Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O were briefly “thrown off the air” while presenting their Tuesday morning show on KIIS FM.
But this time it wasn’t Kyle who was paged for a controversial comment – it was something more technical.

As the show returned from a song hiatus, a pre-recorded alert blared over the airwaves, leaving listeners deeply confused.
“The station you were listening to has been deleted,” the message said.
“It means someone said something inappropriate and they’re in trouble right now.
“The transmission will be back in seconds.”
Jackie ‘O’ Henderson was stunned by the news and wondered how anything “inappropriate” could be said while a non-offensive song was playing.
“Um, well, that was actually a mistake,” she said once the pair got back on the air.
“I don’t know why it worked.
“But we’re not in there now… What the hell is going on over there?” she asked loudly as another radio alarm sounded.
“(We’re not late anymore) just so you know so we can’t be paged for anything.
“Nothing can be beeped, I don’t know what we have to do in this situation.”
At this point, Kyle Sandilands intervened in a typically blunt manner.
“What do you mean?” he said.
“We’re just going on as usual, who’s giving anything away?”
He then quipped to Australian Idol co-host Scott Tweedie, who was about to join them for an interview, “Hey Scott, behave, okay, that’s all I’m gonna say.”
Tuesday’s technical error was literally due to someone pressing the wrong button, it seems.
No doubt the couple had flashbacks to an incident in August where Sandilands actually cursed during a technical glitch.
Sandilands and Henderson were interviewing comedian Jim Jefferies when a monotonous hold erupted for seven seconds in what undoubtedly felt like an eternity in radio time.
When the pair got back on the air, Henderson explained that Sandilands had told Jefferies to “turn it off,” “and then all of a sudden the beeper button got stuck.”
Once again, the couple then had to go live and without delay.
“There’s no more delay folks so I’m very nervous when Jim and Kyle are live,” she joked.
