We’re a bit ‘Old Purple’ obsessed at the moment and were eager to find out from Joy about just how the iconic car came to be.
We discovered Anne and David weren’t too impressed with the new ‘wild violet’ coloured purchase!

A note from Joy:
I am very sad to tell you that Robbie Souter, the great drummer of the Travelling Country Band, died in hospital last Thursday morning. He suffered ill health for quite a long time, but we depended on him to bounce back every time. Sadly, this time it was just beyond him and we won’t be seeing Rob up behind the drums any more.

John’s friendly voice was a uniting thread to all of us in the outback and in the country everywhere. Slim and I used to tune in whenever we had a night off on our long...

Pip had her camera working fulltime, and got some good pictures of Dick in the Slim Dusty exhibition…she even...
