Recommended listening: Late Night Live – abc.net.au/radionational/programs/latenightlive/ – a Monday-Thursday evening (10pm Australian Eastern Daylight, 5am Las Vegas, 7am Mexico) conversations spanning the globe with Phillip Adams.
About the program: Affectionately known as ‘the little wireless program’, Late Night Live has been presented by Phillip Adams for a record breaking 25 years. He says, and many an envious broadcaster and journalist agrees, ‘I’ve got the best job in Australian media.’ That’s because the little program isn’t so little, casting the widest net in wireless, gathering its guests and topics from around the planet—the best and the brightest discussing history, current affairs and the world’s most challenging ideas. Adding even more interest, the program’s style is famously friendly, good humoured and irreverent. Listen and you’ll learn why Phillip calls his listeners ‘gladdies’ and ‘poddies.’
