Oh what a Buzz to have my picture on the front page of Cap News this is my keep sake from the Tamworth Country Music Festival
I was recently going threw an old photo album and came across this photo that was taken a number of years back when I worked
in the Bathurst Store at the Lachlan Vintage Village which reminded me of a video shoot that I was involved with in May 2000
when Norma O'Hara made a video clip for her song "Fresh Horses" the video was shot on location at the Lachlan Vintage
Village and captured the days of Ben Hall the Bushranger his grave today is situated in the Forbes Cemetery. Lots of history
here at Forbes to learn about and our town is a beautiful place to live.
Here I am on stage at Arrow Town New Zealand with Dusty Spittle,Desree Crawford,Micheal Green, Peter Horan and members of
the Shotover Country Music Club. These memories will live with me forever as my trip to NZ also took me to the Gold Guitar
Awards at Gore where I performed to a packed stadium and recieved a standing ovation and I also performed at many other venues
in the south island while there.
The next photo was taken at the Lachlan Vintage at Forbes when we first set up the radio
station this was our first permanent studio. The station was then moved to the Parkes Road where it remains today.

who blew out the lights at Bungendore but like a trouper she asked for some candles to light the stage at the Lake George
Hotel so she could continue her show.For two hours she performed to a pack hotel without power and the crowd just loved getting
in on the act and being part of the show with some of the activites.
