The Roots and Blues Hour

Podcast 294 from
Roots and blues by a variety of Australian musicians
to be played on the 26th of January 2018!
Australia Day …like it or not!
Featuring ...

The Billy Goats

The Heggarties

As the Australia Day debate heats up, has stepped into the firing line of The Greens and those from the outraged Left who are demanding a change. On Thurs 17th Jan announced its plans for a podcast of Australia roots and blues music to be played on January 26th. When questioned on the issue, podcaster Mr Douvendahns stated that the podcast should not be seen as a celebration but rather a commemoration. He went on to say

“We are on about roots and blues. It’s about presenting a playlist that acknowledges the adversity of the 162,000 convicts transported to the Great South Land from 1788 to 1850. 162,000! It is also about respecting Australia’s indigenous heritage and acknowledging the hardship they suffered as well. Not only that, think of the many who have migrated to Australia over the years and the trepidation they must have experienced. When reflecting on all this hardship and misery the best remedy is music, songs that communicate the hopes, sorrows and convictions of ordinary everyday people.”

When pressed on the implications of such a podcast, producer Mr Stoeckel seemed resigned to any ensuing controversy.

“We’ll see wont we! Be interesting to see how our subscribers respond. Will we get more or less than our regular 4,000 downloads a month for this podcast? I’ll let you know. What I don’t really expect is our FaceBook page to be inundated with a whole lot of hate mail. Now that would be a storm in a teacup!”
