* First show in the brand new CiTR studio *

Today marks the very first show in the brand new CiTR Radio studio!  I was skeptical at first but I can firmly say the new building is fantastically ultra modern, spacious and certainly conducive to hosting live acts on air.  That said, I had some teething problems getting my head around the new system so apologies if the podcast contains some technical mishaps.  Another wild card was a fire alarm going off requiring me to put on a CD and vacate the building!  It’s certainly a show I’ll remember…

* Featuring the music of The Seekers *

In keeping with the regular format of this show, we begin with featuring some older Australian music, this week in the form of three classics from easy-listening folk act The Seekers, who celebrated their 50 year anniversary in 2012.  It shouldn’t be forgotten that this five-piece, fronted by Judith Durham, have sold millions and albums and in the mid-60s were even competing with heavy-weights like The Rolling Stones on the UK albums charts. The band broke up only 6 years after the initial whirl-wind of international acclaim that began shortly after the band’s inception.
