Brendan ‘Jonesy’ Jones and Amanda Keller have wrapped up their radio show for the year but will be returning to listeners over the summer in the form of a new podcast Jonesy & Amanda’s Holiday Book Club.
In the podcast, Jonesy and Amanda will read sections of their memoirs and discuss the juicy details that didn’t make it into the book. Nothing is off limits as they each reveal some of the most defining moments of their life, from the first time they fell in love through to the moment their friendship was almost ruined forever.
Jonesy and Amanda have been friends for over 20 years, but during recording, they learnt some very intimate, heartbreaking and powerful things they didn’t know about each another.
Each week two episodes will be released, on Tuesday and Friday, as the pair delve into never-before shared stories from their childhood and teen years through to starting a family and how they became one of Australia’s most loved radio duos.
WSFM content director Mike Byrne said, “Jonesy & Amanda’s Holiday Book Club is a great example of how ARN’s key on-air talent can offer their audience and clients a different way to connect when they aren’t on air. Jonesy and Amanda share some incredibly warm, fun and also at times raw moments during in-depth discussions that wouldn’t be possible to fit in during their breakfast show, which really showcases how podcasts are an important complement to a live radio offering for both audiences and commercial clients.”
