Amongst the gigs, there’ll be a King Billy Blues Guitar Battle, The Juke Joint, a big-billing blues event, and a slide-guitar workshop and performance by Brendan Gallaggher and prominent SA guitarists Chris Finnen, Jesse Deane-Freeman and Cal Williams Junior.
Cal Williams Junior is no stranger to the music scene. He’s three time winner of ‘The South Australian Songwriter of the Year’ award and Bank’s Music ‘Best New Music U.K.’ award winner and he’s played at a huge array of local and international festivals.
We were lucky enough to have him on the program – and he was even so kind as to play us a track from his new album ‘King Billy’.
Adelaide is now the 46th most expensive city to live, according to a brand new report, titled State of Australian Cities 2011. That’s right – We’ve jumped a whopping 44 places on the global cost of living index.
So how did this happen?
We asked Head of Commerce at Adelaide Uni, Associate Professor Barry Burgan.
Did you know that ONE in FOUR Australian children is overweight or obese? And these rates are predicted to rise in the future.
Increased excess body weight is also linked to cancers of the bowel, kidney and pancreas, just to name a few.
To combat this increase in obesity, SA’s Health Minister John Hill suggests the food industry must embrace voluntary health reforms. In fact, he is hosting a food industry reform summit early next year.
Cancer Council SA also supports this reform, suggesting the fast food industry is a significant contributor to the obesity epidemic.
To talk more about the issue, we were joined by Professor Brenda Wilson, Chief Executive of Cancer Council SA.
