Rigby on the Radio - Part 2

Last night, I presented a small segment on FM802’s Beat Expo. (Thanks for all your help, Minako!)

I talked about The Phillip's Foote, my favourite pub in Sydney…

Out the back, it’s like a beer garden…
A real beer garden!
And the food is cooked just the way you like it because…
You cook it yourself!
You can find more information and an easy to understand map at The Phillip's Foote Homepage.

Next time you go to Sydney, check it out! It’s open for lunch and dinner. I recommend the kangaroo steak!

Rigby on the Radio

In the 1960s, famous pop artist Andy Warhol said: “In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes.” Well, I get my 15 minutes (actually more like a minute!) on FM 802’s Beat Expo tonight, sometime between 7:30 and 8:30 pm.

That’s right! I’ll be presenting a one-minute segment about Sydney – in Japanese! If you’re near a radio around 7:30 tonight, please tune into FM 802.

Now, what should I do with my other 14 minutes?!

“Clumsy” means to not be good with your body – to be no good at sports, no good at catching things, to easily drop things, or to easily trip over. In Japanese you say donkusai.

Yesterday, I was playing in the park with my son. For a moment, I forgot that I’m clumsy. I tried to do something I might have been able to do 20 years ago, slipped, and broke my arm!!!

I’m not too sure why I’m smiling in this picture!

Now it’s a great season to visit the park and look at the cherry blossoms. Have a great time! But watch your step!!!
