I wondered the same but my theory is:

They broadcast across so many stations and different podcasts now they can spread the costs even if basically no one is listening to any of them.

None of those guys on that station outside maybe Bensley would earn much.

There is a fair bit of advertising money in the various gambling companies. Alot of those weekly shows would be an arrangement where someone or a company has bought the air time. A bit like The First Serve on SEN.

They don't have to pay for any racing rights.
Hard to disagree, I share the same theory. It’s essentially bankrolling Hutchy’s losses, take it away and goodbye SEN

Are you saying track is bankrolling his business? Because there is No way this is bankrolling his business..
it’s only 18 months or so old.. and the listening base would be so low advertising wouldn’t be massive dollars.. or this method is bankrolling?

Is track heavily sponsored? I can’t get through 5 mins so wouldn’t know..
and I assume it’s run out of “tags” garage also

Reminds me of a year fox footy ( may have even been optus )decided it was a good idea to have John Barnes and Scott Cummings host a brownlow update show.

So bad it was entertaining , at one stage Barnes fell off the couch trying to reach a bowl a chips on the table

exactly,doesnt matter if anyone listens or not,all SEN is on a Weeknd is a Ladbrokes,sportsbet,pointsbet station,tis up to the individual wether they wanna tune into that,no matter what its all paid for and inturn hutchison pays amatuers/work experience to take up the talk space

Is there any other explanation? Hutchy’s forked over the big bucks for Whateley and Dwayne, with varying degrees of success (even the success is nothing to write home about)

Even if it’s mere revenue raising, how much of it is keeping SEN as a whole afloat?

Ha ha,there was a guy called dave,I think from Cranbourne who used to ring the overnight show & he was as dull as church,myself & others I know would text in bagging him & the host would say " there's a lot of positive feedback out there for dave"

So seems like they are running overnights out of Perth now until they run the replays and then the early tradies show. Probably makes sense, getting someone to start a shift at 7pm Perth time is better than 10pm Melbourne time.

If it was going so bad they wouldn't be expanding
yeah you can look at it a few ways,stimulates employment,gives unknowns an opportunity theyd otherwise not get,then the counter argument would be
quality over quantity,one owner, same message/format across the board,its a balancing act youd hope to get right

Atm they seem to have half a dozen interchangeable young blokes who sound the same & share similar viewpoints,it's in danger of becoming sort of like I'd imagine communist radio to be

Being in the city we don't get the three hours of Off the Bench'during the footy season I was just wondering if Brendan from Bealiba was still alive and kicking? I have had a few jokes read out by Pickers in that last hour, the last one was "what do you call a dodgy tap? a Feral Fawcett...." I go on long walks with my dog along the Marby, I come up with them then. This Saturday listen for; "I was peeling spuds the other night. Yeah, one bit me on the thumb...it was an ouch potato..." :huh:
