With Jonesy & Amanda on a break, it’s time for the Ugly Phil-in


WSFM’s Jonesy & Amanda are going on a mid-year two week break, so how do you cover a high rating, consistently entertaining show? By finding the exact opposite – the Ugly Phil-in!

Ugly Phil (or Uncle Bill as Amanda thinks he’s called), has hassled everyone he follows on Instagram to find celebrity guests, and so far has organised Russell Crowe, Alice Cooper, Wil Anderson and somebody from Dancing With The Stars – but so far Nicole Kidman has still blocked him.

He’ll also chat with the man with the world’s deepest voice, the woman with the world’s best memory, a scientist who can turn you into a robot.

WSFM Content Director Mike Byrne says “So far I’ve been very cynical of Phil’s approach to his success, and I’ve been proven right every time … but I’m not getting up early and who else is gonna do it?!”

Catch Uncle Bill on WSFM Breakfast for the next two weeks – or until stock runs out.

Biggest mistake was MMM letting him go. It gave them so much music cred. These guys they have on now no names and the audience know it.

Ugly is a legend. He makes the show seem like its completely off the edge, unplanned and just whatever happens happens. Of course it isnt, but thats his talent (and his producers!)
