Radio DJ tortures listeners by playing Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’ 24 times in a row
His daughter had to shut it down.
Some people love Christmas songs, and other people really like Christmas songs. Case in point: this radio DJ who barricaded himself inside his station and played Wham’s “Last Christmas” 24 times in a row.
The Independent reports that Joe Kohlhofer, one of the hosts for Austria’s Antennae Carinthia, started his 8am show with a good old-fashioned siege. He blocked the door with a chair, let his co-host know that he was in control for the day, and played the holiday jam on repeat.
Listeners called in and begged him to stop the yuletide assault on their ears. It took almost two hours before Kohlhofer’s daughter personally dialed the radio station and was put on the line, voicing her intense dislike of the song. That’s when the tomfoolery finally ended.
Although the radio station claims that they didn’t know about the stunt, the fact that they covered it heavily on their own website proves otherwise. Kohlhofer isn’t going to get in trouble for the debacle, and next year will look back on the event to chuckle at the thought of last Christmas.
Besides, if he was really trying to get listeners onboard with the marathon, he should’ve gone with the Carly Rae Jepsen version.
