Listen: triple j host Ben Harvey’s first, cringeworthy radio demo

Former Assistant Editor

Radio can be a steep learning curve for announcers, and most on-air talent would probably rather forget their early demos and air-checks.

triple j Brekky host Liam Stapleton wasn’t about to let his co-host Ben Harvey forget about his first recorded demo.

Liam surprised Ben and listeners this morning by playing back Ben’s first cringeworthy demo on air.

Highlights include shocking sound effects and the fact that Ben seems to talk faster and faster as the audio goes on.

Enjoy below:
