Arrived home and channel surfing found the tail end of Sasha Marley on NITV
Its episode 6 of 14 and LOOK what's following. Am I exceptionally isolated or are
Publicists not doing their job?


Radio personalities Lola Forester and Claude Williams have brought their passion and knowledge of the World Music scene onto the screen with Roots Music. The duo hosts 14 one-hour episodes that take you from the cool underground venues in Sydney to the Festivals around Australia. Each episode explores the world sounds from Gypsy Soul and Jamaican Reggae to Sesube music from East Africa. Amongst the talents of the series are Indigenous acts Leah Flanagan and Dan Sultan. Roots Music creator Emelda Davis was driven to create the series to give the indigenous perspective on the prolific world music scene.

Dear Exceptionally Isolated

I cannot find this show anywhere on Fox. Have searched right through NITV Feb 14 and by programme under "R". Maybe you were hallucinating??

Yours,

Buddy Guy is without doubt the best guitar player alive.......the way he plays is beyond anyone. Amen

I still remember how Fox tried to destroy Rugby League so haven't been remotely tempted to pay them money
for their less than brilliant programming or publications.
In Sydney I get NITV through free to air digital 40
you will find it on 10pm Saturdays and repeated Sundays at 9.30am, 1.30pm and 5.30pm
It is also on all PAY TV and 147 remote locations

dont get me started about pay tv and the lack of football(soccer)on free to air tv,especially on sbs
the only channel that really cares.but i guess if i have to go to the pub to watch the mighty socceroos,so be it.
ps. looks like im going to south africa next year.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

Sometimes I struggle to find a reason for being a Dragons man Dan. And yet every year I manage to convince myself that "it will be different this time".

Try being a Rabbitohs fan and living in Brisbane! Great win on Friday night against the Broncos - our house was cheering on the Dragons!

Another great program on NITV is "Barefoot Rugby". Not sure if you guys get it in NSW but it's a pretty decent footy show.

Cheers

This show now has made an appearance on NITV on free to air, unfortunatley at the ridiculous time of 4-5am Sunday mornings.
Coming up this week is Dan Sultan from Bluesfest.
There are also some other live music programs featuring aboriginal bands, thought the quality can vary.
