The Bolt Report

Hi again John,

I agree with your caller about The Bolt Report. It is a good program and will probably do very well. Andrew needs a little time to become more comfortable with his personal "to camera" pieces, but he really is right at home when talking to others. Today's panel is former federal treasurer Peter Costello and former NSW minister Michael Costa. I can't wait!

In regards to the timeslot, while it is on at 10am in the capital cities, unfortunately in regional areas Southern Cross Ten are running music programming at that time of day, so for those of us in regional areas, we have to wait for the 4:30pm replay. I record the replay and watch it later as it clashes with the football for me.

Cold temperatures and Baz

Good morning John,

Did I hear you telling me that it's a cold eight degrees in Sydney this morning? Well without being too much of a smart alec, I'd have to say that eight degrees would be positively balmy compared to Canberra right now. We were expecting -3 tonight…and as I write this we have already reached -4 at the airport. It doesn't get above eight degrees down here until at least 9am.

Anyway, that Baz bloke who rang earlier, the bloke who "works for the company that does the management of the something" and claims to be earning the same salary now that he was earning in 1995 when he worked for some other company. Well, either he is lying and has received payrises over time, or he is on the same money because he previously worked in a better paying job in 1995 and would be earning more if he'd stayed in that job. Either way, he earns more than I do per hour, so he should stop complaining and learn what his company does.

By the way, did you know John that Sir Paul McCartney is listed by the Guiness Book Of Records as the single most successful commercial songwriter in history, and that his song 'Yesterday' has been covered by more than 2,200 artists. And I'm not sure if you mentioned it or not, but today is the one year anniversary of the successful end of Jessica Watson's solo around-the-world voyage. She became the youngest person to sail around the world solo, three days before her 17th birthday.

Have a wonderful week John!
