Julie. As per your suggestion we had our Irish and Scottish theme night on Friday 26 March 2010...och aye the noo, to be sure to be sure !

A good time was had by all .
In addition, we added (T)hanks for the memories tunes . Some were by Hank Snow, Hank Locklin, Hank Dylan , Hank Williams, Hank Denver ...in fact after a while I began to suspect that some of these may have had very dubious connections to any Hank at all ( but what would I know )

Best wishes

Hi All,

There are now three videos from the Linwood House gig last month.

Go to the videos page on the left.

Unfortunately I had to compress the files to put them up on the site so have lost some of their quality but is still enjoyable to watch.

Thanks to our friends who provided the video.

Hi Samantha

The broadcast area is basically Parramatta, Holroyd and Baulkham Hills LGAs and being a community radio can't have too strong a signal, unfortunately. I can get it at home (Quakers Hill) but with some static, but still quite listenable. The station broadcasts via internet streaming which should be as Steely Dan says "No Static At All - FM"). Thanks for listening. I hope to polish up my skills on a future evening show. I'll have to write a script (cheat sheet) for the next show. I have a lot more folk artists CDs to choose from which will get a future airing if all goes well.

By the way, I love your flute playing. Do you know any Jethro Tull tunes?

Best wishes, Peter


Hi Peter, I'll look forward to hearing you the next time on the radio and look forward to hearing some of your music. I wish I could have heard the whole show the last time, but the few songs that I caught I really liked. Are you able to share the list of music that you choose to go on the show, I always like hearing new songs. Thanks for your compliment, I love playing flute. I have to admit that I don't play any Jethro Tull songs....yet....but I like a challenge and you never know, one day! I enjoyed your guitar playing the other night, especially the medley that you played. See you at the next meeting. Sam :)

Peter. I listened to almost all of the show and enjoyed it very much . I taped it but my antdeluvian machine did not do much of a job. I particularly liked the song about number 9 coal at Lithgow and your reference to Broderick Smith appearing at North by North West Folk Club ( not to mention your plugs for the Toongabbie Music Club) . All good stuff. Ross was very kind to have our members on this radio show.



G'day Allen

Unfortunately Broderick Smith didn't appear at NBNW. He played on 2 tracks on Pamela Drysdale's CD and co-produced it. It must have been my mumbling that led you astray?

We enjoyed last night at TMC.

Keep on pluckin', Peter

Hi Peter, we tried to tune in but reception kept cutting in and out as we were driving just out of transmission range, I think. Managed to catch some snippets, heard you talk about the theme nights that we have. You did a great job, hope to hear you on the radio again soon :)

Hi everyone

I managed to say a couple of words and play some folky music on 2CCRFM last Tuesday night. It was a great experience and I must give much thanks to Ross for his technical assistance, peerless energy, enthusiasm and ultra excellent musical knowledge, plus regularly promoting the TMC. I even offered to Ross that I could be persuaded to have a second bite of the cherry in the future (I love wearing headphones!). I now pass the baton to Eric and Bilbo and anyone else who wants to have a go.

Stay in tune and I'll see you soon (very poetic!)

regards
