Watch out Triple J radio announcers. Eliza Grogan and Anna Bennet of The J just could be about to knock you off your on-air perch.
At least around the northern end of the Sunshine Coast.
Whereas Triple J's afternoon schlock jocks look well into their 20s, the latest stars of Noosa 101.3 fm are yet to enter their teens.
And if there is a younger set of CD spinners working live in a radio studio than this embryonic pairing of raw talent and creativity, they have not been heard on the Coast as yet.
The two upbeat 11-year-olds, who attend Tewantin State School, are winning over fans with their edgy air play that includes writing their own skits, poking fun at school and their teachers and playing music that is anything from classic rock to their own novelty records. And they do email requests.
As part of the community radio station’s youth development, Eliza and Anna undertook a radio presenter’s course before some fill-in spots resulted in a regular Tuesday, 4pm to 5pm gig called ‘Kids on Air’.
