About Hamish & Andy’s Remembering Project
The world has changed a lot in 20 years and Hamish & Andy have been broadcasting through all of it. In their new podcast series, The Remembering Project, the boys are digging into their extensive archive to see what they can remember (or rather forget…) Whether it’s a personal memory, a significant moment in history or the silliness of a segment that catches their eye, Hamish and Andy will look at their notes from over 2,500 shows, across two decades, to try and remember what was going on behind the scenes as well as on air. They then listen back to the original audio, often to find their recollections are completely wrong, but it’s always a super fun journey back in time. Enjoy a trip down memory lane with Australia’s most successful radio and podcast duo. For more episodes download the free LiSTNR app.
The boys remember the time Matt Damon named a listener’s baby as part of, “Baby Namin’ with Matt Damon,” going totally nuts with listeners in Beijing, and look back at one of their favourite segments, ‘Winds of Glory,’ where listeners would fart in famous places.
A good memory test about an old Holly Valance film, plus the hard task of trying to get an emoji approved. Then the boys remember the time they streaked with Peking Duk, purely because they thought “Streaking Duk” was a funny pun, and they recall the woes of one of their producers who had to drive the four naked men home from a soccer pitch for the stunt.
Hamish remembers Andy’s huge crush on DJ Havana Brown (that Andy disputes), and the date with her that Andy was supposedly too nervous to go on. Then's there's a little joking around that the Tax Office definitely shouldn't take too seriously and the guys recall ringing a Car Wash to find out if they did kids parties.
A special look back at the boy's 'Thank You Tour' in 2010, where in front of a packed crowd at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl the guys from U2 walked on stage and performed some of their hits. Go behind the scenes and hear the whole story of how that surprise came to happen.
The boys recall the day they lost power to the studio, they try to remember the premise of their 'Minus 1 Letter Movie Trailers' and they play back the audio from the time they pretended to be Hugh Jackman while he was hosting the 2009 Oscars at the Kodak Theatre, and caught a member of the Oscars props department unaware…
The boys remember the time they bought an island (or islet) off the coast of Australia, and debate its size. Plus, they dig up audio of the time Hugh Jackman may have given out his address, and recall one of their favourite radio moments, a segment called “The Thing That Just Happened.”
Hamish and Andy are looking at the run sheets from over 2,500 shows across two decades of radio shows and picking one singular talk break to try and remember. In Season 4... they recall Layla's Loot Chute, pranking the Oscars, settling the People's Island, how the Logies nearly ended their friendship, Winds of Glory, Streaking Duk and they give you the full backstory to the epic U2 surprise in 2010. All Episodes now available. Download the Listnr App for free from the App Store or Google Play. Or listen worldwide at www.listnr.com.
In the Season 3 Finale...The boys look back on a classic segment they did in 2014, ‘Ripley’s Eat It Or Not,’ in which listeners would send in crazy things they found in packaged foods, such as a double Mentos in a single Mentos packet - which Hamish believes could have been fake. Plus, Rove drops into the studio on the boys’ Saturday morning show way back in 2005.
The guys give an insight to the perils of putting live callers to air on the radio without much time for the producers to prep them. They revisit one of their early terrible pun-based ideas for a celebrity guest. Plus, Hamish recalls his infamous ‘Shoehorn Blitz’ phase, in which he would give out shoehorns to listeners who wanted them. But on this particular date, Hamish was apologising about the shoehorns, as he over-promised and under-delivered…
The boys remember some of the huge celebrities they had on the show, including Borat, and the fact that Sacha Baron Cohen would never break character while promoting the film, and Sam Worthington, who was promoting Avatar. They then tell the story of the genesis of their band ‘Cool Boys and the Frontman’ and we relive their first ever performance with Rob Thomas as they attempt to cover Santana’s ‘Smooth’.
The boys remember the time they egged their boss Grumpy Dave’s house with a listener, and Andy drove away in the getaway car without him. They try to dissect why their early prank calls were so bad. Plus, the boys look back at when they created an acapella version of Bohemian Rhapsody, followed by Britney Spears’ classic song, Piece of Me.
The boys remember their old audio producer, Deano, who would constantly sleep in, use company resources to download music from Limewire, and have extended smoke breaks. They look back at some alternative flavour options for The People’s Chip, and talk about the time they dressed as Robin Hood to steal from entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins.
The boys reminisce about celebrities they completely forgot were on the show, like ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic. This causes an argument about his back catalog of Parody Songs. Plus, they look back at the time they set their friend Wippa up to try and test drive a Lamborghini, in a prank that wasn’t thought out well at all.
