Finally, after two months of planning, we present you with the first episode of Another Boring Thursday Night In Adelaide.
Was it worth the wait? Will it be truly boring? These are the questions you can now answer for yourself.
Details about items mentioned in the show continue below this player where you can listen now or download for listening later.
Intro: Using a temporary music bed thanks to soundjay.com. Note, we also use free sfx from freesfx.co.uk for the harp and the twitter bird.
Wine tasting: Highbank (Coonawarra) 2004 blend Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc. We destroyed the cork on this 10 year old but it drank well and opened up nicely. Dark red colour and full of fruit and violets.
Stories without notice: Colin reviews two movies: One about ass, the other was Elysium. Brett introduces a new Scottish friend and is hoping to milk her for stories about her Adelaide experience. Steve put his foot in his mouth with some Victorians on the plane journey back from Darwin.
Adelaide Visa Council: Before the Council this week:
You can read the judgements here from hearing 001.
Adelaide’s Yesterdays with Colin: The year was 1978. Star Wars, Close Encounters of The Third Kind and Saturday Night Fever were on their first runs. R-rated films were showing, catering to another audience. Quality live acts could be enjoyed at the Festival Theatre, and late nights were hosted by city and suburban nightclubs. Pubs were showcasing everything from country-and-western to vaudeville. All-you-can-eat food and drink was on offer from Baron of Beef at the Hotel Enfield. Hardly boring!
Brett’s Musical Pilgrimage: Brett introduces his own song, RUOK? (other Adelaide bands and singers to follow in subsequent podcasts). You can buy Brett’s song from iTunes with proceeds going to RUOK Foundation here – RUOK? on iTunes
