  1. Great stuff JTH, speaking of QLD, I was travelling down the Pacific Highway in a hire car this morning, about to take the Yatala pies exit, when flicking from FM to AM I landed on the unkown staton 1008 kHz listening to a bloke rave on about a Brownlow do coininciding with a darts tournament. I soon recognised the voice. I agreed with him about the Hawkins omission from the All-Aust team and laughed at his silence when one of the DJs said Hawkins had underachieved for the last 3 years!
