We have one wish.

When Adelaide launches its own Monopoly Board Game this year, please let it not be cosmetically Adelaide but roots-and-all Adelaide.

To that end, we dedicate part of this show for sharing our thoughts on how we can transform Monopoly away from the ‘bored’ game and into the board game for South Australia.

You can even see our suggestion for acknowledging the late Don Dunstan’s flair for pink in our candidate for Rich Uncle Pennybags.

While talking of flair, EverettBrookes Jewellers have so much flair they’ve won the inaugural industry award for Best Jewellery Retailer in Australia and New Zealand.

We chat with Ian Brookes about rings, do-it-yourself jewellery, and whether concrete can replace diamonds!

In Adelaide’s Yesterdays, we get hot and cross about Easter via a letter to the editor from 1952.

The wine this week blows us away – bravo to Michael and the team at Tenafeate Creek Wines.

And music gets us moving, with Kelly Menhennett making our hearts beat beat.
