Hughesy’s Grand Final Show

Nova 100 has given AFL fanatic Dave ‘Hughesy’ Hughes the chance to spend three hours discussing one of his favourite sports when he hosts his own Grand Final Show this Saturday from 9am to 12pm.

Hughesy said: “If someone said to me you can either cancel Grand Final Day or Christmas, I’d say sorry kids there will be no presents this year.”

Joining Hughesy will be some of the greats of the game including Carlton’s Daisy Thomas, legendary Essendon/Hawthorn player Paul Salmon, former Sydney Swan/Adelaide Crow and Nova’s Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald, comedian Wil Anderson, former Brisbane Lions Captain Jonathan Brown and someone who will be instrumental in the outcome of the day – Hawthorn Captain Luke Hodge.

All morning from 9am tomorrow (Saturday 27 September), Hughesy will have Grand Final fever.

He’ll discuss what to expect for the AFL’s biggest day, who the experts think will take out the flag and will discuss Hawthorn and the Sydney Swans’ preparation in the lead up to the game. Hughesy will also go behind the scenes to find out how the MCG has been getting ready for the Grand Final by chatting to MCG Head Chef Peter Haycroft and Chief MCG linesman Tony Gordon.


Gold 104.3’s Grand Final Breakfast

In the lead up to Melbourne’s biggest sporting day of the year Brig and Lehmo had a huge show with a Grand Final Breakfast from the rooftop at GOLD104.3 in Richmond.
Special guests included Former Swan Premiership player Barry Hall, the “Fish” Paul Salmon & Channel Seven’s Tom Harley.
Avid Geelong supporter Premier Denis Napthine (pictured below) changed his allegiance to support the Hawks throwing down the gauntlet to the New South Wales Premier Mike Baird with the loser of the Grand Final to wear the opposing teams colours and tie in Parliament.
Joe Camilleri performed a  live rendition of “Harley & Rose” and Mike Brady the timely old favourite “Up There Cazaly”.
Ahead of marching in the Grand Final Parade and playing in the grannie itself, GOLD104.3’s Jarryd Roughead talked through how the Hawks have been preparing ahead of Saturday’s Grand Final.
“This was one of our best Grand Final Show line-ups and Mike Brady’s “Up There Cazaly” always sets you up for the Grand Final festivities,” said Brigitte Duclos.
An enthusiastic Lehmo said: “I was very excited to host a star-studded line-up for our GF Show, however I went off them one by one as they tipped the Sydney Swans – except Paul Salmon who remained loyal to the Hawks.”
