Triple M to celebrate ‘OzTober’ with INXS rockers
Legendary INXS rockers Tim Farriss and Kirk Pengilly return to the airwaves next month as part of Triple M’s ‘OzTober’ campaign.
From October 3, the one-hour lunchtime show ‘OzTober Live with Tim and Kirk’ will be broadcast across 32 stations on the regional Triple M Network from 12pm as part of a month-long celebration of local music.
From Kylie Minogue to Icehouse, Tim and Kirk are set to explore the stories and artists behind some of Australian music’s most recognisable tunes, as well as provide the inside scoop on legendary gigs, songs that shaped the industry, and the artists that tore down barriers and conquered the globe.
Following their successful radio debut last December, the INXS stars are thrilled to be back in the saddle.
“After years of being at the mercy of radio DJ’s to play our music, my best mate Tim and I can now tell them all to get …. Because we’re going play whatever the hell we want, including lots of INXS!” Kirk Pengilly said.
“Watch out Triple M, we’re taking over lunch during Oztober with lots of stories, great Aussie music and general INXS-ness!!”
More iconic artists will take to the chair as guest hosts throughout the month, including the likes of Hunters and Collectors’ Mark Seymour, Diesel, Screaming Jets front-man Dave Gleeson and Mark Gable from the Choirboys.
The OzTober celebrations will finish with an exclusive concert available only to Triple M Club members. More details are yet to be announced.
