It’s been less than a month since Triple J bowed to public pressure and moved its annual radio competition from being hosted on Australia Day, Triple M has decided to fill the void.
Triple M subscribers were recently notified via email that the Southern Cross Austereo-owned radio network would host its own music countdown competition on Australia Day for “all the songs that define Australian music”, dubbing it the “Ozzest 100”.
“So, the taxpayer funded FM has decided that there’ll be no soundtrack for Australia Day. Let’s face it, that’s usually full of hipsters or kids making music on a Mac,” the email read.
“At Triple M, we’re going to give you what you’ve asked for – the perfect Australia Day soundtrack.
“We don’t care about a Top 40 chart position, who wrote it or even awards – it’s just got to be Aussie.”
