Again, like 2FM, the veneer is covering the cracks. Only one faller, book on book, is Matt Cooper down 2,000. The characters behind the schedules changed between quarters. The 12,000 increase between nine and twelve has a good dose of Anton Savage in there having been on the chair up to December.

No direct comparison with the previous year, but book on book was good bar the breakfast. Moncrieff had a very decent quarter up 17%.
