In this episode we discuss the brutal changes brought upon the Adelaide media landscape in the past week.
We pay respect to Graeme Goodings on his unceremonious dumping from the role of weekend newsreader at Channel 7.
We also pay homage to the ABC and reflect in cuts to 7.30, especially given Simon Royal’s past involvement in helping get broadband connected to the Another Boring Thursday Night In Adelaide studios after Telstra had told us there were no connections available.
In reflecting upon Aunty, Steve remembers seeing tea ladies at the Collinswood studios when he did work experience there in the early 1980s, which leads us to Adelaide’s king of tea, Robert Godden.
Robert helps us wheel the tea trolley back down the corridors of Adelaide’s yesterdays.
We also have the editor of the Sydney Morning Herald before the Adelaide Visa Council for dubbing Adelaide a ‘backwater’, we get tips for new immigrants from a previous Adelaide Visa recipient, wine from the Coonawarra, and music from Victor Harbor singer/songwriter Sasha Galliver.
