So they did the whole show on 'pedal power', playing music from Songl via their iPhones.

Jerimiah Busniak, their audio producer, records funny guest intro's but had to do one live this morning for Julia Morris.
 


After the show Jo said: "While it may be a commercial nightmare, from our point of view as performers it was a luxury to be able to creatively free fall and engage with our listeners in a more relaxed environment. I’m only amazed that my mic was open for such a long period of time without me swearing or defaming someone!"

Meanwhile at Fox FM's sister station Triple M, Dangerous Dave came prepared for any similar issues :-

If your playout system hasn't kept you awake at night, you're not a radio engineer.
