Keeping up with #MolksTVTalkRadio…


Radio keeps me pretty busy these days. So busy I'm becoming quite good at it, and someone should employ me to do it. Ahem. If you want to keep up with my regular spots across the FM and AM bands, but don't have access to the radio at the times I do them, you can swing by my SoundCloud pageand have a listen at your leisure. As always I value your feedback, so don't be afraid to tell me what you really think about them. If you really wanted to help you could ring your local radio station and tell them they should get me on for a segment! Point them to my SoundCloud page and their Program Director will get a great example of the kind of thing I do and could do for them. BE MY PIMP! If you've not kept up, here's a couple of samples from just this week you can enjoy... Sea FM Wide Bay - Kim & Mak (08/02/12) by MolksTVTalk … [Read more...]

Week 36 radio spots


Back in the saddle, live from Brislantis (so, on the phone for just about everywhere still). Following up the outcome from Choppergate and so much more - but most excitedly plugging Wild Boys (and my podcast interview with Dan MacPherson and Zoe Ventoura accordingly). All a bit of fun, really... This week’s topics included: Heads roll at Ch9 Brisbane over “ChopperGate” There will be nothing scarier than this week’s episodes of The X Factor Australia (Ch7) Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation enjoy the budget spoils of previous seasons, but not the ratings (Ch10) Bushrangers get sexier with each re-telling – Wild Boys (or “UnderKelly”) (Ch7) Do. Not. Watch. Same Name. (Ch9) This week’s 4 Corners signals “Bad News” for Murdoch’s British Media Empire (ABC1) James May returns with a new series of Toy Stories (SBS one) Season … [Read more...]

Week 35 radio spots


Another very special "on the road" edition of my radio spots, all live from Parkes again. In what started out as a massive week became an even MORE massive week with the revelations relating to the Channel 9 "ChopperGate" scandal. 3 sackings and a resignation make for solid radio, so I had some extra chances to talk about it, including being asked for a quote in a story run on The World Today on ABC local radio and Radio National. Yay me. This week also included my first spot with new station Juice FM - thanks Callum! This week’s topics included: Congratulations Polly & Waz, Winners of The Block 2011 (Ch9) 4 Corners Celebrates 50 Years (Mon 8:30pm ABC1) Get a little more Ita into ya (Australian Story (part 2) 8pm ABC1) Is a new Young Talent Time or Ch10 Breakfast really going to work? Packed To The Rafters is back, bumping the … [Read more...]

Week 34 radio spots


This was a weird one for me - all my radio spots were done by phone (I'm usually in the studio with Kelly Higgins-Devine for my 612 ABC Brisbane spot), and while I think it worked, it wasn't ideal. Of course, how does one deliver spots with radio peeps all over the country when based in Brisbane (or Parkes)? Still - lots to talk about, especially with the Network Ten 2012 launch on Wednesday night... This week’s topics included: The Block goes to Auction Sat 20/08, and final S03 ep goes to air 21/08 (Ch9)! It’s tastier than you might think (Can Of Worms Ch10) Does it get any more embarrassing than Embarrassing Bodies (Ch9/GEM)? Suits. Do it. It’s arrogant fun. (Ch7) The life and fame of Ita Buttrose - Australian Story Mon 15/08 (ABC1) Season finales/cancellations: The Block (Sun 21/08 Ch9) Hot In Cleveland … [Read more...]

Week 33 radio spotz


More work of a morning with Rod Cuddihy (of Rod & the Flack fame) on 4TO - one more week of Townsville love, and then it's back to normal. It was great to see Ben Fordham this week in Brisbane as well as have a chance to be on his 2GB show again, along with the others that I've been doing normally (including long timers Star FM, Mix FM, 612 ABC Brisbane and 2HC). I've so much love I can barely contain it - and that's just for TV. This week’s topics included: Congratulations to Kate/Michael – Winner of series 3 of MasterChef Australia (and welcome Junior MasterChef Ch10)! Four Weddings is back in all its cringe-worthy glory (Ch7). Ch9’s 7pm soapie The Block enters it’s second last week with even more drama on tap. There is never enough Shaun Micallef on our screens - Welcome back Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation … [Read more...]

Week 32 radio spots


A return to my semi-regular spot with Ben Fordham on 2GB this week to talk reality TV, as well as a new spot with Tim Bergh on FM1047 Grafton with a weekly round up on all that's happened on TV. A massive week of radio - 8 spots all up, on top of the sporadic 4TO spots I'm doing with Rod Cuddihy at the moment. Ahh, unpaid radio spots... ;) This week’s topics included: The ultimate actual Grand Final for Australia’s Got Talent this Tuesday (Ch7). Welcome back The Gruen Transfer – we’ve missed you (ABC1). What Top Design is doing very right, and what it is very wrong (Ch9). The final week of MasterChef and The Renovators stick at 8:30pm – have we overdosed on Ch10 reality? GO! & 7mate battle it out as part-time movie channels. New episodes of Grand Designs a welcome return to the ABC. Season finales/cancellations: Marie … [Read more...]

Week 31 radio spots


Little bit quieter on the radio front, but LOTS to talk about with the launch of a whole bunch of new shows. Got to be involved in my first outside broadcast, going out to Fernvale to do my regular spot on 612 ABC Brisbane with Kelly Higgins-Devine (all week her Drive show has been at different places looking at the impact of the floods 6 months on). No ABC Coast FM spot as Bernadette Young was ill (get well!), but a new spot on 2GF starting next week! I also did a daily spot with Rod Cuddihy on 4TO this week while he's filling in up there - if I can get the spots I'll publish them here. This week’s topics included: Did Chris Lilley go too far with Angry Boys? (ABC1) SBS one charts 50 years of the sexual revolution in Australia, hosted by Julia Zemiro (Sex: An Unnatural History) Dinner Date – so bad it’s good (Ch7) Has … [Read more...]

Week 30 radio spots


It's a weird time. Normally you'd expect a mid-year ratings break, but not in 2011. It's straight through to the end of the year, so while we end some programs and start others it feels like there's not much on. How wrong we are... This week’s topics included: Ch10 squeeze in The Renovators, at the cost of all else. The Amazing Race Australia is casting for a second season already (Ch7). 500 episodes for The 7PM Project (Ch10). Underbelly Razor is coming – and it looks AMAZING (Ch9). Happy 45th Birthday Play School! (ABC1) Long form drama comes back to the ABC – Crownies. Insiders celebrates 10 years (ABC1). Season finales/cancellations: Downton Abbey (Sun 8:40pm Ch7); Offspring (Wed 9pm Ch10); Lawrence Leung’s Unbelievable (Wed 9:30pm ABC1) New/returning shows: Great Migrations (Sun 7:30pm Ch7); Top Gear UK (Tue … [Read more...]

Week 29 radio spots


It's always a big television week when you have the finale of a reality "talent" show, and so Dancing With The Stars makes it no different. But then I'll always find something to talk about, such is my predeliction for all things televisual. At least I got to return to a normal timeslot with Kelly Higgins-Devine as she slotted back into ABC Drive with Spencer back into breakfast. Ahh, the crazy, heady days of Drive. This week’s topics included: Congratulations Manu Feildel – winner of 2011 Dancing With The Stars (was anyone else gonna win?) (Ch7) Getting better the second time around - Can of Worms (Mon 8:30pm Ch10) The Glee Project specialises in quirkiness, sunshine & competition (Fri 7:30pm Eleven) MasterChef goes to New York and nobody buys Mat making an “honourable exit” (Ch10) When too much DIY is never enough: The … [Read more...]
