Conscious that I sometimes share material on other platforms that never makes “the cut” here on my blog, I will start sharing a few bits and pieces here also. These are the tweets, posts, and observations that still seem relevant at the end of each month. Lots of ephemera, but hopefully still quite entertaining.
March 14 : Checking Mark Macgowan’s page on Wikipedia, and interested to read he was born in Newcastle raised in Casino, going to primary school and high school. Checking in with my cousins to see if they went to school with him.
March 14 : You know what really annoys me? (on a Sunday night) People who say, “Sorry, I never read emails” or “I never check voice mails” or “Oh no, I never answer calls I don’t know” etc etc. I could go on. How on earth do you do your job as a journalist?
March 21 : Talkback Radio Tip #1 : Callers: If you’re driving, pull over, and pick up the phone. Producers? Don’t put them to air unless they do. Sometimes there’s “context” but generally hands-free driving calls sound like shit, and people can’t understand what they’re saying.
March 24 : Two of my friends work in administrative areas of Transport for NSW, and are subject to random alcohol and drug tests. They’re not train drivers. They tell me they accept it’s in the best interests of everyone to have a zero approach to D&A. https://transport.nsw.gov.au/system/files/media/documents/2018/code-of-conduct-transport.pdf
