6TH FEBRUARY: Denis and I had the pleasure of hosting an interview with Ross Wilson who, with his band The Peaceniks, is appearing at the Whittlesea Country Music Festival this Saturday February 9th at A Day On The Green Hill Winery, Geelong on Saturday 16th and at The Palais Theatre with Glenn Frey on Friday 22nd.

Ross mentioned how the title song from his latest album "I Come In Peace" has been recorded by Joe Cocker for his new album "Fire it Up" currently in the top 5 on the German, Swiss and Austrian charts.

Ross also performed on acoustic guitar the Daddy Cool hit "Come Back Again," reminding Denis of the excellent version he included on his hit album of 2011 "Songs From The Southern Land".

We also played a song from "One + One" the second album released by O'Shea a country music duo formed by husband and wife Mark and Jay O'Shea who are currently supporting Cliff Richard on the Eastern dates of his Australian tour.

30TH JANUARY: What a thrill having Vika Bull accompanied on electric piano by her musical director John McAll, sing Etta James' signature song "At Last" live in the studio.

Vika is starring in "The Etta James Story" at Melbourne's Athenaeum Theatre from February 19th 'til March 3rd.

We also played Jimmy Little's version of The Church hit "Under The Milky Way" an inclusion on the three disc collection "Songman" that includes Jimmy's 1999 album "Messenger",2004's "Life's What You Make It" and "Live At The Studio,Sydney Opera House 2001".

And, we broke the news that Rage Against The Machine's guitarist/singer Tom Morello will be joining Bruce Springsteen on his upcoming Australian tour. Tom will temporarily replace long time E-Street band member Steve Van Zandt who is currently committed to a new American television drama playing a role similar to the character he portrayed in "The Sopranos".
