During his morning program on Melbourne radio station 3UZ, Bert Newton talks with Graham Kennedy about his late mentor, the popular radio announcer Nicky (Clifford Nicholls Whitta), who died in 1956. Graham talks about his first memory of hearing Nicky, starting his own radio career in the 1950s and Nicky's 'soft, close microphone technique' that created an intimacy with his audience.
