Gillian’s guest this week Tim Lennox (aka Robert Lennox Suggett), broadcaster, writer, photographer and teacher needs no introduction to Joy listeners. A life member of Joy, Tim has volunteered at the station for 23 years starting just a year after it began. He has been the News Director at Joy for over 20 years and still trains Joy newsreaders.  These days he is establishing a new career as an Art & Editorial Photographer and recently had a successful exhibition at the Warrnambool Art Gallery – Nasho 57: 98 Days at Pucka – featuring photographs he took in 1957 as a 19 year old doing National Service in the Australian Army.  He is currently negotiating to do a regional tour of  Nasho 57 and taking street photographs in preparation for his next exhibition. He talks with Gillian about this and some of his (many) other interests including writing Terse Verse for Growned Ups and 50 Word Mini-Sagas (which he hopes to publish); his research into all matters esoteric, being introduced to the Beatles by Rolf Harris and much, much more.  Along the way we hear from Boney M, The Beatles, Norman Greenbaum and the Eurythmics.

This week Gillian is joined in the studio by cabaret entertainer extraordinaire LuLu LaMarr aka the Toast Of Tasmania; the Empress of Entertainment and Baroness of Bling.  LuLu talks with Gillian about her world travels spreading joy, sequins and sparkle to brighten up people’s lives on cruise ships, at the Edinburgh Festival or in Reykjavik – where the crowds that come to see her can be counted on one hand. She sings (and signs) two numbers from her cabaret show You Ring Me Up (written by Darryl Peebles) and a cover version of Bonnie Rait’s Bright Eyes,  accompanied by Gillian on a twirling chair. The music LuLu can’t resist dancing to including Aretha Franklin’s Think and, as a rousing finale, Dolly Parton’s 9-5 where she demonstrates her prize winning karaoke skills.

Gillian’s guest for the first half of the show is Lauren Elizabeth, singer, songwriter, teacher and ukulele player. Lauren talks with Gillian about her new show, a homage to Joni Mitchell entitled: This is Joni – The Art & Music of Joni Mitchell, playing at the Paris Cat, June 16th (sold out) and the Flying Saucer at Elsternwick, June 30th. Lauren tells about growing up in a musical family, deciding to be a singer after hearing Joni’s unique voice when she was 12 years old, developing the show and the difficult task of choosing which songs to include. Lauren gives us a live rendition of Joni’s the Circle Game and also plays one of her own songs, Fall to Pieces.

In the second half of the show Gillian stays with ‘the folkie business’ and plays songs by Laura Marley, The Pierces, First Aid Kit, Sarah Blasko, more Joni and the inimitable Kirsty MacColl
