Information

Song & Dance - Camp 13 was the site of the 2nd last national radio broadcast Jun 21, 1939. They had rehearsed previously with Andy a traditional song routine which he grew into with great gusto! Unfortunately with the actual broadcast Andy became increasingly self-conscious and the performance lacked the fire of previous renditions, but Madigan still felt it went over very well. Andy was probably the first full blood blackfella to speak to the nation...
Other Notes - had to do a rubbish sweep before it was clean enough to photograph... just saying 'tis all... JUL 17 [17 SOUTH].
