peta-spurling-brown Photo Steve DavisCatherine Lambert takes us back into some interesting Adelaide history about Local Trash Syndrome involving singer Doug Parkinson, The Advertiser and Australia’s advertising industry.

We also get social this week, with Steve Davis attending the Social Media Adelaide (SocADL) group’s Xmas break-up to record some voices, including that of former Adelaide Fringe digital marketer, Peta Spurling-Brown (pictured) who has some inside comparisons between our Fringe and the one in Edinburgh.

We also create a spontaneous love letter to the NBN’s newest board member, Simon Hackett. Will it get us what we want and need? Only he can tell us.

We then uncover words and phrases of yesteryear, from drongo to pashing and all stops in between. Kiss-chasey anybody? Oh, and we’re asking you to share more South Australian slang on Twitter or our Facebook Page. Just share your saying and include #SlangAdelaide at the end of your message.
