The show's success as ABC Local Radio's highest rating weekday program was bolstered by a team of experts who are featured every week to discuss such topics as motoring, literature, movies, American politics, finance, superannuation and travel destinations. In a minor 2010 incident, Delroy received an official reprimand after he used abusive language at a security guard when the guard asked Delroy to remove his car from the space reserved for Maurice Newman, the Chairman of the ABC.
