triple j’s lonely Liam ‘mate dates’ a listener
Former community radio broadcasters Ben and Liam moved to Sydney from Adelaide this year for their new gig hosting triple j breakfast.
But Liam Stapleton has found it a bit lonely in the big smoke.
“It’s not easy being a twenty-year-old fresh out of home and getting thrown into the frantic Sydney lifestyle.
“In the first few weeks, the only thing emptier than my fridge was my soul, so I decided I needed to make some new friends.
Earlier in the week, Imogen – a listener of the show – got in touch and Liam arranged to meet her for a ‘mate date’.
“I should point out my best mate Ben lives down the road, but he’s always too preoccupied with his girlfriend, so he’s no good.
“Who else could I turn too? The triple j listeners of course!”
And it was all caught on camera, making for some great show and social content.
