KIIS Network

I confess to listening to Kyle and Jackie O on a regular basis. My reason? They are the only breakfast show on Sydney radio that is ad libbed. Instead of having “pre-determined “hilarious” discussions of what happened in the supermarket yesterday”, their show is spontaneous and that’s nice to wake up to.

Kyle and Jackie appear to have not pre-prepared every comment they make. And neither of them spend the morning fake laughing at the other.

Of course there are dangers to such unscripted conversations, but it’s also refreshing that they are not reading from a piece of paper that was written 24 hours before hand.

I don’t particularly like Kyle but when you listen to the competition on FM, I can see why he rates. And Jackie has the sexiest voice on radio.

You probably have Stockholm Syndrome.

Assume this is in relation to his monkeypox comments.

I get the attraction of being unscripted but at some point you’ve got to think rationally about the content and draw the line.

At some point advertisers will, regardless of how many listeners seem to be able to suspend their morality and values and laugh at others’ misfortune

It’s only a matter of time until another “British nurse” thing happens again. Then watch everyone run for the hills and pretend they weren’t part of it.

I can’t believe this always has to be said, but the nurse incident was on 2Day FM’s Hot30 Countdown, not Kyle and Jackie O. I don’t always agree with Sandilands’ antics, but it’s unfair to wrongly attribute an incident that involved a completely different show to them.

I stand corrected. I always get confused between the nurse incident and the 14yo rape victim lie detector scandal, amongst the many other disgusting and unfunny pranks. Again, I can’t understand anybody who defends him, or listens to the show.

Given Seven will broadcast the funeral live, KIIS stations in Adelaide and Perth will also have to air the lead-up radio specials live, to avoid missing the start of the funeral.

After the first song on Will & Woody on KIIS 1011 Melbourne. We had 30 seconds of silence and an appareance of the backup tape. Which is a KIIS jingle followed by Ed Sheeran - Overpass Graffiti. Song only lasted 30 - 45 seconds before returning to normal programming.
