Saturday night was the reunion of staff from Double J & Triple J over 40 tumultuous years. Hear from Master Tom, Mikey Robins, Chris Norris, Geoff Overmyer, Jane Gazzo, Andy Nehl,Marius Webb, Tracee Hutchison & Rusty Nails tell a few stories from the House of Jays in the 20th century.
The national institution that is radio Triple J started 40 years ago today. Staff from 40 years got together to party on Saturday night. We spoke with Mikey Robins, Jane Gazzo, Dr Karl, Rusty Nails, producers and management about a wild place in wild times. Contains lots of swearing, fuckin’ heaps.
If there was ever a relaxed episode of Sunday Afternoon Fever, this was it. I was back from 3 weeks holiday and the show features Mrs Sinatra and myself lazying by the pool at Caesars Palace.

Appearances from The Jerky Boys, Racheal Burger and some really attentive listeners on Maynard’s Mastermind Quiz.
