Radio Silence

So I recently departed Canberra for Vientiane. With my return to the heartland of our nation’s capital not scheduled for the foreseeable future I have put this blog on hold, at least until I get my next radio project going, maybe even here in Laos. The programs are now in the safe hands of Bryn, Sean, Ali, Dave, Deb, Fi and a raft of other leg ends. For now I’ll be posting from this new tumblr, Leisure Suit Laos.

Keep tuning into 2XX FM and community radio, it’s the best…. and like the new Monday morning facebook page - Amateur Hour and A Half!
