  • Not too sure about talk radio starting in the 80s… there was a lot of it around in the Whitlam years. http://auspol.info/gVXXTy #
  • @samanthamaiden Indeed – most of us are quite capable of listening/reading to people we don't necessarily agree with. #
  • @wombat1974 My fading memory recalls 9am-noon on 3AW with Ormsby Wilkins, Claudia Wright and Norman Banks. #

  • @AndrewCatsaras People I know who want to get on seem to manage it – but like Twitter most people lurk & listen, they don't contribute. #

  • @Colvinius And Arch McKirdy (sp?) introduced me to jazz under the bedclothes. #

  • And I'm not entirely sure that this visitor was satisfied or not: "Das hilft mir leider nicht, Danke!" #
  • Google translates as: "This helps me, unfortunately not, thank you!" #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin Website visitor comment. Don't worry, I haven't started selling my body… #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin Now I'm doubtful about Google Translate: "I suppose, entered strictly forbidden. Out" #
