That's what it seems like, Timmy is going to take part in a radio program in Australia. It's something he says he enjoys. My stepfather is also an experienced DJ, and used to have his own radio talk show on a country music station. He is even good friends with people like The Judds, Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers. Tim has a lot of famous friends too, so I would sure love to hear his talk show. He will be discussing other rock groups, as stated in the article. His program will be called "25 years in 25 days" and will broadcast throughout Australia. If ever there was a better time to move to Australia, it's now. I sure would LOVE to hear his program. He will become my second most favorite DJ on the planet!! Next only to my stepfather. Even though he was a country music DJ, and I'm not a fan of country music, family must come first! Sorry Tim! But Tim is still my most favorite guitarist, and most favorite band member of INXS. I sure do wish I could hear his talk show! I'd love to hear him roast other bands!! hehe! Maybe give him a spot on here. LOL!! Well!! A girl can dream, can't she?! He is so funny on stage, and in interviews, in the same context I can imagine this talk show of his would be absolutely priceless!!! You go Timmy!!! I'm sure you will be the very best radio talk show host Australia has ever known!!! :)
Anyway, here is the article passed around by one of my MySpace buds:
"In a first for Australian radio, INXS guitarist Tim Farriss has signed with Grant Broadcasters to present a series of shows from January 1, 2009.
The first project includes "25 Years in 25 Days", a musical retrospective of the hitmakers and headlines of the past 25 Years.
In commenting on the show for the New Year, Farriss says "this is a great chance to be back on radio again but this time instead of playing the music, I'll be talking about it. It's a great opportunity to doing something I really enjoy - talking about the music and the times that have been a great part of my life. I'll be throwing in a few stories here and there that not many people have heard before.
So make sure you tune in!" Rogerson added "this has been one of the most exciting projects we've worked on for behalf Grant Broadcasters. Having Tim on air across Australia from Hobart, to Darwin, to Wollongong and all points in between is a major coup for the group, and I'm so fortunate for having been part of it.
The series of one hour shows has been written and directed by David Rogerson of Strategic Media Solutions in collaboration with Tim Farriss.
Production is by Sydney digital media producers Twenty5eight."
