WELCOME TO THE APRIL 2CH NEWSLETTER
Welcome to our April edition of the 2CH email newsletter.
This is a special month for 2CH with the Easter weekend so close and of course ANZAC Day approaching for another year. This Easter we will once again present our 2CH Top 500 Easter Countdown. For the past couple of weeks you've been emailing your lists of favorite songs and we prepare the countdown based on the nominations you have sent us. It’s always interesting as peoples favorites seem to change a lot and we never know what the countdown will consist of until the last minute. One thing is certain, you will hear some songs that you haven’t heard it a long time.

2CH HISTORY REVISITED - APRIL
For this month of April I thought it important to revisit Gallipoli, and remember those ANZACs who lost their lives.

2CH Artist of the Month: The Bee Gees
The Bee Gees, the group of brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, have notched up record sales of more than 220 million copies which makes them one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
The Gibb brothers were born on The Isle of Man in the Irish Sea but moved to Manchester in England at a very young age. It was here that their love of music began although it was probably inevitable as their father, Hugh Gibb, was a band leader and drummer and was quick to encourage his sons. As early as 1956 the boys had formed their own skiffle trio called the Blue Cats and appeared at a local Manchester cinema.
Recipe of the month:
Kleftiko Greek Baked Leg of Lamb
In Greece, the fast is broken with the symbolic Pascal Lamb, the carcass of which is roasted on a spit for Easter Sunday lunch. This version is one which my Aussie family loves, especially when served with baked lemon potatoes and/or braised broad beans.
On this day: moments in history

Garden Notes with Graham Ross
We're well into autumn now and although we've had a few sunny days here and there, the rain doesn't seem to stop! It's break out the floaties in the garden or make contact with Noah!
Some plants are hating the waterlogged conditions while others are loving it, but that's gardening -- always a feast or a famine. But what can you do to capitalise on the situation?
