Andrew Stockdale announced as new triple j host, replacing The Doctor: “effective immediately”
Following his surprising attack on triple j during Wolfmother’s support set Andrew Stockdale has been offered a job at the station replacing the beleaguered afternoon host Lindsay ‘The Doctor’ McDougall.
As reported yesterday, Stockdale took triple j to task over their lack of belief in his band and others and their lack of risk taking railing against the “Left wing conservatives sitting up in their offices on their government paid wages”. And ended his tirade with the declaration that “triple j can go fuck themselves!” Meanwhile over 11 000 triple j listeners have called for The Doctor to be replaced declaring that his “self promoting douchebaggery is a blight on an otherwise great radio station”.
Responding to the controversies triple j has now announced that “After the online outcry on two fronts yesterday we were left with one obvious solution… We’re very happy to announce we’re replacing Lindsay Triple J McDougall with Andrew Stockdale as the new host of the triple j Drive show, effective immediately. Andrew is looking forward to collecting his ‘government paid wages’ with his ‘left wing conservative’ co-workers. When asked for comment, The Doctor said ‘triple j can go f**k themselves’.”
Tune into Drive on triple j this afternoon to hear more jokes about Andrew Stockdale and The Doctor.
Is the feud (and joke) over?
@frenzalofficial It’s been a longtime dream of mine to jam on “Mums Changed The Locks”! Seriously….
