BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE

In 1956 Ron’s lifelong dedication to an industry he loves began. He joined W&G as a sales representative, just as they were starting up. For the next fourteen years he worked his way up through promotion, A&R and production. Ron first recorded such people as Diana Trask, Ernie Sigley and The Seekers, whom Ron was instrumental in getting signed to W&G for their first recordings.

After a decade with W&G and 2 years at Astor Records as Promotions Manager, Ron set up his own independent production company June Productions in 1968 and signed such artists as Matt Flinders, Liv Maessen, Anne & Johnny Hawker and The Strangers.

At the helm of Fable-Bootleg, Ron launched the careers of many Australian now “household names”. In the fourteen years under his direction Fable achieved incredible success and recognition. This included the first all-Australian international hit, The Pushbike Song by The Mixtures.

Ron has continued to lobby internationally and nationally for the Australian Music Industry. Retirement has not diminished his support for the rights of survival for the Australian Music Industry as he joined forces for the reduction in the level of sales tax on recorded product in Australia.

Besides his coveted 1979 MBE for services to the Australian record Industry, Ron’s awards include:

Ron sold Fable Records in 1984 with a view to retiring, but like so many workaholics, the decision was made far too early. In October 1985 Ron joined AAV Australia, the company which he co-founded more than a decade earlier with music industry greats Bill Armstrong and Roger Savage, a role from which he has since retired.

Ron Tudor was the Australian Music Industry’s “favourite son”, and he is now recognised as a “founding father”.

It was Ron who recognised the potential of The Seekers and gave them their first recording contract and who also released them from that very same contract when they went to England, in order that they could sign their world wide deal.

It was Ron who first saw the potential of local Adelaide band, Mississippi, and encourage the Adelaide trio to augment and start touring with the basis of the band which became The Little River Band.

Ron Tudor, is first and last, an Australian — and by any measure, exceptionally proud of it. It is this fact that led him to fight so hard for himself and the Australian industry. It is through his vision, drive, enthusiasm and humour that he has gained the love and respect of the leaders at the helm of the Australian Record Industry todRon Tudor, is first and last, an Australian — and by any measure, exceptionally proud of it.
