Glad Smallacombe's contribution to cricket radio has not been fully forgotten, as most other sources believe the Australian XI-Rest of Australia match was the first to receive such coverage, when that came after Smallacombe's broadcast.

But outside the field, the big successes came from the radio broadcasts provided by 2BL and 5CL, the first for Test cricket. 5CL's was especially incredible, as Bill Smallacombe single-handedly provided live ball-by-ball coverage throughout the entire week of the third Test! Absolutely crazy stuff.
