Aleks Doran turned 8 years last Monday 16 March.

But now his movie party is cancelled due to the Coronavirus
social isolation restrictions.  Carmel (proud Grandma)

Thanks Megan Rose

My husband Colin Brodie celebrates his 66th birthday tomorrow 25th March. A bit about him-  he is a mad long distance swimmer, meets at day break with a small core group (4) of swimmers every morning in Torquay, they swim all throughout  winter wearing only Speedos – no wetsuits !! This core group competes Solo in the Rottnest long distance (20km) swim each year in Feb, hence the no wetsuit policy in their year long training sessions. May l add that two of these guys are over 65 and are still in Speedos – now that has been distancing people for years !!! The other two are a bit younger and can just get away with it but not for much longer !!

My best mate Loretta Pizzicarola is celebrating her birthday 25/3 Wednesday.
She is a dance teacher/beutician mother of three young beautiful kids. We met at ballet classes as kids. She Is an absolute legend! Happy birthday Loret! From Marika

Today is our beautiful daughter Lenie’s 7th bday. Managing the disappointment of a young child can be devastating. All her celebrations have been cancelled including her friends from school and her extended family. Through the tears this week there will be rainbows to come. Old enough to be disappointed, young enough to forget…

happy 50th zoe, love mum and dad, sorry we can’t be with you

Hi Ross and John, would love you to give my awesome partner Helmut a big shout out for his 60th birthday Wednesday 25th from his wonderful family and friends – Thanks, Kerree

Fiona wishes partner Steve a happy 56th. He loves the bombers, birds (the feathered kind) and beer.

A double birthday celebration for our family on the 25th . My daughter Kate turning 25 and my niece Ziggy ( Sigourney) turning 21. Zig has had to cancel her 21st party and overseas plans this year. All well and are in good spirits.

Marlena’s friend Jane is 60 on Wednesday.  She had had a birthday trip booked to leave last Monday to USA, England and Italy. Fail. She also had a birthday dinner planned for last Sunday, but got a bad cold. Fail. She then booked a restaurant for Wednesday 25th, fail.

From Amanda – I am turning 50 tomorrow. I am a health care worker and can’t do anything. My 60 residents and myself are safe. That’s all that matters to me together with my father in dementia.

Please shout out to our friend and teammate Lorraine Camm. With the  cancellation of her barefoot bowls birthday party, her mates at Mulgrave Country Club are unable to share a red and wish her a Happy 60th Birthday. Hoping this greeting from all the 3AW family will brighten your day Loz. From the coach, his PA and all your bowling buddies.

Just wondering if you would be able to say happy birthday to our son Archie who is celebrating his 14th birthday today.  He’s been sick for the past week so we had to cancel his party planned for last weekend. We re-scheduled it for this coming weekend but it obviously wont be going ahead now.  Because of his illness we can’t even see our family tonight to celebrate. Happy birthday Champ. Love Todd from Macleod, Mum and Mabel

Our son Sam Rhoderick turns 18 years old today. We are so proud of him. He started his apprenticeship as a carpenter at 16 years of age and for the past two years has used public transport, sometimes catching a train and three buses, to get to and from work each day at different work sites all over Melbourne. He was up and ready to go each morning. He has such a good work ethic. He is going for his driver licence at 9am on his birthday. Good luck Sam. We love you. Mum and Dad.

I am hoping you will be able to wish my father a happy 69th birthday tomorrow morning – his name is Mike Slater (I promise he is not the cricketer) and a big fan of your breakfast program. While my dad’s birthday is only trivial given the current global situation, my dad has cancelled a lunch and dinner which he was looking forward to (however, I think it had more to do with enjoying a piece of sponge cake). As it’s my father’s last birthday in his 60s and he has been an awesome father over the years, I am hoping you can help me make it one to remember – Chrissy Slater

A big happy birthday to Kathy Matthews, of Healesville. Turning fifty (something) today!! Often found riding horses; or being Georgia’s Nan; (with another ‘grand-bub’ due any day)!!! Whilst the birthday celebrations will be socially isolated this year, the love of family and close friends will always be full noise.

It is my son Daniel Moulin’s birthday on 25th March.  We now live in Perth but listen to your podcast daily. As much as he tries to commandeer my car radio system 3AW breakfast wins!!! Your show often sparks good conversation from him or a good giggle. He is immensely disappointed to have had his party cancelled and not so disappointed to have school in a similar situation. Thanks team! Colleen

Could you please send a birthday message to Dion today – from Debbie

Happy 39th birthday senior constable Diana Coutts, stranded in peru – love mother family friends:coming home 1st April


Gerry Walsh 

I’m turning 66 today (Cindy)  About me – I’m a mad gardener since retiring a few years ago, planning lots of garden projects while we bunker down, my husband is nervous with my project list but he can’t stay in the water all day and will have to come home at some stage to face me !!! My husband (whose birthday was yesterday) are celebrating by cooking each other a special birthday meal on both nights. Hoping he can catch a cray for mine whilst out swimming.  

Could you please do a birthday shoutout (before 7am news if poss) for my wife Jennifer Iacobaccio (48) and her father Gary McKenzie (73?) who share their birthdays on March 26th. This year we won’t be going to Jan Cheong for dinner, followed by Woolworths mud-cake and Karaoke back at Gazza’s. Tony 

Brian Stokes will be 69 on Thursday, 26th Jan.  He enjoys golf and fishing, both of which can be done while keeping his distance from others.  No birthday celebrations this year but hopes to make up for it next year for the big 70! Thanks, Robyn

Happy 4th Birthday to my cheeky nephew Lachie Satchell. Dibby you are dynamite and make my heart smile. Lots of love Aunty Vaughn

Happy 90th Birthday today to our dear Mum, Joan Grant from Noble Park.  Our celebrations have been put on hold but be assured we’ll be making up for it. (Not before she gets her nails done though).

I have a beautiful Mum who is turning 95 tomorrow the 26 March. Thankfully Mum is fit and well and still living at home. I would love it if you could send Mum birthday greetings – her name is Joan Russell. She has 5 children, 18 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. When we told Mum that she would need to stay at home for the next few months because of the virus to stay safe, her response was that she and her family went through five and a half years of hardship in WW2 so she can get through the next few months. Mum has always been the most positive person and an inspiration to so many. Thank you for keeping us all cheery in the mornings. Stay safe and well kind regards, Catherine

Can you please give a shout out to Dawn Wallace, who is a Prep teacher at Cambridge Primary School in Hoppers Crossing? She is turning 40. As a staff, we will celebrate with her when we are back all together. She is very committed to her prep class, always ensuring they get the best education. Thank you – Leonora Antonello

From the 3AW Breakfast team – Happy Birthday to Laurel Irving, Seven News Europe correspondent!! 

Lots of love from wife Robyn, children Siobahn, Nathan and Rynelle and his 5 grandchildren. We all love him very much

I wanted to nominate my husband, John Cornish for Friday 27th March, he will be turning the big ‘5’ ‘0’.  He is a big fan and avid listener, he will be hugely embarrassed to get a mention but I think with the gradual disappointment of having to cancel all of our plans, I am sure it will put a smile on his face.   At least we did our panic dash to “Dan’s” so we have sufficient supplies to raise a glass or two together. Thanks all and stay well! K


Our mutual friend John Kanis is 60 on Saturday – Can we give him a birthday call out please, from Sarah. 


Happy 30th Birthday Teresa  Colangelo on Sunday March 29th 2020.

His family all wish him the best for his 70th and know that he will remember this birthday, because of the hardship of the Corona Virus. celebrate with you, but you are in our thoughts. love Lilli , Rocco, and Grandparents
