Liam auctions his car to a Fresh listener

Staff Writer

With Fresh Adelaide’s Ben and Liam moving to Sydney for their new role as Triple J Breakfast presenters in 2017, Liam Stapleton decided he wanted to pay back the station that gave them a start in radio.

As he had to sell his car for the move Liam took bids from listeners on his 1998 Ford Laser during the Fresh breakfast show this week.

The car was sold for $1000, and a second hand Playstation, and Liam has donated the proceeds to Fresh. 

Liam said: “The money goes to the station for all of the support they’ve given myself and Ben over the years as well as for the next round of volunteers coming through“

Liam then asked the buyer if he could take “his girl” out for one last spin, and arranged for a ‘jump’ to be made in a field in Adelaide, with the intention to drive the car over the jump on their last show this Friday…..unfortunately, but perhaps understandably, the listener declined, preferring to take the car in one piece!

He might have donated the grand, but Liam is keeping the playstation, and fair enough too.
