This program was full of surprises!  I only arrived home from the North American Folk Alliance Convention the previous day (via some gigs in Washington and California) and was literally peeling the plastic wrap off some of these CDs in the studio.  That's not very professional, I know, but I plead the jetlag defence.

The program featured mostly material acquired at the Convention, along with some items promoting the upcoming Illawarra Folk Festival and two tracks to mark the passing of Sir Donald Bradman, aged 91, the finest cricketer to ever play the game.
