courtesy-bus Photo Steve DavisThis episode we welcome Colin back from the insides of a Panda, Funi to be correct, and surprise him with a guest celebrity opening the show: Naomi Simson from RedBalloon.

Adelaide’s Yesterdays takes a different tack this week as Steve shares insights about life in Adelaide through the life of his late grandmother, Lillian Field, who died last week, half way through her 100th year.

You will hear about exploding bottles, scones without sultanas, and the great Courtesy Bus culture in our hotels that helps elderly people get out and about.

Plus we get another name suggestion for Brittania Roundabout, hear from US communicators, Cindy and Steve Crescenzo, on their take of our Adelaide Visa Council, and the tune we’ve chosen this week is some rockabilly from The Saucermen.
