This week’s theme was ‘Theft’.
Kev Carmody is one of Australia’s great protest-song writers. This one, Thou Shalt Not Steal, takes the so-called moral lessons of the bible and throws them back in the face of the hypocrites.
We obviously need more protest and more protest-songs…

This week’s theme was ‘Maggie’.
Only a couple of Maggie songs came to mind. I look too much like Rod Stewart to sing Maggie May, so I settled for the other one…
Thanks to Dave and Nath.

This week’s theme was ‘Ruby’.
In past segments, over the years, I’d already played Tom Waits’s ‘Ruby’s Arms’ and The Felice Bros’ ‘Ruby Mae’. I’d always been a fan of Melanie’s version of The Stones’ ‘Ruby Tuesday’ – so I thought we could give that a crack.
Luckily, Georgie Darvidis came in and saved the day.

The theme today was ‘Pictures’.
I played one of my own songs a few weeks back so, this Sunday, I thought I might roll the dice again.
A stripped-back Warner Corner band played a version of ‘A Likeness’ – the leading track from my first solo album, ‘A Likeness of You’.
The lyrics refer to the objects secreted away in someone’s bag – hopefully the simple list tells some sort of story…
Thanks to Nath, Ed and Thatch

The theme today was ‘Said, Say, Saying’.
I realised I’d written one of these myself many years ago – in the late 80s, early 90s – one of my first songs for The Warner Brothers.
Very chuffed at RRR this day that Dave Evans had learned the Marcel Borrack arrangement from my Night Parrots album.
Thanks Dave! And thanks to my webmaster Thatch for the brilliant EQ.
