Radio Stations are branded or identified by an image package of sweepers or jingles. Listen to some of the 2DU idents from over the years. (When the dialogue box appears, select "play from current location"). How many do you remember?
The "125 – 2DU" Jingle package was produced on Oct 5, 1978, and aired until 1984. There were 17 variations within this series including "City Rhythm, Disco Life, Finger Lickin', Slow & Raunchy Rock, Tango, Summer & Winter". The package included News Themes. Station identification "125 2DU" was used prior to the installation of the Cobar Translator on 972Khz.

The 1978 Jingle package was replaced in 1984 by the "We're With You, 2DU" series. Once our Cobar Translator began operation, 2DU could no longer be branded solely as "125 2DU".
The "We're With You" package was produced at Studios 301 Sydney, on Nov 14, 1984, and remained in use until 1989. There were 21 variations within this series, with a number of different tempos and moods and some male, female and group vocal versions.
