I have also interviewed musicians. Probably not quite as interesting as the aforementioned group, but whose stories and chats have formed a wonderful part of my week over the last two decades. I have had the privilege of talking to some of my heroes.

Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter has been called in to help with the search for a woman missing near Brunswick Heads since Tuesday (October 16).

Amy Friedman, aged 28, was last seen on a fire trail, south of Brunswick Heads Surf Club, at about 8am that day.

Her family and police hold serious concerns for her welfare as her disappearance is out of character.
