Clara Amfo speaks to Triple J presenters

BBC Radio 1 hooked up with Triple J in Australia today to discuss the Live Lounge equivalent, Like A Version.

The conversation turned to who did the feature first, and mention was made about another station in Australia which is doing the Innuendo Bingo feature – also taken from BBC Radio 1.

Here’s the highlight of the discussion:

Triple J Hosts: It started off as a joke, doing emotional stripped back covers was a bit tacky so they wanted to make a segment where covers were good – and you could enjoy them without shame.
Unless you were claiming we ripped you guys off?

Clara: I’ll just take a sip of my tea

TJ: Hey look I wouldn’t be surprised. Live Lounge – when was your first one?

C: 1999

TJ: 99? We’ve been doing Like A Version since – 05 or something (laughs). It won’t be the first time you guys have beaten us to things. A commercial station here has started playing Innuendo Bingo I’m not sure if the credit was duly given!

C: I’ll have to tell Scott Mills about that – he won’t be happy. International radio beef

They also discussed what you do when there is a bad session, how you end up saying the same clichés after a performance, how impressive it is to see live music performed up close and how tight the promotion schedules of the artists are.
