Local Betoota radio announcer Robert ‘Flash’ Flaczynski has today apologised to listeners for an unprecedented twenty minute gap between P!NK songs.
Flash, who came to fame as part of the wildly popular radio show ‘Flash and Fatso’ in the late 1990s says he hopes he doesn’t get the sack for this – and says that while the ratings don’t give much away – his new slot on drive has been getting great reviews.
“I don’t know what came over me. I really dropped the ball” he told our reporters.
“It’s almost has bad as turning your microphone off during the traffic report. P!NK is an integral part of the Australian radio medium”
While Flash says that this might be a result of him being cognitively depleted due to the ongoing court case he as been embroiled in over comments he made during Mardi Gras this year, it doesn’t explain the fact that he played less than eight P!NK songs over the entire hour.
It is believed the offices of the Betoota Austereo syndication TRIPLE M ‘Desert Rock FM’ have received hundreds of phone calls and emails throughout the afternoon. Their general manager and former late night host, Greg ‘Fisho’ Fisher was unavailable for comment.
