Two unexpected radio recruits made their on-air debut this week on Nova 93.7’s breakfast show Nathan, Nat and Shaun.
The first was Shaun’s wife Meegan McManus, the other was Nathan’s mum, Marlene Morris.
The reason for the family fill-ins? Co-host Natalie Locke was having surgery to fix her injured foot. What better reason to expose what Nathan and Shaun are really like than to call on two of their nearest and dearest.
After some initial on-air nerves, Marlene along with Nathan’s Dad, Brian Morris, settled in for the morning at Nova’s Subiaco studio.
“Mum, you’ve noticed while we’ve been doing this job here on radio that we bring up you & Dad quite a lot?” Nathan said.
Marlene’s response? “I know. Actually, we’ve made Nova.”
So whilst Marlene convinced the listeners of Perth that her & Brian are the reason Nathan, Nat and Shaun have the most listeners in Perth (314,000*) that was just one of the many entertaining quips that have flowed over the last two days in Nat’s absence.
Meegan shocked Perth listeners by dropping the BS-bomb a couple of times and asking a Bachelorette how good a kisser The Bachelor is. While Marlene impressed with her famous Bacon Savouries, which were the hero of the team’s weekly Friday segment, Deep Fry-Day.
Nat will be back behind the mic on Monday morning, when Perth wakes up.
