Austrian DJ Punished after Playing Wham!’s ‘Last Christmas’ 24 times in a row

December 24, 2015

An Austrian on-air radio DJ has made headlines after playing Wham!’s Christmas hit ‘Last Christmas’ 24 times in a row.


Radio Host Joe Kohlhofer used his Morning Show on Austrian station Antennae Carinthia to play a one-song marathon on loop for almost two hours.

Apparently Kohlhofer blockaded the studio door, locked out his co-host Patricia Jordan and the station producers.

Kohlhofer eventually stopped his “Christmas protest”, but only after his young daughter phoned the station to tell him that he was making everyone “mad” and that she didn’t like the song.

Timm Bodner, the programming chief for the station, has said Kohlhofer will be punished.

“In general, it was funny but there must be consequences,” he said. “As a consequence he will have to work tomorrow on Christmas [Eve] and on New Year’s Eve.”
