January 19 Around the Isle of Oz

Again I'm tapping this prattle up the night before.
Cos the males of the house are watching some god-awful B grade "comedy-horror" flick that should have been sent to the Haz-Mat landfill.
I won't bother you with the name, I'm saving you minutes of your life you'll never get back.
You're welcome.

1935
The Wild One, our very own original rock n roller Johnny O'Keefe was found in the tulip patch in Sydney.

1982
A double female act, going by the title of Daphne-Fifi got the wind taken from their sails by a big bruiser of a lad named Bruno (no, you fetishists, Daphne did not "finally get with Velma or another chick").
Daphne-Fifi waned and weakened after being brushed aside by Bruno and finally disappeared near the northwest coast.

1957
GTV-9 telly studios in Richmond were officially opened by Gov Sir Dallas Brooks.
Who was grandfather to Jennifer Byrne.
Who is married to Andrew Denton.
Whose father, Kit Denton, wrote a novel about Breaker Morant.
Who once married Daisy Bates, who in turn collaborated with journalist Ernestine Hill who penned a novel based on  the life of explorer Matthew Flinders who ...did something with the coastline of Oz but more importantly had the eminent good taste and sense to hitch his wagon to that of a cat, Trim.

Good lord, I thought I was going to go on forever there, thank goddess for Trim!
