Lennox on the radio

GETTING dumped was one of the topics on the Triple M morning show which was broadcast live from Lennox Head last Friday morning.


The Grill breakfast team – which included former rugby league player Mark Geyer and former Australian Test cricketer Stuart MacGill – were on tour to promote the Legendary Pacific Coast from Sydney to Brisbane.


The team asked their Sydney audience to phone in and tell their stories of being dumped for trivial reasons.


One bloke said he got dumped by his girlfriend because he wouldn’t kiss her in front of her dad.


There were only about 60 locals at the live broadcast from the Lake Ainsworth caravan park.


A barbecue was held, with House With No Steps staff cooking, to raise money for the Ballina State Emergency Service unit which was one of the first on the scene following the June 3 tornado.


The message for the Triple M audience was that ‘Lennox Head was open for business’.


The Lennox Head Chamber of Commerce president, Louise Owen, said the promotion was ‘fantastic’.


In the theme of getting dumped, the schedule to catch the flight was so tight that as soon as the show was over, Geyer and MacGill jumped straight on the bus, leaving little time to talk to locals who went to the show.
