A special edition for Week 25 – as Spencer Howson is on 4 weeks leave, Kelly Higgins-Devine is running Breakfast on 612 ABC Brisbane and she’s dragged me along for the ride. Our first airing was on the Monday of the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, so it even went Qld statewide. God help Qld. For the second last week of this ratings period it was surprisingly busy. Enough to build a pretty significant list to talk about anyway.
Keep an eye out for a new regular segment – Gold Coast ABC listeners, tune in to Bernadette Young’s drive show from Wednesday 22/06!
