Pricey back on Triple M Townsville Saturdays

In great news for Townsville local radio icon and ACRA Hall of Famer Steve ‘Pricey’ Price OAM will return to 102.3 Triple M to host Saturday Breakfast for the month of July. That is if his alarm still works. And he can remember what the buttons do!

Pricey hung up his headphones on Breakfast radio last year, after 50 years in radio, and over 40 years in Townsville and the wearing of many hundreds of Hawaiian shirts.

Pricey said:

“Maybe I need a three-hour break from the hammock and housework… maybe not the hammock.

My one-time boss and forever friend ‘Smithy’ asked if I’d like to do what I love for a few Saturdays! I thought about it for 2 or 3 seconds, then asked for a map. So, I’ll be there at 6am… or ten past, depends on if the Curlews wake me. Just for fun, and the joy of a weekend in the tropics!”

SCA North Queensland Content Director, Daniel ‘Smithy’ Smith, replied:

“What a great addition, or re-addition, to the Triple M Townsville line-up. To have somebody who lives and breathes North Queensland hosting Saturday brekky for the month of July is a give me! Word is, as much as Steve is enjoying rejuvenations, he needs a break from Saturday morning housework!”

Hear Pricey back on-air tomorrow (definitely in a Hawaiian shirt) and each Saturday morning throughout July from 6-9am on 102.3 Triple M and LiSTNR.
