BANKSY & PINKY

Pinky is a strong single mum leading a ‘mostly’ healthy and active lifestyle. She has a big heart but is a ‘takes no crap’ kinda’ gal. With a can do attitude she’s a bit of an over achiever and is here to support women and getting them living their best life in CQ.

 

Banksy loves music and performing in the local music scene. He has a strong family heart and is often stubborn and honestly a bit of a s#!t. He’s an old school rocker trying to survive these modern times. You can guarantee Banksy will find the punchline in anything.

 

When this pair come together, anything could happen! For your chance to win the best prizes, access the best of sport, and the globe’s favourite music artists, tune in to Banksy and Pinky on Triple M.
