AUSTRALIA Day wouldn’t be Australia Day without the Triple J Hottest 100 countdown providing the soundtrack to the festivities. Just because you’re in the UK this Australia Day, doesn’t mean you have to miss all the fun.
Triple J will be counting down the top 100 songs as voted by the public from Midday (AEDT) in Australia on 26 January. The corresponding GMT time here in the UK is 1am Saturday 26 January.
That is, when you go to bed Friday night (or don’t go to bed at all), you’ll wake up Saturday morning, and miraculously the Countdown will be part of the way through! How far through really depends on what time you want to get up.
The broadcast will be able to be streamed from the Triple J website at www.abc.net.au/triplej, so at least you’ll be able to get your Australia Day off to a great start by tuning in early on Saturday morning.
Instructions on the ABC website recommends having Flash Player or Windows Media Player ready to go.
“If you live overseas you can stream the countdown live or on demand in two hour blocks; however we can’t guarantee an uninterrupted service. Flash Player or Windows Media Player are required.”
Make sure you are prepared in advance so you don’t miss your favourite song! As ABC says:
“You need a computer with a sound card, speakers or headphones, a web browser and a connection to the internet. You also need a plugin or dedicated audio software. Users with either Flash Player or Windows Media Player will have the best experience with ABC streams.”
