The Betoota Advocate takes aim at Triple M
Satire news site The Betoota Advocate has fired off a broadside at Triple M with its latest piece poking fun at the network’s playlist.
“Triple M Plays Nothing But Pearl Jam And Chisel For A Whole Week To See If Anyone Notices,” reports today’s headline.
The article goes on to report that “content directors believe non-Chisel-or-Pearl-Jam music might be a bit of a ratings gamble.
“’That’s pretty much all we play anyway, give or take a bit of Bon Jovi’ says music selection director, Hugh “Blue” Collar.
“We actually got through an entire week playing only Pearl Jam and Cold Chisel and no one said shit. In fact we got a ratings bump.”
The writer then pulls a quote from a ‘local listener’ Glenn Garry, a 42-year-old tiler, who rekons “as long as he gets to hear Khe Sanh on the dot every midday, they can play whatever else they want.”
