In Conversation

Andrew OkeefeTransport of Delight, The Gasman came to call, Glorious Mud… if any of these mean something to you then you’re surely a fan of Flanders and Swan. That glorious comic duo passed away some years ago, but we are going to recreate them for an hour on Wednesday 27 May at 2pm when In Conversations is joined by Andrew O’Keefe – nephew of the wild one – and pianist Glenn Amer. It’s bound to be a riot.

 In Conversation is presented by one of Australia's best interviewers - veteran of print, film and broadcast media, Michael Morton-Evans

 This Fine Music 102.5 one hour program is presented LIVE each Wednesday at 2pm. In Conversation delivers the stories behind the sounds. It's where you'll meet the      world's great  musicians, singers, composers, conductors along with up-and-comers and those who influence the arts landscape.
