Kyle and Jackie O go ad-free for an hour

Kyle and Jackie O non stop...#KJnonstop2Day FM breakfast show presenters Kyle and Jackie O presented an entire hour of this morning’s radio show without music or ad breaks.

The hashtag #KJnonstop” briefly trended on Twitter.

The 2Day FM network remains the strongest in market despite recent controversy over remarks made on air by Sandilands.

The hour non-stop was a challenge set by the producers of the radio show as a spin off from Australia’s Got Talent, in order to demonstrate the presenters’ talent. The idea was set up on yesterday’s show: Kyle and Jackie O OneHour.

Sandilands and Henderson took over all elements of the show, including reading the news, weather and horoscopes as well as chatting for an entire hour.

  2. More like they have run out of advertisers who will go into the program.

    A lame gimmick from lame talent

  4. Dear Mumbrella

    Can you please put a big fat black dot over Kyle’s face for all articles and newsletter stories featuring an image of him. Jackie, although annoying, is fine to look at.

    Thanks.
    Your readers

  6. I can’t choose what’d be worse; the music they play on 2dayFM, or listening to Kyle and Jackie O for a full hour

  8. Would have been better if it was non-stop music for an hour with no adverts and no talking from Kyle and Jackie. When I listen to the radio, I’m very rarely interesting in the talking from hosts, I just want to hear new music. And I don’t want to hear constant adverts.

  10. It’s like when a dog toes a turd in the park and then the owner doesn’t pick it up. Double the s??t

  12. These two are professional presenters, even if the mob here don’t appreciate every word uttered. There is a great deal of much worse lo-com-dom facile pap sent out on radio stations across the world than K&O.

  16. Jean I can tell that you weren’t listening.

    Honestly it was just painfu, awful!

    If this was a challenge set to prove that they ‘had talent’ (AGT) then I think the jury is in and they failed miserably.

    Lots of comments on twitter asking for an hour of music rather than an hour of their miserable attempt at entertainment – and this was from their fans!

    To be hones,t I think they just needed (once again) to disguise the fact that they had no ads. This is not the first time they have pulled the ‘no ads’ stunt in recent months.

  26. I think it shows great flexability in the show format that can allow such smart tactics and all 2 people here might not like the show, but 772,000 people LOVE IT.

  28. I did Kate and I read your quote ‘To be hones,t I think they just needed (once again) to disguise the fact that they had no ads. This is not the first time they have pulled the ‘no ads’ stunt in recent months.’

    The arguments you put forward are so flawed that you can drive a truck through them. Why dirty your campaign by putting forward incorrect information and statements. Just stick to the we hate kyle and you want him off air…no need to mislead people with incorrect information such as advertisers don’t like him, listeners don’t like him etc

  30. Paul – so I’m a Kyle ‘hater’ now am I? Does one have to ‘hate’ in order to push for social change? Interesting…

    Let’s put the spotlight back on you for a moment. Paul do tell of the 20 advertisements that went to air during 8 and 9am. They started the no-ad hour as it was creeping up to 8.30 – they are shockers for running over time. (Finished at 9.40am this morning). Tell me about the ads that played during that time, go on, 20 you say. In half an hour of broadcast time. Really?

  32. Kate – i assumed hate cos the campaign is called sack vile kyle, not a lot of love in those words

    And I thought the K&J hour of chat started at 8 – my bad – these ads appeared prior to 830. All good, I stand corrected (insert egg on my face) – I won’t tell you the advertisers in case you bully them lol

  38. It would be preferable if they went for a talk free hour -and then repeat it next hour and so on.
