Gus and Miles Break It Down

"It's so hard to find good mates like Gus & Miles"

"It's so hard to find good mates like Gus & Miles"

People magazine have touted him as:

A romantic in a hard body. The Aussie star that leaves women saying… ‘Oh my God…’

Gus and I don’t believe that this shining star gets enough coverage in the mainstream media and as we are part of community radio, we thought we’d give him just that little bit extra support.

We are of course talking about Hugh Jackman and on thursday evening we dedicated an entire hour of quality radio to this demigod. 

Here are some Hugh Jackman facts that you may not be aware of, or ever remember again:

  • Hugh is 6′ 2 1/2″ tall with hazel eyes. He is left-handed.
  • According to the comic books, Wolverine stands 5-feet-3-inches in height. Jackman, who plays Wolverine, stands a whole foot taller than his character
  • While filming Van Helsing (2004), he accidentally broke an extra’s hand.
  • His favourite curse word is “bullshit”.
Richard Hammond, from Top Gear, looks similar but is not in fact Hugh Jackman.

Hugh Jackman has never met Helen Mirren. They look nothing the same.

In congruence with this theme we dedicated some tracks to Hugh. They were:

  1. Sinaid O’Connor / Dancing Lessons
  2. Faith No More / The Morning After
  3. Crowded House / Always Take The Weather With Hugh
  4. The Cat Empire / Fishies
  5. Guidance / Personal Identity 

We played something we know Hugh would’ve loved – News Bloopers (Blooper Fact: Hugh Jackman peed his pants once during a stage show Gaston in Beauty. He laughs it off now.)

Till next time.
