Carols In The Park off to a good start

Carols In The Park has gotten off to a good start at Norwood Park, with the 2CC broadcast going well as well. If you want to send a Christmas message to anyone, ring 2CC on 62554444 and you will probably have the opportunity to do so, depending on timing of events and how many other calls they get.

Christmas on 2UE and 2CC Update

Glenn Wheeler has just announced that he will be on-air on the afternoon of Sunday, December 25. Does this mean that 2UE will maintain a mostly normal schedule on Christmas day? If so, 2CC listeners might just get to hear George and Paul on Christmas morning…I can’t think of a better way to start Christmas! George and Paul would certainly bring a large element of fun to Christmas with their unique and zany style of presentation.

I will probably ring 2UE during the week to find out what they have in store for Christmas.

Carols In The Park

Carols In The Park is on tonight here in Canberra, from about 6PM. The venue is Norwood Park in Gungahlin, entry is free and all proceeds from sales go to charity. For those of you who can’t make it, there will be coverage on Radio 2CC and Foxtel’s Aurora channel.

Mike Frame will be running 2CC’s broadcast, and if you look carefully, you might spot some other 2CC staff in the crowd.

You can find the official guide in this week’s Chronicle, it includes the words to many christmas carols, which will (hopefully) keep the audience on the same words as each other, even if they aren’t in tune! But it is christmas, so it hardly matters if we are in tune.

UPDATE: TURNIP ALERT: Chief Turnip Jon Stanhope will be in attendance and will run the official opening, hopefully he will avoid his trademark political grandstanding and let everyone enjoy their night. Remember Jon, Aurora (Foxtel’s Christian Channel) are replaying this twice on Christmas Day, think about appropriate publicity before you speak, you will have plenty of other, and more appropriate, times for your political views.

Set Of Three “Finals”

It is said that things (both good and bad) happen in threes, Friday certainly showed that with a series of “Finals”

  • The official final day of the ACT school term
  • Mike Jeffreys final breakfast show for the year
  • My final day in my latest job

Mike Jeffreys Goes On Holidays

As 2CC listeners would know, Mike Jeffreys is now on holidays for four weeks, he will return on Monday, January 9 if all goes to plan.

At this stage I am led to believe that Mike Welsh will fill in for Mike Jeffreys on the breakfast show in the coming week, and Mike Frame will fill in for Mike Welsh on the drive show. Mike Welsh is taking the week off between Christmas and New Year, I have no idea what will happen during that week or the weeks after, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear the voices of Mike Frame, Kevin Woolfe and Leigh Zaghet running various shows.

This morning a number of people rang in to wish Mike Jeffreys a merry christmas and a happy new year, I was going to, but only had 80 cents of mobile credit, and left a message for him instead (Thankyou to Kim for passing that on).
