Visit by departing Triple J Drive Team

Cockington Green - August 10, 2023

After around three years, Triple J Drive team hosts, Michael Hing and Lewis Hobba have called it a day and to have some fun as they set out to host “the biggest radio show in the world”, they used Cockington Green Gardens as a backdrop for one of their final shows.

An outside broadcast was done from Cockington Green Gardens on Thursday, 27th July and this proved to be a lot of fun for all the Triple J Drive team and the staff at Cockington Green Gardens. The program included a visit by ACT Senator, David Pocock and a group of the ACT Brumbies players who enjoyed a spin on the steam train. Senator Pocock was interviewed as he took his ride on the train.

The Drive team set up for their outside broadcast near the BBQs and it turned out to be a spectacular evening. The suggestion to conduct the program at Cockington Green Gardens was via a regular Triple J contributor who was interviewed on-air during the session.

Michael and Lewis were wonderful hosts and thoroughly enjoyed their time at the Green. Ann, Eileen, Matt and the rest of the team put a lot of energy into their program and it was a lot of fun hosting them with many callers during the program remembering past visits to Cockington Green Gardens. It was a fun afternoon and turned out to be a great promo for Cockington Green Gardens and Canberra.
