Talk programming disappears from the Southern Cross Syndication lineup

There isn’t much I can add to that headline really. It’s just another sign of the Macquarie Bank buyout of Southern Cross Broadcasting and the subsequent sale of the Southern Cross radio stations to Fairfax. no longer contains any talk programs, although it still has a handful of talk related special features listed.

One does have to wonder how long it will be until the “(Station name) Southern Cross Network News” voiceover gets changed to “(Station name) Fairfax Network News”?

Nearly Twisted Ankle

Yesterday afternoon whilst taking photos of the next hill in my Hills and Mountains of Canberra series I came very close to twisting my ankle, and it is still quite uncomfortable whenever I put weight on it.

I can walk, but it is more of a hobble than a walk. The reason I mention it is that last night I was planning on writing a few things to appear throughout today, and I was going to record the next Editorial Echoes, alas none of those things happened because it was too difficult to sit still for a reasonable length of time, which made it difficult to concentrate…I also tired quite quickly last night, and found myself quite frustrated by not being able to get to sleep as a result of not being able to find a comfortable position.

I don’t like being idle…so I found useless things to do for short periods of time, this (sorry Abe) meant that for one reason or another Abe, Clive Robertson’s producer, heard from me half a dozen times. Abe seemed to take it all in good humour though, and tried to help me get to sleep, so thank you Abe.

I also sent a rather irate email to someone who, in hindsight, completely deserved it.

Anyway, I’ve forgotten my point, but I think it had something to do with a current delay in writing things for this blog…I think.
