When Ian ′Macca′ McNamara decided to hit the road and meet some of the almost two million listeners who tune into his ABC Local Radio show each week, little did he know that his Say G′Day Tour would become the experience of a lifetime. In two road trips across Australia, the hugely popular presenter of Australia All Over talked to and interviewed thousands of listeners of all ages singing songs, reciting poems, and reading letters, faxes and emails as he went. And when his Say G′day van rocked up in towns large and small and set up for his many outside broadcasts, it was standing room only. SAY G′DAY captures all the best moments of the tour in words and pictures. Like the show, it is an eclectic and endearing mix of hundreds of anecdotes, personal stories, poems and snapshots of life across this vast continent. There′s something here for everyone - plenty of humour, some great interviews and characters, and larrikin charm - a real celebration of the Aussie spirit. As a special bonus (and something Macca has always wanted to do) the book features a CD of some of his favourite interviews, including the legendary Gilbert Bennion.
