ad is from 1954.

Here are some more print ads from The Age from 1953.
The first one is for Jack Davey, who at the time was the highest paid radio personality in Australia. I guess his shows, of which he had many, were simulcast into Melbourne from Sydney on 3AW.
This is another Davey related ad but it comes from the Sun and is about his appearance at Myer rather than his radio show.

I didn’t know that there was an Oscar for most popular shoes, but if there were it would go to the ever popular Dunlop Volleys.

Seeing as the Dunlop Volley’s are tennis shoes devloped by Australian Davis Cup player Adrian Quist in 1940, it is perhaps apt to have an ad for 3AW’s Davis Cup coverage from Kooyong in December 1953.

And finally an ad for Tom Corbett Space Cadet, which was a radio serial of an American TV show of the early 1950s. In Australia we used Aussie actors in the roles instead of directly playing the US serial.
