Andrew Stockdale announced asnew triple j host, replacingThe Doctor: "effectiveimmediately"

Following his surprising attack on triple j during Wolfmother’s support set Andrew Stockdale has been offered a job at the station replacing the beleaguered afternoon host Lindsay ‘The Doctor’ McDougall.

As reported yesterday, Stockdale took triple j to task over their lack of belief in his band and others and their lack of risk taking railing against the “Left wing conservatives sitting up in their offices on their government paid wages”. And ended his tirade with the declaration that “triple j can go fuck themselves!” Meanwhile over 11 000 triple j listeners have called for The Doctor to be replaced declaring that his “self promoting douchebaggery is a blight on an otherwise great radio station”.

Responding to the controversies triple j has now announced that “After the online outcry on two fronts yesterday we were left with one obvious solution… We’re very happy to announce we’re replacing Lindsay Triple J McDougall with Andrew Stockdale as the new host of the triple j Drive show, effective immediately. Andrew is looking forward to collecting his ‘government paid wages’ with his ‘left wing conservative’ co-workers. When asked for comment, The Doctor said ‘triple j can go f**k themselves’.”

Tune into Drive on triple j this afternoon to hear more jokes about Andrew Stockdale and The Doctor.



Update:

Is the feud (and joke) over?

This has to be my favourite Wolfmother bashing ever. "What year is it?!"

Gotta love that Patton goes from "So yeah i'm doing this album of 60s soundtrack covers" to "what the fuck year are we in?!" in the space of about 20 seconds.

Had to hide every wolfmother/triple j/andrew stockdale/the doctor story from my news feed because this shit has officially overtaken The Shire for worst social media story of the year.

Doctor then proceeds to announce the song as "Wolfmother by Woman"

Why? Because he doesn't take himself too seriously and isn't afraid of a self-deprecating joke?

What do people look for in a radio host?

Is there anyone else at 'Drive time' who is objectively better?

oldgregg

oldgregg said on the 2nd Aug, 2012

someone who knows their stuff and is pretty funny.

so i look for myself.

Does most of Australia still have a hard-on for Hamish and Andy? They're on during drivetime, right?

I find them pretty annoying.

They're moving quickly into Rove territory.

The kids who hate The Doctor probably think they're hilarious though.

In my experience, older Triple J listeners like The Doctor and younger ones think he's a tool.

Do you still do stuff on the radio?



I don't think they've been on the radio for about a year?

I liked the Doctor best when he had Jay with him because they obviously have a natural rapport together and I like him by himself as well.

The only time I didn't was when he did breakfast with Marieke and Robbie Buck, because they just seemed to hang shit on him all the time.

My point is no matter who is doing what at Triple J a whole bunch of people aren't going to like them because that's human nature. That large number of people can't listen to a radio station and all like all the presenters.

I don't understand the hate for Tom and Alex and The Doctor but I can totally understand the fact that people hate them.

nah dude, got a little bit uninspiring after a while. it's boring doing a show by yourself, saying punchlines to complete silence.

i imagine that's how my stand-up career would fair as well haha.

You'll both need your own personal MAB for you to heckle and abuse on-air, I say.

Yeah I'm getting training at a station in Sydney. I'll be doing the graveyard shift so my jokes are going to fall on a lot of dead air.

That is the kind of champagne comedy my listeners can expect.

You don't even have to try hard to make jokes about hitting kids. Some things are just naturally funny.
