Jim Manning has been well known to The Adelaide Show audience. The former chair of WOW-FM collaborated with us for election coverage specials, and supported us by connecting passionate South Australians to our style of conversational podcast, driven by curiosity.

Jim died on June 6, 2021, losing out to pancreatic cancer, and this episode is our short tribute. More details below.

Thanks to Jim, the SA Drink Of The Week is a D’Arenberg Dead Arm Shiraz.

And in the musical pilgrimage we have a track from Loren Kate called Old Friend.
