triple j raise 19k for Red Cross

Staff Writer

In December last year, triple j teamed up with some of Australia's finest musical talent and the Red Cross to bring you the Christmas charity single, ‘Christmas Number 1’.

Briefly, the song was #1 on the iTunes chart, however even more importantly it has been announced that the song has raised just over $19,000 for the Red Cross.

The song was written by Drive jock 'The Doctor, and the band comprised of Phil Jamieson from Grinspoon, Elizabeth Rose, Thomas Rawle from Papa vs Pretty, Bertie Blackman, Tuka and Jeswon from Thundamentals, Joyride, Abbe May, Andy Bull, Laurence Pike from PVT, Touch Sensitive, Bree Tranter, Asta, Calum, James and Bryce from Lunatics on Pogo Sticks, B1 & B2 from Bananas in Pyjamas and Dr Karl.

Also performing on the song were triple j presenters Tom & Alex, Zan Rowe, Linda Marigliano, Nina Las Vegas, Dom Alessio and Tom Tilley.

All the artists donated their time. 

Lindsay ‘The Doctor’ McDougall commented:

‘From a little idea, a flurry of phone calls and one crazy studio day, we managed to not only get to the top of the charts, but also raise some real life cash money for people who really need it.

I was already stoked to make a song with such awesome musicians, and now we know we made a real difference. How good’s music?!’
