    Wow - some company to be in, I'm flattered. I'm being funnelled straight from a long hall flight to this but Emma, Dave and Phil on the same stage is kinda unmissable.

    Aural tradition…

    Westside The creators have underlined the importance of the songs by publishing the soundtrack for each episode.

    ditto for Outrageous Fortune – I note that Blair Parkes’ band, The L.E.D.s, had songs in quite a few of the episodes of the last three series (they also featured heavily in Go Girls as well) – shame their tracks didn’t make it on to the two tie-in O.F. soundtrack albums – Blair is yet another unsung mainstay of NZ Music!

    Hmmm – Westside sounds a bit like Wildside…
    - which makes one think of Murray Cammick and his influence over the years as well…
