Triple M Mackay & The Whitsundays celebrated a big milestone today for their Brekky team Jay and Dave.

Jay had already been on the air for three years before they paired up for their first show together on January 17, 2011.

My first impression of Jay might be a little cliché maybe, but it was a little like catching up with someone I hadn’t seen in quite a while,” Dave tells Radio Today.

First impressions? Of Dave? Well, he made me realise just how attractive I am,” Jay laughs.

“We were yin and yang then and we still are now”.

Over more than seven-and-a-half years together, the pair has shared a lot on and off air.  Dave says that openness has been a highlight of their show.

When Jay came out live on air to Bob Katter – THAT was a highlight!” says Dave.

“Also, knowing that Jay had my back during a tough break talking about a very dark time that I was going through.”

Working with him isn’t hard at all.  We both have strengths that compliment each other. Jay is one of the most creative people that I’ve ever met.

And the respect is mutual if tinged with a LOT of good-natured humour.

“What’s it like working with him? Like, I’m the dad and he is the child!” says Jay.

“Working with Dave isn’t hard. We both have a common goal and we reach most of the goals we have set.”

This morning to celebrate they played an old break from one of their very first shows…
