The theme this week was ‘Far Away’.
During the previous summer on RRR, I had hosted my own show: ‘Ebb Tide’. Each week I would have a guest come in to tell listeners about their proficiency in a hidden talent, and to play some of their favourite songs.
My guest the second week was former Warner Brothers guitarist, James Stewart – who also holds a salt lake belly-tanker land speed record in Australia. Nope, I’m not joking.
James chose to play this Delines song during his interview. When one of Australia’s best songwriters directs you to a song, your ears certainly prick up!
Personnel on the day: Dan Warner – vocals and guitar; Nathan Farrelly – Bass; Dave Evans – accordion; Jane Hendry – violin
