Douglas Aiton’s program. Doug is now 75 and formerly worked for The Age, the London Times, and ABC radio’s drive time.
It’s loosely a current affairs program, co-hosted by Michelle Suiter, who also produces and panel operates. Six interviews in two hours, with most spots going to regulars---such as Jim Fidge, former mayor of Geelong; Ian McMahon, book review; Terry Lane, film review; Ian Cover, Coodabeen Champion (football); Bruce Guthrie, former Age editor and currently editor of New Daily; Colin Denovan, former ABC news reader; Keith Fagg, former mayor of Geelong. The program finishes with an opera aria.
