Could you tell me where “Frozen Orange Juice was on the list please?
Sorry but we only record Australian based songs & artists so I’m not sure unfortunately.
Don Lane a Aussie?
I remember watching his show and I’m sure he was a yank but maybe I was young and wrong.
This site is about the Australian music scene, not just people who were born here. 🙂
Remember seeing Doug Parkinson at the Musicians Club, Sydney in the late 70’s or early 80’s. Great show.
