When I’m ridin’ round the world
And I’m doin’ this and I’m signing that
And I’m tryin’ to make some girl
Who tells me baby better come back
Some haunting lyrics from the Rolling Stones’ (Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, set the scene for this week in Adelaide.
Mick Jagger had terrible news about the death of his girlfriend, postponing the much-touted launch concert at the Adelaide Oval, meanwhile we all scratched our heads after the election having realised we’re set for a hung parliament at a crucial time in South Australia’s history.
In Adelaide’s Yesterdays, Colin takes us on a tram ride through yesteryear, while Steve and his daughter have fun meeting strangers on the train to Belair.
There’s also another ripper South Australian wine thanks to Sue from Vintage Cellars in Darwin, music from The Timbers – the track reputedly used on board the Sea Shepherd to rally the troops – and an Adelaide link to Cyclone Tracy and wheelbarrow production!
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.
