Well, without any disrespect to any of my other very special guests on this web site, it is hard to imagine a more iconic and well-respected Australian female performer than the amazing Marcia Hines.

We’d been chasing Barnesy since late 2017 and suddenly, this turned up, unannounced. There’s not much more to say but #wow! The worst part was that it arrived in May and we couldn’t … Read More
