**This one is something I will have to get you to ID folks! A reference in the early part of this track by Joe is made to a “Donald”, which would lead me to believe this
performance is from The Don Lane Show. However, it’s an Australia Day concert, and the host/MC was Rolf Harris. It’s probably around the same time as the other tracks in this update (circa 1981) but I’m not 100%. Over to you!

Greetings folks,

At this point I must say a very big thankyou to three individuals who have helped me suss out the date for the last video update’s Super 66 draw track with Sandy Roberts.

Firstly, two of my twitter followers, @FlemishDog and @onlyapaprmoon, who are absolutely brilliant and are doing the same thing as us – going through old tapes and grabbing stuff – they checked and re-checked things for me and came up with the fact the draw number was 210, and was from May 7th 1983. Then a long time mate, Samuel Gordon-Stewart (over at Samuel’s Blog) came to the party, who went out and did 2 hours of research and also came up with May 7th 1983, and was also kind enough to send back some photocopies/scans of some Victorian papers and some other tidbits.

You guys are absolutely sensational and I can’t thank you all enough for doing this for me – it makes things so much easier ID’ing this stuff down the track if I ever need to present it again in some way, shape or form. A million and one thankyou’s!

An eBay purchase recently with a whole bunch of bits and pieces included a small 1/4″ audio reel, quite dusty and not in the best shape, but after a clean I was able to run it through, and salvage what was there. Quality isn’t the best as it was recorded at 1 7/8 ips in quarter-track, but here’s just a small sample anyway – 5 to 6 minutes worth of 2CH’s “Connections” with Rev Roger Bush, November 1983.
