In this episode, Colin leafs through a 1914 copy of the Adelaide Register to find out what was amusing Adelaideans exactly 100 years ago.
This includes the Wundergraph – an 1800 seat cinema in Hindley Street playing films like the classic, Pearl The Detective. We’ll share the plot with you!
We thank an Adelaide businessman for his kind praise, approve PBA-FM’s The Show team for an Adelaide Visa (that’s the Frog Cake picture that one the day), and take great pleasure in rejecting the Visa of Fringe performer Austen Tayshus for an appalling tweet.
There is wine from Vinterloper, recommended to Steve by a Kiwi sales assistant in a Darwin liquor store, music from Lipsmack and plenty of kissing throughout the show.
Trevor Pomery from Golden North updates us on the great work of the community in and around their factory in Laura for unbelievably important work in fighting the recent bushfire.
And Colin rattles his pebbles, courtesy of one of his beloved puppies.
Intro: Our original theme song is here, Adelaidee Hoo. Note, throughout the podcast we also use free sfx from freesfx.co.uk for the harp, the visa stamp, the silent movie music, the radio signal sfx, and the swooshes around Siri.
