“Hangin' Out Hangin In - Maria Denny Just came across you... my dad wrote this song ... great hearing ye singing it well done. ”
“I just heard your version of Blowing in the Wind on our local radio (KLFM Bendigo). Great sound. How can I get a copy of that song (and perhaps some others). I spoke to the DJ and he told me it was sent to him electronically (Ian Nicholls at KLFM Bendigo). ”
