This week’s ‘Play Wot Dave Wrote’ is ‘Waltzing Matilda’ – not one Kangaroo was hurt in the recording process. In fact, the only blood that was spilt was mostly Dave’s. So the theme of the week is all things Australian – i.e. bands who come from there or in the track titles. So expect tracks from Mental as Anything, Midnight Oil, Savage Garden, Silverchair, ONJ, Robin Gibb, AC/DC, The Kinks, INXS and many more.
In addition to the usual spots (see Pen’s Poster, below), “What’s Your Style?” features Folk, Blues, Early Jazz and Classical - all within the theme of the week, of course. We had a record week of winners (10) to last week’s Braincells Challenge – and we have managed to shoe-horn in their chosen song choices.
The show will finish with a bit of Australian classical therapy; Piers Lane playing Percy Grainger’s interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s Flower Waltz.
