    "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark" - Hamlet, by William Shakespeare. Maybe not rotten, but so not right either! Welcome to Social Justice - anti-establishment Part 1.

    Happy Birthday Month, Quirky! As a gift to everyone, I am sharing my top 12 'Obscure (read Quirky) Aussie bands of the 80's'. Not all the songs are obscure and some are even signature songs. Maybe there will be something new for you, or a bit of nostalgia, the perfect mix. I am looking for my top 3-5 acts on CD or vinyl, so let me know if you come across them. Enjoy! Let us know what you think. Did you know all, none or somewhere in between of the acts (there's no shame either way)? Take care, Christina (aka Quirky)

    22/09/2017 Duration: 33min

And which “really hard” 80s dance craze did Quirky pick up really quickly? Plus, the “Sliding Door” moment where Tina Arena could have been Chenille’s sister-in-law.

    05/06/2017 Duration: 31min
