Chuck recorded this of the radio yesterday, an interview and song
from Rob. He talks of the recent storms that hit Brisbane and
his own experience of natural disaster.
He performs the wonderful track "If It Rains" Robert's song
about the worst drought in South East Queensland history
which seems to have truly broken now.
Chuck says this in the comments
some other nice songs from that radio show i didn't
get like Iva Davies doing an acoustic "great southern
land" and 3 powderfinger boys doing an acoustic
"sunsets" a call out if anyone got em or has a better
copy of this Rob clip :)
So if you can help.
