Historic Brisbane Ekka misconduct uncovered
Ray Hadley has this morning heard listener Allan’s unscrupulous cheating in an Ekka competition.
After hearing Ray’s Producer Andrew Lucas, as a 13-year-old, won the Easter Show for his chocolate cake, Allan came forward with a weighty confessional email.
“I’m a qualified pastry cook,” Ray read. “In my first year apprenticeship at the age of 16, I entered the Ekka Royal Brisbane Show in the mid ’80s with a chocolate sponge cake.
“I won the gong, a blue ribbon and $15 first prize.
“Ray, this admission comes today after many agonising years… It was a White Wings packet mix.”
Ray later heard another listener confess a similar cake mix entry.
“Well there you go, it seems to be rampant among these regional shows,” said Ray.
