Doug Mulray returned to Triple M Sydney this morning for a chat with the breakfast show.

Triple M Sydney is celebrating 40 years on-air this Sunday (August 2), and the radio legend called in to speak with Lawrence Mooney and co.

“It’s not a true celebration without Doug Mulray,” started Mooney. “He ruled the airwaves in Sydney for over 10 years. He was the reason Sydneysiders were late to work every morning, because they simply had to wait in their cars to hear what Uncle Doug had to say next.

“What a build-up!” said Mulray in his unmistakable tone. “Hello, yes it’s me, live and barely alive. Sponsored by Telstra’s 40 dollar a month pre-paid plan!”

Mooney and Mulray chatted about some of the legend’s biggest moments, including when he had a tiger in the studio… and a panther! He also regaled Mooney, Jess Eva and Pagey with some truly incredible and hugely inappropriate yarns about his time at Triple M

“People rang me during the cash for comment scandal… I said the day someone pays me to receive head jobs from Elle MacPherson my life will be complete!”

When asked what the fuel was that kept him going, Mulray responded: “My pure, undiluted love for radio… and an unnatural amount of adrenaline.”

Mooney also paid tribute to Mulray last July when he was inducted into the Commercial Radio Australia Hall Of Fame at the 2019 radio awards, with Mooney delivering the induction speech.

From 12pm to 1pm on Friday, Rob Duckworth will jump back on air to become the only announcer to broadcast on Triple M across five different decades.

Other significant names popping in to wish Triple M Sydney a happy 40th include Mick Molloy, Fifi Box, Alice Cooper, Jimmy Barnes, Chuggy, Mal Lees (Club Veg), Jono Coleman (Jono and Dano), Richard Clapton, Mickey Robbins, Paul Holmes and Guido Hatzis.
