Thanks to a glitch following the daylight saving changeover on Sunday morning, listeners may have heard local band Thornhill on repeat for over four hours.

The Melbourne band noted on Monday that the network's, "broadcasting fucked up the other night because of the daylight savings changeover and they played the Lily & The Moon intro riff for almost 5 hours straight".
