Australian Music Spotlight  

Ok, it's that time of the A-Z mixtape where we bring you the first of our regional spotlights.

I have put together a nice little package of Aussie delights for you all to download and I do hope you enjoy. Comment and let me know what you think or to tell me what Aussie music you know of/enjoy. We will follow up with a poll in about a weeks time, where you can choose which of the featured songs you would like to include.


(You will need WINRar to open my little gem but it is a really quick program to download and run).

Oh, and I don't talk that quickly all of the time (occassional swearing as well), but I had to make sure I got in everything I wanted to say!!
