Carols by Candlelight 2011

Karl Stefanovic & Lisa Wilkinson

It’s an institution. The Christmas Eve Carols by Candlelight is something that most people either congregate at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl (if they’re in Melbourne) for or cluster around the television to enjoy a night of carols before the big day. It’s a television event everyone can enjoy, and the line-up of talent reflects [...]

With Josh and Stace on Star FM #3

Mid North Coast's Star FM Logo

How do you know it’s Christmas? Simple – radio stations are so starved for content they’ll let anyone on air to talk crap. Enter Molk. Courtesy Josh & Stace – the Star FM Breakfast Crew – we managed 3 breaks this time! Surprisingly we had a lot to talk about. My crowd-sourced Top10 Christmas movies, [...]

With Liam and Robbie on 96.5 FM #1

96.5 FM (96Five) Logo

A great pickup just when I thought everyone was on holidays, and the start of what should become a semi-regular spot on Brisbane’s 96.5 Family Show with Liam, Robbie & Ness. We talked Christmas movies and the lack thereof on television this Christmas time. There’s been some screened, but not anything near what there could have [...]

Top10 All-Time Favourite Christmas films

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

The Christmas movie is a specific genre of film that is designed to have the happiest of endings. “Peace on earth, goodwill to all men” kind of endings. “Giving presents to everyone with a lovely staged warm family Christmas shot” kind of endings. Funny how there’s no Australian Christmas films – no snow here – [...]

SPECIAL: 2010 Christmas TV Guide


You can smell it. Christmas is here. If you couldn’t tell by the parking at the shops, then the content on your TV should be signalling something special is going on. I love Christmas – I really do. All this Christmas programming makes this big old softy just a little warm & gooey inside. So, [...]

With Jabba and Shano on C91.3 FM #3

My 3rd segment Talking TV with Jabba & Shano on C91.3FM - and sadly my last as this was Jabba’s last show. D’oh (I seem to attract segments on shows that are finishing up)! A shame because it was lots of fun to talk to these guys. Lots to talk about, though, even outside the ratings period [...]

2010 Prep Christmas Concert

Seriously, it looks like some kids have painted some pictures and you've stuck it up - and you call that scenery?!

Never before in my 37 long years have I been subjected to such high levels of cuteness. The smiling little faces. The dodgy costumes. The effervescent hope in the face of impending failure. The mixture of plasticised smiles and out of time dance moves. The 2010 Prep Christmas concert was mired in controversy. The Angels choir [...]

Carols in the Domain

Carols In The Domain

Oh. My. Goodness. It’s nearly Christmas time. Or at least that’s what the networks would have us believe, given the number of Christmas specials and Christmas press releases upon us. Oh look! Another one… For its 28th year, the much loved Christmas event Woolworths Carols in the Domain will be hosted by Grant Denyer and [...]
