'You’re so frightfully fashionable. You’ve got impeccable taste. You’re so smart, so suave, so superior, you’re the cream of the human race…'

Radio 2CH in Sydney released one of the more unusual advertisements for Australian radio in 1970, when they rebranded their on-air team 'The Snob Mob', proclaiming their station had gathered only the best talent and was filled with the best of everything, from music to stock market reports.

Jack Grimsley composed The Snob Mob jingle as featured in this clip.

The on-air team included Phil Haldeman, John Mahon, Sam Kronja, John Martin and Friel Smith.
