Great Southern Stand

Steve Parker presents a visit with humanity at it's most bizarre, through the eyes of a madman!


Big Project time!

I've decided on a big project, I'm going to make a best of for 2010. No promises on time! It's a huge job, with over 50 hours of audio to trawl through. Phew!

Best of the season to you all, have a HUGE new year!

Rock on!


Online radio australia - Video 08 - 2010 Finale!

Video 08: The very last production for the year! The lads and lass take a short trip round the world to thank all the listeners for the year.

It's not you, it's me.

Cliché, oh yes, but still true.

There are many folks out there for whom this sort of work comes easily, I am not one of them. Because of this, I think sometimes I try too hard.
Next year, whatever else happens, I will continue doing the podcast. I wont worry about audience feedback, numbers or income, I'll just do it as well I can.
It wont be what we've had so far, but when has it ever been? GSS has changed it's face so many times since it's birth I've lost count.
I want to thank everyone who has supported the show, don't feel the need to write in or anything unless you want to, same with the ad clicking and other stuff.
2011 will be the year of freedom.
Coz I'm free.
To do what I want.
Any old time.

Oh yes.

Much love.

Hols time!

This is a totally accurate picture.
