Hear triple j’s new breakfast show
It was a “cracking” first shift from triple j’s new breakfast lineup of Ben and Liam, with journo Brooke Boney and regular friends Dylan Alcott and Gen Fricker.
In week one of the new show, Ben and Liam will be giving away “insanely good” Laneway Festival experiences in Life In The Fast Laneway, and hanging out with Alison Wonderland, London Grammar and Jamie T.
The popular Like a Version will also make a return this week with New York-based Phantogram.
Listen to the best bits of their first show here on their new daily podcast. The first episode is aptly titled “Anything crossed with a poodle is popular” courtesy of their first ever caller.
Talking to Radio Today after their first day on air, triple j’s content director Ollie Wards told RT that “Ben and Liam have got off to a cracking start on triple j”.
“In just their first couple of days, they’ve been reverse interviewed by Alison Wonderland, got music news from London Grammar, given away Laneway Festival VIP tickets and fielded several TOOL requests on the notorious triple j textline.
“The new team are all having heaps of fun; listeners seem to be getting into it, and we’ve got loads of great stuff still to come,” he said.
Before joining Australia’s national youth broadcaster, Ben and Liam were hosting breakfast on community radio station 92.7 Fresh FM in Adelaide.
