Rosie Beaton’s Super Request returns for Double J’s fifth birthday

Former Assistant Editor

triple j’s digital sister station Double J is five years old this week, and there’ll be plenty of celebrations.

On Tuesday, April 30, Double J will feature Zan Rowe, Karen Leng and Tim Shiel reflecting on their favourite stories, artists and songs from the last five years.

From 5pm, the public broadcaster welcomes back former triple j Nights host Rosie Beaton, who is bringing back her Super Request show for a one-off special on Double J.

She’ll be taking requests on the textline for two hours, before Double J’s April Artist in Residence J Mascis will bring you a special Live At The Wireless at 7pm.

“What a blast it’s been, growing with Double J,” says presenter Zan Rowe.

“Some of my most treasured convos have lived on Double J Mornings; from D&Ms with Janelle Monae, to wild rides through Thundercat’s life; masterclasses in song-writing from Beck, therapy with Robyn, and tantric sex talk with Neil Finn.

“Best of all, the Double J Fam have strapped in and wholeheartedly come along for the ride. What a joy.”

The station launched in 2014 with a live broadcast hosted by Myf Warhurst at Melbourne’s Kelvin Club.

It is Australia’s #1 digital station with a 5 city weekly reach of 264K people.

“We’ve had a blast talking to you about our favourite songs, artists, genres and eras!” said Double J in a statement.

“Sometimes things got heated and friendships were tested, but it was all for the love of the music.”
