Radio star Amanda Keller breaks down on air after sharing devastating news about her husband’s health condition during Australia Day’s segment

Amanda Keller broke down during her Jonesy and Amanda WSFM breakfast show on Friday.

The 61-year-old was in the middle of an Australian Day segment alongside co-host Brendan Jones when she shared a personal message about her husband Harley, who is battling Parkinson’s disease.

The pair were discussing ‘great Aussie songs that you make you feel good’ for their Australia Day-themed Fight for Your Flashback segment when Amanda burst into tears.

After selecting ‘The Best Years of Our Lives’, a 1982 song by Aussie singer Richard Clapton, as her ‘feel good’ tune, Amanda became choked-up.

‘As I get older, I see this song differently,’ she began.

‘There’s a lyric here [in the song] and I think of Harley who’s going through health battles. 

‘It says: “I wish time would stop 10 years ago”.’

She continued: ‘I’m learning slowly life’s always changing. 

‘Don’t waste time, but this is a lesson for all of us, whether it’s your kids leaving home, your parents passing away, we all have our challenges but hold on to every moment cause it’s so precious.’

As she introduced the segment, Amanda admitted she felt ‘conflicted’ over Australia Day, which she said celebrated 236-years of ‘modern white settlement’.

‘Wouldn’t it be good to have a day where we go, ‘”today’s the day where we all feel good”.’

She added that their ‘flashback Aussie song’ segment was something she could get behind.

‘I do feel conflicted about Australia Day – but music unites us all,’ she said. 

It comes after Amanda revealed last October that her husband Harley Oliver has been suffering from Parkinson’s disease for years.

She shared the news during an episode of her podcast Double A Chattery.

The WSFM breakfast host, who has been married to Oliver since 1989, explained her husband received the diagnosis about six years ago, but the couple had only now decided to discuss the disease publicly.

Parkinson’s is an incurable brain disorder characterised by uncontrollable movements, including shaking, stiffness, and challenges with balance and coordination.

Unfortunately, the symptoms of Parkinson’s tend to worsen over time.
