Glass on radio

On Tuesday 4 February, 2014 Festival of Glass committee members Doug Carson and Patrick Hughes are on Vision Australia Radio (Geelong) between 2.00 and 4.00 pm on 99.5FM.

Doug and Patrick will talk with Graham Rawlins on the station's regular 'Tuesday Magazine'. They talk abut the Festival's origins and aims, they highlight features of the 2014 Festival and hint at some future developments.

Graham ends the segment with 'a suitable piece of music'; as you guessed, it was Blondie's 'Heart of Glass'. Here are a couple of other tracks he might have chosen:
'Glass' by Joy Division (1978) (
'Glass' by Gang of Four (1979) (

The Network - second only to ABC Radio in its reach - offers a 24-hour 'sustaining' service, into which local stations such as Geelong can slot their local programmes.  Created to meet the particular needs of people with impaired vision, the network is attracting increasing numbers of listeners from across the general population attracted especially by each station's local focus.
