Fitzy and Wippa turn Human Nature into a “human jukebox”

Iconic Aussie boy band Human Nature joined Fitzy and Wippa this week, taking the time to show their musical wares by singing multiple classic songs.

The Nova 96.9 Breakfast team challenged the band to sing three songs on the fly as a ‘Human Jukebox’, inspired by the band’s new album Romance Of The Jukebox.

“We thought that we’d put the boys under the pump,” said Fitzy. “We’re going to have our own human jukebox, and we’re going to request a couple of songs.”

Fitzy and Wippa then requested songs including ‘End Of The Road’ by Boyz II Men, ‘You’re The Voice’ by John Farnham, and wrapped up with a pretty rogue surprise request that didn’t quite work out.

Jase and PJ surprise a school with $10K worth of music gear

The kids at Kananook Primary School in Seaford copped a huge surprise this week when KIIS 101.1‘s Jase and PJ visited their school, bringing with them a stack of new music equipment.

Jase and PJ had heard the school has been getting by with very few instruments and limited music facilities, with teacher Jo Rich frequently bringing her own gear from home and forking out her own money so the kids can play.

“What do you mean, you spend your own money?” asked Jase.

“Of course you do, look at these kids,” said Ms Rich. “Wouldn’t you do it for them?”

With the help of the team from School of Rock – The Musical, the KIIS FM Brekky team arrived at the school with $10,000 worth of instruments, microphones, and other gear.
