Brenno: The Life and Times of a Media Godfather, John Brennan tells of the highs and lows, successes and failures, the stars and the people behind the scenes, that contributed to a unique media career. John Brennan is one of the most respected men in the Australian media and this is his autobiography. A pioneer radio broadcaster in the 1950s, Brenno , as he is affectionately known in media circles, is credited with starting the Top 40 music format, learning from the best in the USA. He successfully establishied the talkback format on 2UE, 2SM and 2GB and he produced some of the most iconic sports coverage with Frank Hyde on radio and Ray Warren on television. Along the way, he discovered such radio talent as John Laws, Alan Jones, Ray Hadley, Stan Zamanek, Brian Bury and Arch Tamabakis, and as station manager of several radio stations had to juggle the egos and tantrums of high profile radio stars.
