I just gotta be heard!
What follows below is a growing trove of verbal assaults and quaint musings relating to some of the sillier things going on around us. Some of the material is a re-scripted, re-recorded version of material that went to air during a weekend radio show I did over several years on 96three FM in Geelong and some is new material. This is my take on the News of the World.

To that end - here's the most recent voice track I downloaded at the studio:
