We take our podcast to new heights this week, recording in the upstairs tasting room of the Melbourne Street Fine Wine Cellars in North Adelaide.
We are also graced by the presence of John Swanson, the owner of the cellars and one of the most respected palates in Adelaide.
He not only walks us through the South Australian Drink Of The Week but also:
- Advocates for modern style Chardonnay
- Describes how your microwave oven can improve your wine
- Shares some secrets about Cabernet Sauvignon
- Implores Steve to eat fish in a certain way
We also catch up with another Adelaide favourite, Keith Conlon, for an update on his life after 13 years of breakfast radio at FIVEaa. You’ll find out what he’s currently ‘peddling’ and who he’s doing it with!
Is It News returns with Susan, a former Adelaidean has some profound parenting advice published, Greg Fleet responds to the rejection of his Adelaide Visa, and Susan Lily not only plays her new single, Daisy Jane, but also talks about the process of promoting a single around the world when you are an independent artist.
