    1. Singer/actress/TV personality who was very prominent from the early 80s-earlier this century. Google “Chantoozies”. IIRC there’s a family connection to Olivia Newton-John too.

  1. Wonderful picture of Robyn Nevin, David. Perfection!. Delighted for her. Great to see Sean Dorney get recognition for a long distinguished career as an intrepid foreign correspondent. Also great to see one time pin up boy Ray Burgess recognised. Really nice man.

    Robyn Nevin is a national treasure. Every form of entertainment in Australia has been conquered by her. Immense talent.
