No One Listens to Your Dad's Show
‘Christian has achieved something very beautiful and funny with this book, weaving ordinary life and every day sadness into something hopeful and profound. I loved it.’ Russell Brand
As a radio DJ in London, Christian O’Connell appeared to have it all. He held the number one spot nationally, with a faithful audience of millions who’d listened to him for years. Celebrities flocked to come on his show and no other radio DJ had won more awards.
But not everything was as it seemed. Minutes before going live one morning, something happened that changed everything and led to a decision of seismic proportions. He quit his job, moved to the other side of the world, where no one knew him, and took on the toughest radio market in the world – Australia.
Why? is the question he’s been asked every day since landing Down Under. Until now he’s never shared the real reason.
No One Listens to Your Dad’s Show is the story of Christian risking everything, uprooting his wife, two daughters and his dog to move to Australia. A move that lands him as a complete unknown in a country where, he soon finds out, no one wants to hear him on the radio.
He was failing, fortysomething and falling apart.
Until he wasn’t.
