Radio presenter punished for playing Christmas song 24 times
An Austrian radio station has punished one of its moderators after he locked himself in the studio to play the song 'Last Christmas' 24 times in a row.
The moderator finally stopped when his daughter called the studio to beg her father to stop because the song made everyone "mad".
Timm Bodner, programming Chief of the station in Austria's province of Carinthia, told Reuters on Wednesday the 27-year-old disc jockey barricaded the studio last Friday with a wooden stick to play the prank on his listeners.
"In general, it was funny but there must be consequences," Bodner told Reuters in a telephone conversation.
"As a consequence he will have to work tomorrow on Christmas and on New Year's eve."
