Luke’s last words.. “I opened my big mouth”

Luke and Susie Holt are the breakfast team at Juice 107.3 on the Gold Coast.

Being a husband and wife team.. It’s not that unusual for Luke to, put his foot in it from time to time.

But lycra?

Separated at Birth #27: Geyer & Becko

Well it's a slightly different separated at birth, but Triple M Sydney's Mark Geyer and Daytime Jock Becko clearly forgot to check in on what they were wearing to work today.

See the pic below....

Feuds and Fights

The Daily Telegraph has published an article on some of what they call Sydney radio's great feuds, you can see it in full here.

It touches on the John Laws vs Alan Jones battle through the 90s, the internal 2Day feud between Peter Moon and Wendy Harmer which ultimately got Moon sacked, amongst others.

Whilst the Telegraph article is pretty loose with the facts, it did occur to us that there has been some cracking radio feuds over the years that would be great to explore.

Sunday Fun: Fitzy & Wippa

As you may know Wippa has been preparing for  his impending fatherhood. With the AJR Brothers in town  they penned him a song. 

Or put it this way, the boys took inspiration from their hit song "I'm Ready" and reworked to "I'm Daddy".

Pretty clever  as they try and work out boy and girls names for Wippa.  Take a peak below.

Jerry Seinfeld on advertising

Ad’s are a part of our lives and The CLIO Awards are one the world’s most recognized international awards competition for advertising, design, digital and communications.

“I love advertising because I love lying,” comedian Jerry Seinfeld told advertising execs at the annual awards show last week.

He went on to deliver a deadpan acceptance speech perfectly, for securing his honorary Clio award:

“I think spending your life trying to dupe innocent people out of hard-won earnings to buy useless, low-quality, misrepresented items and services is an excellent use of your energy,” Seinfeld said.

You can watch the full acceptance speech below, the execs in the room may not even have picked up on it.

Thrown in the Deep End

Like all stations here, chances are you have had a work experience kid rock up for a week to see how radio works.

Well 19 year old Kevin Moore showed up for his first day of work experience at public broadcaster RTE in Ireland to work on their popular Breakfast Republic show.

Taken into the studio we has told that breakfast team were sick and he would have go On-Air straight away.

At the top of the hour he had to read the news and a comp to give away a Guinea pig - all the time with the Breakfast Republic producer in his ear.  It got worst for Kevin.

Shazam Fail!

It seemed simple enough, The Veronicas stopped by Nova 969’s Fitzy and Wippa to chat their new track You Ruin Me. While they were here the boys put them to the test with the Shazam Challenge.

Armed with three songs Jess & Lisa had to outsmart Shazam by singing their own songs into Wippa's mobile phone.

Shazam Fail!

car crash radio...literally.

Not every day that you can report on a car accident as it happens, but that is precisely what occurred on SEN Melbourne yesterday when Morning Presenter Kevin Bartlett was chatting to Drive Present Mark Allen on the phone.

You can hear the audio, and see the picture of Mark's car below.

The Ernie Awards for Sexist Remarks have been run and won for 2014.

It has been an annual event at NSW Parliament House since 1993, attended by up to 400 women and one or two brave males.

It’s a democratic process whereby nominees are declared and the audience decree a “boo”. Those who rank highest receive varying degrees of Ernie Awards.

While this is nothing new for Kyle, or for  that matter, any other radio talent with an equal standing of sexist behaviour in past years, Kyle and Jackie O took out the Clerical/Celebrity Ernie (The Fred). Their sexist effort? K&J's Getting to Know You segment with  Nine's Footy Show's Erin Molan. She quit not long after.

Who beat them to the top Ernie?…  A politician no less.

Gold FM receptionist hires young talent

The Melbourne community radio station SYN has long been a fertile breeding ground for commercial radio talent, with names like Hamish & Andy, Ryan Shelton and Scott Pape all having emerged from the station.

Now, 'Tom & Olly' (left) who host 'The Afternoon Breakfast Show', more traditionally known as the Drive show, are intending to follow in those footsteps.

With Tom just out of university, and Olly in final year, they are rapidly approaching the 'cut-off' age of 26 to be eligible to work on SYN, so decided to look for a new job to fit their forthcoming maturity.
