Colourful Friends

I haven’t seen the movie yet but a couple of nights ago we were at the cinema to see a preview screening of Ratatouille and these guys were there wanting to hang out together.

Radiothon is set to begin

98.5 Sonshine FM’s Radiothon starts early tomorrow morning and runs for 8 days. Money raised this year will go towards building a new broadcast complex in Como to replace the aging facility in Morley.

That means that blogging may be a little thin on the ground over the next week. On the other hand I may have lots of stuff to blog and I could have a lot more to say than usual. I guess we won’t know until it all happens.

The studios, at 9 Boag Road, Morley, will be open for free tours from ten to four this Saturday afternoon. If you’re in the Perth area I’d love to catch up with you and show you around the building. Please drop in and say hello.

As well as the free tours on the weekend, there are still a few places left for the delicious, free morning teas I mentioned in a previous post.

Thanks to Miss Maud and Five Senses, we’re inviting 20 listeners each day to join me and my morning programme guests for morning tea each day next week. Monday and Thursday are full and Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday are filling fast.

The morning teas will run from 10:00 a.m. to around 11:30 a.m. and should be a lot of fun. It’d be great to catch up and it’s a wonderful opportunity for me to show off my workplace.

If you’d like to be part of the fun simply click here to email me and tell me which day you can join me. If you’re one of the first 20 replies for each day you’ll enjoy a delicious, free morning tea at our Morley studios thanks to Miss Maud, Five Senses Coffee and 98.5 Sonshine FM.

From Little Things …

We had a wonderful time last Sunday afternoon.

Australia’s national broadcaster, the ABC, was holding an open day at their East Perth studios to celebrate their 75th anniversary.

As part of the celebrations they held an outdoor concert. I guess one thing that they proved is that they don’t have control over the weather. It rained all afternoon.

We stood in the rain watching a couple of hours of magnificent entertainment including performances by Bob Evans, Aunty Jack’s Grahame Bond and Rory O’Donoghue, The Flairz, Andrew Hansen from The Chasers and a fantastic set by Mental as Anything.

One of the standout performances on the afternoon was that of Paul Kelly and Kev Carmody. Both performers sang a song on their own before combining to sing a couple of songs together including the wonderful From Little Things Big Things Grow. The song tells the inspiring story of the Gurindji Strike of August 1966. Kev was wearing a great shirt saying Make Indigenous Poverty History.

Pauline and James had umbrellas. Emily and I just stood there as the rain slowly seeped through our jackets and through our clothes. We’ve been praying for rain so I guess we might as well enjoy it.
