About aussie_mike

I'm an Aussie now back in San Diego, California with my lovely wife Suzie. We met some years ago at the annual Australian Jazz Convention in Adelaide, South Australia. A long-time fan of Dixieland/Trad Jazz and Ragtime, I had my own Public Broadcast Radio Show back in West Australia for about 10 years, broadcasting once a week for three hours, live-to-air, including guest artists and visitors. My show will feature only Australian bands and musicians playing dixieland and ragtime, including some never-before-heard Australian compositions. Feel free to contact me and let me know how you like the music and the artists. I now have a Blog at http://aussiedixieland.blogspot.com/ Feel free to visit and leave a comment!

Green Jar Grind, Noalimba Breakout, Sunset Cafe Stomp, Waltzing Matilda, Up To No Good - these are among my favourite tunes. Noalimba Breakout was an Original Tune Competition winner at the annual Australian Jazz Convention, written by Eric Holroyd, Trumpet, and is a reflection of the feeling of some of the attendees at that convention, when accomodation was in a former Migrant Hostel. I attended that year and heard some call the venue Stalag Luft XIII ! But the convention was great, as it is every year! The week between Christmas Day and New Year's Day! It's the longest running Jazz Festival/Convention in the world, running since 1946!!
