Well done! I bought Poop Chute on audio cassette back when it was first released in 1997, mainly because the car I was driving at the time only had a cassette-player. I got the Brown Album, Poop Chute and Eat Your Peas on CD- all second-hand copies via eBay. My best find on eBay was a used copy of t...

Hope it comes back, TM's weekly column was my favourite read of the week. I also hope he publishes a selection of the columns (or all of them?) in book-form one day.

Just finished watching Ep-2 half an hour ago. The send-up of Masterchef had me in tears. Brilliant!

Re: Dianne Butler, keep in mind that this is the same woman who a few months ago in her Herald-Sun TV column referred to the series Blackadder as 'drivel' and Stephen Fry as 'annoying' and 'talking crap'. God help us if she gets to write a lifestyle column. I am surprised that her TV columns don't e...

Hope Tony Martin doesn't read this but my copy of ANOO is an un-corrected proof-copy that I got off ebay last year. And my copy of Lolly-scramble was obtained from a discount basket outside Port Fairy newsagency for $5.95 about 3 years ago.

Thanks very much for the downloads! Have grabbed all eight episodes- classic stuff, funniest radio I've heard since the demise of Get This. The straight-laced, poker-faced delivery was perfectly pitched. The dry humour is so suited to the tone of the show. Such a show could NEVER be broadcast on com...

Snivins is a big fan of post-apocalyptic films, no matter how rickety they are. He's particularly fond of the ones where the male hero, and hordes of pragmatic tasty types, are the only survivors. Oh, yeth, Snivins is a big fan of the genre. Big fan. [indent] http://i748.photobucket.com/albums/xx13...

After the summer break, Tony's first article for 2011 is up today on SF. Its part 1 of a series of articles about his trip to London to film six more interviews for his occasional TV interview series 'A Quiet Word with.......' for the ABC. A tactless bogan taxi-driver, an un-expected upgrade to some...

At the medical centre where I work, there's a CD player in the foyer where CDs or the radio plays all day for folk in the waiting area. Yesterday, I'd just finished with a patient whose surname was Martin and as I was coming out, the radio was playing Toto's 'Africa'. I kid you not. The legend lives...
