Steve’s old high school, Woodville High, turns 100 years old this year. And a famous old scholar will be back in town to MC the gala dinner over the June long weekend, and that person is Bryan Dawe.
Most of us know Bryan as one half of Clarke And Dawe, the political satirists who do mock interviews for the ABC but tonight we find out about his Woody High days.
This has inspired George Inglis to rant on the politics of comedy and the comedy of politics.
And then Nigel challenges the great satirist in IS IT NEWS?
In the MADE TO MOVE MINUTE, Max Martin looks at health amnesia.
The team from Sunday Assembly Adelaide return with a thought for the week: Opposable Thumbs.
Our music is by locally based and internally renowned songwriter, Steve Foster. His new song is for a special production about ADELAIDE on this weekend; Adelaide Knows Who She Is. The HATS INC group is behind this weekend’s show and our wine this week is from there home base up in Clare.
And David Washington from In Daily will start the show with the midweek news wrap, Talk Of The Town.

|Bryan Dawe is our special guest tonight and is a man known for his piercing satire in the famous Clarke and Dawe segments on the 7.30 Report. However, our paths are crossing tonight because he and I attended the same high school, Woodville High, which is turning 100 years old this year and Bryan will be MC at the big gala dinner.
And thanks to current principal, Meredith Edwards, we’ve been put in touch with Bryan, and we get a chance to tell some tales out of school.
