Nostradamus Predicts Spain To Win FIFA World Cup Jon Stanhope’s 2CC Appearance

Chief Turnip on 2CC

June 26th, 2006 at 07:22am

Chief Turnip Jon Stanhope will be on 2CC on Tuesday (27 June) at 4PM answering calls from the public. If you would like to ask him a question (and get an answer), here is your chance.

I wouldn’t be surprised if callers are limited to one or two questions as 2CC are likely to be swamped with calls during this segment. I’m also not sure how long Jon Stanhope will be on-air for, but I suspect it will be from 4pm-5pm. I will contact 2CC to clarify this.

2CC is 1206 on the AM dial, and their open line number is 62554444. Drive Show host Mike Welsh has a promo running for the segment where he says that it will be a chance for people to ring in and put their questions to the Chief Minister.

I plan on recording the entire Stanhope segment and putting an MP3 of it online. I’ll let you know once that is done. I also have plans for a live webstream for the benefit of the interstate/international audience. I’ll have more details tomorrow morning. (Although I will update this post with the duration of the Stanhope segment as soon as I have the details to hand).

Also, as a few people at 2CC read this site, this post is probably going to attract the attention of 2CC management…if you have a problem with me putting the Stanhope segment online, please contact me so that we can discuss it.

    I’m not even going to bother asking Stanhope a question, but I’ll listen to the segment .

    A great idea Samuel. I’d like to hear what Mr Stanhope has to say and just how he could possibly defend his budget. Also I’d like to know how it took so long for him to be hauled on air. In Sydney the Premier and the PM seem to be eager or at least willing to defend themselves and sell their message.

    On second thought…. I’m not even going to listen to Stanhope on The Drive Show this afternoon. I was listening to him answering question on the ABC this morning, and all he did was ramble on and on and on and on ……………
    He didn’t even pause for a breath, lest somebody jump in and say something whilst he was rambling on and on and on ………

    I just couldn’t stand listening to any more of that continuous drivel !

    I’ll tune in after he’s gone .

    I tuned in to 2CC about 4.40pm and heard a man complaining to Mike Welsh about Stanhope only giving half an hour of his time (4pm to 4.30pm ), and for giving “long winded replies” and “going on and on” . (There were still a lot of people waiting on the line at 4.30pm to ask Stanhope questions, but he left the studio anyway).

    The next caller, a woman, accused him of giving long-winded replies to questions AND accused him of being arrogant . (seems she met him in a shopping mall and tried to ask him a question, but she didn’t like the way responded ).

    Time check – it’s now 5.06pm .
