I'm the latest West Australian to invade the Macquarie newsroom, but am no stranger to New South Wales with all my family coming from Newcastle.

I’ve noticed the American standard “San Francisco” being played a lot lately. It reminds me of the days of our youth when we really thought we could change the world...
Mardi Cole's 9 O'Clock special
Hello again and welcome to winter in Sydney. Although I do like the cold weather, it’s only if I can snuggle up with a blanket and a cup of something warming and relax with a good book and great music to keep me company. As I’m now presenting the night-time shift every Monday to Friday on 2CH, I’m hoping that I’ll be keeping you company at some point on these cold winter nights.
2CH Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon
A very BIG thank you to all those listeners who joined us to celebrate Mother's Day at Elatte Greek Taverna in Brighton Le Sands.

2CH Artist of the Month: Gladys Knight
Gladys Maria Knight was born May 28, 1944 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Gladys began performing gospel music at age four in the Mount Mariah Baptist Church and sang as a guest soloist with the Morris Brown College Choir. At the ripe old age of 7 in 1952 she entered and won the Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour, an American TV talent show. The next year, she, her brother Merald, sister Brenda, and cousins William and Eleanor Guest formed a group called The Pips. They took the name from another of their cousins, James "Pip" Woods. By 1959 the line-up had changed with Brenda & Eleanor leaving, replaced by Gladys’s cousin Edward Patten and friend Langston George. The group was renamed Gladys Knight & The Pips, and following George's departure in 1962, the classic line-up was in place.
Garden Notes with Graham Ross
It was nice to have some dry weather over May, it gave us a chance to get some badly-needed work done in the garden. It seems that you were all doing the same thing because the phones at the garden clinic clubhouse have been ringing off the hook. Now that winter is upon us and the weather is getting cooler, our workload in the garden gets a little lighter. There are still some very important jobs to be done though, such as protecting and preparing sensitive plants to frost.
