DECEMBER 2009

Hi Folks,

What an exciting month it's been with THREE books in the market place for Christmas and TWO NEW CDs released!

NEW CDS

FINALLY I have re-released all the songs which have been UNAVAILABLE for so long!

The NEW CD compilation is called 'The Jim Haynes Collection' and features 14 songs including Don’t Call Wagga Wagga  Wagga, The Fish Song, I’ll Have Chips, Where There’s A Will, I Wish I’d Met You Sooner (With Beccy Cole), Raven ‘bout Robin, Weelabarabak For Me and OF COURSE, Rindercella and Since Cheryl Went Feral.

Many of you have asked for these songs ...and now they are available again.

Also NEW to the on line order is AUSTRALIAN COMIC RHYMED VERSE featuring comic Aussie verse recited by me and Grant Luhrs with some lovely 'mood' music. The 32 poems chosen for this new album range from ‘classics’ and old favourites by ‘Banjo’ Paterson, Henry Lawson, CJ Dennis and the prolific ‘Anon’, to modern verse by Graham Watt, Wilbur Howcroft and myself. There are also a few surprises, wonderful verse not heard or published for many years by poets like Jack Sorenson and Jim Graham.

Grant produced the album and did a GREAT job!

On the 'BOOK FRONT'

THE ABC BOOK OF AUSTRALIAN COUNTRY MUSIC is going really well and the new BIG BOOK OF VERSE FOR AUSSIE KIDS has had some wonderful reviews and is selling well also.

The surprising news is that Harper Collins have republished ALL ABOARD! Tales of Australian Railways and it is again available on the mail order page. So many people have asked for this book since it sold out and it's great to have it back in circulation.

It's a great collection of stories by authors like Mark Twain and Robert Louis Stevenson and D H LAwrence and EVERY story is about the Aussie Railways! There are some great yarns and verse and some fascinating history too.

We are all prepared for Tamworth and you may see the TV ads for the two breakfast shows soon. All the information is available in a separate news bulletin!

We are very excited about the NEW look breakfast show and hope to see many of you at Tamworth.

Have a GREAT AUSSIE CHRISTMAS  and stay safe over the holidays!
