It’s the last week of the Merrick & Rosso & Kate Ritchie Show and talk around the Nova offices is all about our top moments. How do you choose?
If you like nakedness, Rosso’s Short Straw ‘Pensioner Bodyslide’ and ‘Naked Piggyback’ have to be up there with the best.
Kate Ritchie’s nipple piercing is high up on the list, as is Mez cutting laps around the office on his motorbike. The day Michael Jackson called some of us up to say “I love you” was special too.
Here’s what some of the staff members remember fondly…
Denee (News Reader): “For me, it was all the times they called my mobile phone – live on air while I was on holidays and asked me why I wasn’t at work taking their traffic calls … circa 2005!”
Jamie Row: “I really loved muck up day… when they all dressed up as school kids and pranks around the building.”
Steve Brown: “Muck up day 09…. dangling the blow up doll outside Alan Jones’ window on level 1”
Andrew Bettridge: “I still reckon it was a few years ago when they set up a dance party in Ray Hadley’s car spot”.
Leesa Smith: “They invented a team mascot “The Panphin” – half panther, half dolphin based on a caller with a similar tattoo. Then they held two Panphin events, had a theme song and everything. Very funny! I think the Panphin is even on Facebook!” (It's true... check it out!).
Sean Jenkins: “Mez bringing his motorbike up the elevator and riding around. The stand in General Manager had to take the key off him”.
Kate Cropper: “I still really like the Kenny OB and the lead up to bringing him out from Japan”.
Colreavy: “I actually used to call up about 8 years ago on my way to work. Merrick gave me the nickname Manthony, the male Gigolo from Narabeen. I won World series Merrick and Rosso for 10 weeks in a row. It was a long drive to work so I had plenty of time to kill. I couldn’t have got through it without the boys.”
Adam Williscroft: “Merrick riding his motorbike into the office, Kate getting her nipple pierced, Muck Up Day and Rosso’s pensioner body slide”.
What we really want to know is YOUR favourite moment. What made you laugh so much you nearly needed a nappy, what made you cry, what made you gasp… and what will you remember most fondly when the team hang up their headphones on Friday. Leave your memories in the comments section below...
