  1. The SBS historical docos were somewhat mixed-Fortress Britain was very simplistic and pitched at a teenage level of understanding compared to other similar recent series on the same general subject and The Princes never seemed to address the fact that if they had survived and launched numerous large scale invasions for the throne that seemed to go unremarked upon in Europe despite many important related figures being there out of Henry Tudor’s influence in England. Bumping rivals off for the throne was very commonplace, either for Richard III or Henry T.

  2. The Mushroom 50 celebration was excellent…it was as stated a “celebration”…there was not one artist, band, band member or backing singers, that did not impress me…putting it together was a real feat….thanks to all involved…my house was rocking….when Yothu Yindi performed…what a treat..they excelled themselves imo…sadly though every one is a critic nowadays ..I subscribe to YouTube music, the amount of negative comments about singers, band etc where people think they have more knowledge than the actual people performing just astounds me…it’s about their voice, choice of song, guitar riffs, drumming…you name it they put it down…I’ve had a love of music in all forms since I was born in the 50s..music is to be “celebrated” for the joy it brings..it is creativity at its best whether it’s the tune, words, singer or band..for an artist it’s personal, they can express themselves…those of us who don’t contribute are privileged to go along for the ride…Mushroom Records is an Aussie institution.

  3. I saw Mushroom50 on 7+ & the concert was excellent with performances from many artists from not just Aus, but internationally. The late Michael Gudinski would be extremely proud of the performances last night at RLA. I’m not a fan of Ed Sheeran but it was good to see him perform as a cameo with Hunters & Collectors. Early this year, Ed Sheeran paid tribute to the late Michael Gudinski when performing songs at the MCG.
