Buddha turns on the vibe

Mix 102.3's Breakfast Show "Jodie & Soda" had a chat with Gene Simmons from KISS this week, and following the chat had him record a message for Port Adelaide's senior coach Garry 'Buddha' Hocking; who is apparently a big fan of the band.

So far so good.

Until they played Buddha the audio....his reaction was perhaps not the one that had been expected. Hear the audio below; skip to the 3.10 mark to get to the reveal.

Sea prank a listener

A fun video from Sea FM Gold Coast's 'Galey, Ross & Charli' this week in their 'Rude Awakening' segment.

A couple of Sea listeners nominated their former housemate Mitch, who apparently had a history as a prankster, and the Sea team sent around a small, but loud, marching band to 'gently' wake Mitch up.

Mitch took it well, particularly for a guy who hasn't seen the earlier side of 7am for a few years.

Studio's dead, but we've got a ukelele

If sleeping in is the worst nightmare for a Breakfast Announcer then this must rank a close second for any Announcer - particularly those who are on-air at a time when there is no engineer in the building.

Earlier this week the 96Five Breakfast team in Brisbane were on the air, when Next Gen and Adobe in the studio completely died.

The microphones still worked, as did the (outdated) backup CD.

A Brekky Jocks worst nightmare....

...surely must be sleeping in.

Rod Cuddihy from Mix 106.3's Kristen & Rod takes it all in his stride though....even gives the camera a wink, or perhaps that was the studio lights.

Good to see a pro at work :)

A Bearded tail: The Changing Face of Cliffo

Cliffo from HOT FM Townsville's Cliffo and Bec just wrapped up bearded tail over the last week.

After nearly a year, Cliiffo had his “beloved beard” shaved off. His pride and joy turned into a week long story arc ending with the Changing Face of Cliffo video and a nice bag of clippings for his wife.

Take a look and listen.

Wild Panther roams Albury streets

Tabby Tom aka Tom from 'Tom & Olly'An awesome local and listener-driven story arc from Star FM's Tom & Olly ran across multiple shows this week.

The backstory: Tom & Olly challenged the Lavington Panthers Netball Club to raise money for the Cancer Council, and in return, Tom would spend 1 minute for each dollar raised wearing the team's mascot suit - a Panther of course.

The team raised $345, so Tom & Olly owed them five hours and 45 minutes in the suit....in public, and all captured on video. 

Below in all it's glory....the video adventures of "Tabby Tom the Lavington Panther".
