Christian O’Connell looks back on 12 months at GOLD 104.3

This week marks one year of GOLD 104.3’s The Christian O’Connell Breakfast show and it has had some extraordinary, funny, tear-jerking and unexpected moments that Christian has shared with his Melbourne listeners over the past year.
Audiences took their time to warm to the show but the gamble by GOLD 104.3 and Christian to relocate his successful UK breakfast program has begun to pay off with numbers for the station steadily improving in the past year.

He recently described himself as a “fungus” growing on listeners after a tough first 12 months.
So far there has been everything from listeners getting live tattoos in studio, creating Melbourne’s very own rock anthem all about the city, Christian’s Gran Final, where 50 grans kicked for AFL glory, One Last Dream where Christian got one Melbourne band back together to play the ultimate gig as the opening act for One Electric Day, opening for the likes of Jimmy Barnes, The Angels, Ian Moss, Jon Stevens, Richard Clapton and Thirsty Merc.
And who could forget the time Christian accidentally spilled a whole glass of water onto the desk!
What a year!
