    The subtitle of The Down Under Hour is "music from Australia." That's a lot of music, including - well - everything.

    To Her Door - Paul Kelly and the Coloured Girls, from their 1987 album Under The Sun. This version from a US CD rebranded Paul Kelly and the Messengers.

    Hey Now


    Two songs from the debut LP by the Ronson Hangup, 2009. This is a super-group of sorts whose members have played with so many other great bands, too many to list here. Worth checking out.

    Trick Of The Light - That Gold Street Sound. From 2019, available in several formats, this is a concert version via YouTube.

    Journeyman - Rebecca’s Empire, from a 1995 EP, Take A Look At Happiness.

    Bowling Brings Out The Swinger In You - the Twilights. This, via YouTube, is a song from 1967 commissioned to promote the sport of bowling. Despite the silly topic, the Twilights were a real and influential 1960s and featured Glenn Shorrock (Little River Band) on vocals and Terry Britten (Michael Jackson, Tina Turner) on guitar.

    Outro: Contention City, from an album by Baby Langston.
