Listeners prank Triple M’s Jay Shipston for April Fool’s Day
Triple M Mackay & The Whitsundays got involved in April Fool’s Day shenanigans this morning, with a prank on Breakfast co-host Jay Shipston.
His co-host Dave Peters organised for the station’s tech team to change the station’s RDS (radio data system) to display the message “Call 133353 now and wish Jay a Happy Birthday!” in people’s cars.
The catch being it was not, in fact, Shipston’s birthday.
Multiple callers played along and refused to divulge where their incorrect information was coming from.
Shiptson was left utterly confused by the ongoing calls, and admitted to Radio Today “I was got good”.
