Dawn Service in Byron Bay & BayFM special Anzac Broadcast from Mullumbimby

Lest we Forget! The clock says it! 
Spent the hour through a beautiful misty dawn at the Byron Dawn Service with about one thousand people – so many people under thirty, kids and families. I interviewed a number about why they were there. You can hear that here:

Very moving to talk to some of the younger people and to some of the veterans, one old digger actually talking about how he believed he had died at Gallipoli and been reborn only to join the Forces for twenty years! 

Then I went over to The Mullumbimby Ex- Servicemens' Club to co-host the special Bay FM Anzac broadcast with Jill Connors, with technical and production brilliance from William Martin and Don Prentice. That broadcast will be available to listen to on Soundcloud soon if you missed it.

A great and moving honour to have made this song and video, to have done the research with great assistance from my family, to have taken part in the lead up to, and on the day of this 100th anniversary – for my dad – for all the Anzacs.
