Adam Spencer

Adam has hosted a couple of seasons of Quantum on the ABC.

You can also listen to Adam Spencer on triple J in the morning from 6 to 9 because he hosts the breakfast show with Wil Anderson (but only on weekdays and not during the Summer break - which is now). During the breakfast show, he announces the word of the day, spices up the weather with mathematics or poems and used tp play the Sandman’s Bell Street twice. (You could hear Bell Street at about 6.20a.m. and 7.40a.m. but now that series has ended).

Adam also had special times when he talks to different guests. Adam talks to Lis Ellis (netball) on Fridays after Bell Street until 8a.m., he usually talks to James O’Loghlin on Wednesdays from 7-8. Tug Dunley did a poem sometime during the last half hour on Fridays and there were also other guests.

Adam has talked to other celebrities on the breakfast show including Nicole Kidman, Shaun Micallef, Peter Berner, the Wiggles and the makers of South Park (Matt Stone and Trey Parker).

You can e-mail Adam at, he receives between 50 and 100 e-mails everyday so he might not reply very quickly but if your question is important enough, he will reply.

Adam has also appeared on Mouthing Off hosted by Richard Fidler on the comedy channel.

Adam Spencer helped support the triple J Real Appeal and he was on the radio for a while for that.

Adam spent $5700 on a cricket bat signed by Sir Donald Bradman. Sports Crazy or What? Well Adam is not just sports crazy but he is also a math whiz.

Adam hosted another show on the ABC called FAQ (or Frequently Asked Questions). It first aired on the 9th of December 1999. This show is now in its second season and can be viewed on the ABC at 9pm Thursdays.

Adam has helped write Comedy Channel Specials and Science Stand Up.

Adam Spencer has also been a guest on Good News Week a number of times, including 1999's Canberra science special.

Adam Spencer is also a Theatre Sports legend and has done various improv shows.
