“I’m outraged, appalled and saddened”: 3AW caller fails to pick up the phone

Assistant Editor

3AW Nightline is #1 in Melbourne for a reason, with Simon Owens and Philip Brady experts at their craft.

Earlier this week Owens was joined by fill-in guest host Andrew McLaren, and they, together with panel operator Mark Petkovic experienced some of the perils of live radio.

A caller – “Mark in research” – picked up his phone but then ghosted the radio hosts, who could hear Mark’s radio in the background.

As they do best, the 3AW team got the best out of a bad situation.

Unfortunately, the call had to be dumped from the show and joins the neverending blooper reel of live radio.

Listen to the dumped audio below:

Miss Andrew and Mark’s radio show duo – the life lessons they taught me guide my daily life – be positive, add humour to daily conversation, dwell not on the negatives. Love you guys and miss you heaps.
