" is the name of a popular segment on the Afternoon Show
of an Australian radio station, Triple J
Hosted by Merrick and Rosso, the segment asks listeners to email or ring the station and "dob in" those stingy, frugal and down-right crazy people who'll do anything to save a few cents. The name of the section comes from the half-price movie tickets which can bought on Tuesday nights around Oz, thus attracting many "tightarses" to the cinemas at this time.
There are many sick people out there who are just in it for the money... this program unearths them all.
