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

Former 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.

Want a LOT MORE of Andrew McLaren. Actually it would be fantastic to get rid of the boring Sydney bloke on weekends overnight, and replace him with Andrew. It would be wonderful to have 7 nights of top class listening – week nights with Tony and weekend nights with Andrew.
