"Aunty Jack Introduces Colour TV to Australia". Aired on ABC TV Australia on March 1st, 1975.

I stumbled across this Youtube video when a friend was introducing me to "Aunty Jack". Apparently it was an Australian classic TV caper in the 1970's. I guess a precursor of Mrs Brown, with a guy dressed up as a woman. Very silly stuff.

Half way through, I blinked and thought I imagined seeing an EMG horn. Still can't make it out for sure.
Here is the Youtube link. The horn appears at 2 min 10 seconds.

The edges look shiny, maybe an old radio horn.

Agreed. There is also an old valve radio in the same shot.

Sure could be, but I can't say I have ever seen a radio horn that big.

The horn shown at 2.10 is the horn speaker shown on top of the radio at approximately 1.07 in the video.
That shot also shows another horn in the background whick I assume is another radio speaker, although really it could be anything they've placed on the set.

It was a bit of a trip down memory lane to see Auntie Jack again after so many years.
I never liked the show when it was originally on, but my brother was a regular watcher and fan, who also loved watching shows like Benny Hill and The Goodies.
Some of Auntie Jacks pop recordings were quite enjoyable though, and somewhere I've got a 45rpm picture disc of theirs.

I also spotted a barbers chair in the video above that's the same as one I have, that's a fairly early example .
