Warner Corner – Five Bells

This recording is actually from an Ebb Tide show from early 2020. The theme was ‘bodies of water’.

I’ve always loved the Kenneth Slessor poem, Five Bells, written about his mate Joe Lynch who drowned in Sydney Harbour (he fell off a ferry on his way to a party).

Anyway, I had a crack at reading Five Bells on the RRR show. I lopped off the opening invocation, just to shorten it a bit. I also made a couple of small mistakes – apologies to the purists.

My mate Mike Thatcher recorded it, mixed it and produced it – thanks Thatch!
