The Christian O’Connell Show to celebrate 1000th show with live event

The Christian O'Connell Show

The show will take place on August 19 at the Yarraville Club

GOLD 104.3’s The Christian O’Connell Show will celebrate its 1000th show in August with The Christian O’Connell Show, LIVE on Stage.

On Friday, August 19 at the Yarraville Club, the night will include everything that listeners have learnt to love about the show, as well as a few surprises. 

Limited tickets are available to purchase here with all proceeds from tickets being donated to Backpacks 4 VIC Kids, a Victorian charity providing essential material aid to displaced children. The Christian O’Connell Show has previously worked with the organisation, raising $274,033 to help local children in crisis.

Of the exciting milestone for the show, host Christian O’Connell said, “I want to do something where we can celebrate 1000 shows with our listeners, more to say thank you. If you don’t listen to the show, support the show, tell your friends about it or give it a chance here, the life that I love isn’t here for me and my family.

“More importantly, we will be using the live show as an opportunity to raise much-needed funds for Backpacks 4 Kids. People can’t afford to keep their light on at the moment with rising utility bills and interest rates. It is heartbreaking.  All the money raised from ticket sales will go straight to helping local kids in need.”

Christian also recently celebrated his 25th anniversary in radio, first joining GOLD 104.3 in 2018 after a successful career in the UK, where he was the youngest ever inductee into the UK’s Radio Academy Hall of Fame.

The Christian O’Connell Show can be heard on GOLD104.3 from 6-9 am.

Last month, the show celebrated 5 years on the air. 

O’Connell thanked his co-hosts, Jack Post and Patrina Jones, for their support to the show over the years and his dedicated audience.

“It’s been, for me, a tremendous and incredibly exciting five years…” O’Connell said of his time with the Gold 104.3 show.

“For me, when I look back about who I was when I got here, that feels like ten Christian’s ago…We’re changing, you’re shedding skins, and you are growing. You only get to grow through challenges and trials.

“The last five years have been the hardest of my life, but I’m telling you now, in the same way, I’ve never enjoyed my life or radio more than since moving here.”
