The breakfast hosts of Triple J, Ben Harvey and Liam Stapleton are in the hot water with their new boss after inviting him on the air on Wednesday.

The head of the station, Lachlan Macara, got angry to the duo after the joke called him shortly after 6 am in its weekly segment, The Wednesday Morning Wake-up Call.

Despite debating whether they should contact him or not, Ben and Liam moved forward for their hearing.

When Macara answered the phone, he was greeted by the deafening Bring Me To Life choir for Evanescence.

Liam jumped up and greeted him with 'good morning'. before telling him he was live on the air with them.

Audibly only half awake, Macara said "fantastic, yes, this is great".
