Bob Byrne: Adelaide Remember When
The Friends of the University of Adelaide Library invite you to an event with Bob Byrne on Thursday 16 April, 2015, at 6.00 for 6.30pm in the Ira Raymond Exhibition Room, Barr Smith Library, University of Adelaide.
Growing up in Adelaide in the ’50s to the ’80s, we played in the street with the other kids till the street lights went on …
Remember childhood visits to the Adelaide Zoo with a ride in the elephant cart? School lunches and a glass bottle of sun-warmed milk? Spending Saturday night at Downtown or Tilt to play arcade games or go rollerskating? Rides at Magic Mountain or Dazzleland, dances at local clubs with local bands, early TV shows and sleeping on the lawn on a hot Adelaide summer night? Adelaide Remember When is the city we remember, in pictures and words.
The best of Bob Byrne’s hit Facebook page and much more, Adelaide Remember When is a bumper book that shows us bits of Adelaide we’ve forgotten, local identities and landmarks we loved and reminds us that the best parts of the city haven’t changed. During the evening, Bob will discuss aspects of the book with Ewart Shaw from Radio Adelaide.
Bob Byrne runs the very popular Facebook website ‘Adelaide Remember When’ and daily blog www.adelaiderememberwhen.com.au.
Bob has had a lifetime of experience in media. He began his career in radio over 40 years ago as a music DJ, later turning to talk and current affairs.
