Like Paul Keating before him, once John Howard became prime minister he was frequently in the crosshairs of Martin/Molloy and became a regular ‘guest’ on 'Mick Molloy’s Celebrity Corner'.

Even more than Keating, Howard’s persona became, as he states in this clip, ‘an exaggerated cartoon character'. 

Tony Martin told The Sydney Morning Herald in 2010, ‘We were constantly getting death threats from Pauline Hanson supporters, Pauline Hanson, John Howard, Mal Colston and Paul Keating; that was half our show. It was quite opinionated, and we didn’t go out of our way to ingratiate ourselves with listeners.’
