Thirty years ago Margot Mason, pioneer of the 1970s Women’s Liberation movement and fearless academic, wrote her ground-breaking work and numerous best-sellers followed. Now she has writer’s block. Molly, an unannounced visitor and committed fan of Margot and her work, offers a potential solution – until Molly produces a gun and calmly informs Margot that she intends to kill her because she blames her for warping her mother’s mind and ruining her life with her hit book The Cerebral Vagina.

He was a founder member of Noosa Community Radio and for many years had a great radio program called “Funkelicious” on a Saturday morning. A passionate multi talented musician, indeed a unique person who is remembered by all who knew him as one of a kind! He will be sorely missed by all in our music community. Deepest sympathy to his partner, Leanne, (Sunshine Beach) his 3 children, his parents & sister (all in Victoria) & brother (Perth).

The second play was a very lively affair. “Moving Out ” bounced along being sexually provocative all the way but it turned from the exciting and frivolous to the serious stuff at an in-laws get together. Who was Cassie’s father? She had thought he had been killed in a mining accident. The truth was a bombshell.
The third play was a gem. “Call Centre Call ” – A very active computer nerd is struggling with his wiring and needs some customer support. He rings up customer service and the voice, Gabriella Salmon did a brilliant job of making all the telephonic noises and instructing Henry to push the telephone numbers to get directed to his potential help. The voice even enters the real world of chat with Henry but still answers with numbers and the usual telephone noises. It was hilarious especially if you can relate to such answering services. Bruce Olive wrote the play and Alison Lambole directed.
A great night out at Bats. Thank you to all the staff who made it work so well.

Thanks to everyone that tuned in for the seventh Off the Beaten Tracks show. As usual I enjoyed souring the internet for the past week to bring you the best new and interesting music from all around the globe. Thanks again to Rufus for his help with this one.
This week we got into:
- Atmospheric sounds from a grammy nominated game soundtrack
- Some more 70’s Thai funk from The Sounds of Siam Volume 2
- A couple of Anglo-Fro tracks from UK and Kenyan Collaboration Owiny Sigoma Band
- A brand new track from the incredible Tony Allen with vocals from Blur’s Damon Albarn
- Something not totally new, but new to me from Aussie funk outfit The Bamboos,
- A bit of disco infused summer Vaporwave from 21 year old SAINT PEPSI
- Some more Aussie vibes in the form of electro-rock from Chet Faker,
- Powerful raw soul-rock from Ninja Tune’s Kelis,
- Kaleidoscopic pop from UK duo Anushka,
- And finally for this segment of the show… an indie-dance track sampling Peter Gabriel’s “Games without Frontiers”
In the second hour we got into the mix as usual with Off the Beaten Mix and some of the latest underground electronic and dance music. You can find the track lists for both shows below.
