Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

This week my musician of the week award goes to Neil Diamond, and the feature song that he sung is Kentucky Woman, which I think suits him…hopefully you know what I mean, as that last sentence a far too many incorrect meanings. Basically I think that Kentucky Woman is a song which suits his singing style and shows him as a great performer, and so it should, he wrote it after all.

Kentucky Woman
She shines with her own kind of light
She look at you once in a day
That’s all wrong looks all right
And I love her
God knows I love her

Kentucky Woman
If she get to know you
She goin’ to own you
Kentucky Woman

Well, she ain’t the kind
Make heads turn at the drop of her name
But something inside
That she’s got turns you on just the same
And She loves me
God knows She loves me

Kentucky Woman
If she get to know you
She goin’ to own you
Kentucky Woman

I don’t want much
The good Lord’s earth beneath my feet
A gentle touch
From that one girl and life is
Sweet and good
There ain’t no doubt
I’m talking about

Kentucky Woman
If she get to know you
She goin’ to own you
Kentucky Woman

I don’t want much
The good Lord’s earth beneath my feet
A gentle touch
From that one girl and life is
Sweet and good
There ain’t no doubt
Hey, I’m talking about

Kentucky Woman
If she get to know you
She goin’ to own you
Kentucky Woman

Kentucky Woman
Kentucky Woman

Schnappi slips to 8th

Unfortunately, Schnappi has slipped two positions to be 8th on the ARIA singles chart this week. It is unfortunate in my mind because it is the only thing on there that I like.

Samuel on Australian Independent Radio News

I am now working with Australian Independent Radio News (AIR News), presenting news bulletins on Saturdays. I presented my first three bulletins yesterday (11am-1pm) and will now be presenting the 11am-5pm bulletins on Saturdays.
AIR News LogoI’m not going to put any of my bulletins online at the momentbecause
A) I haven’t got anywhere to put a file at the moment
B) A isn’t exactly true, I could fill up servers I’m not supposed to fill, but I won’t
C) Copyright issues are funny little tricky things to work with
D) I don’t want to be unfair on AIR News member stations who have paid for these bulletins
I will put ONE bulletin online eventually, but it will be at least a week after it airs, and will be after I have bought some webspace. If you want to hear one of my bulletins before then, tune in to one of the member stations, or, if you are out of their coverage area, email me.

Anyway, I’m enjoying it. It is an interesting and valuable experience, and I hope to be doing it for some time to come.

While I’m at it, if you know of any Australian community or blackspot commercial radio stations that could use a reliable and cost-effective hourly news service, then let them know about AIR News, it has, in at least one circumstance, prompted people to join as members of the radio stations. AIR News offers a free trial so there really isn’t anything to lose.

You could call this shameless self promotion, but that is not my motive. I’m just trying to spread the word about a quality service.

Also while I’m at it, a very big thankyou to Artie Stevens, manager of AIR News, is in order, as he has provided me with this fantastic opportunity, thanks Artie!

Congratulations Kelly Underwood

Radio 3AW’s Kelly Underwood became the first female footbal caller in the country today after co-commentating the last quarter of the Essendon V Carlton AFL match this afternoon. It wasn’t exactly an exciting match, with Essendon beating Carlton 28.14.182 to 11.17.83 (If you’re not Australian that probably doesn’t mean much to you, but it is a huge win), but Kelly still did a fantastic job and deserves her place in history.

Well done Kelly!

3AW’s AFL coverage can be heard on the web from their website, in Melbourne on 3AW (1278 AM), in Canberra on 2CA (1053 AM), and a bunch of other stations right around Australia.
