Tonight on A Mixed Bag, local blues man Damon Davies joined us live in the studio. He started off by joining Garry and Brent on their Boundary Riders program (which you can hear on Tuesdays between 5.00 pm and 6.00 pm on 93.7 Edge FM (if you live in the Bega Valley).
Brent is your full-on country fan. He likes his Slim Dusty and John Williamson tunes, whereas Garry skirts around and quite often ventures beyond the boundaries of country music.
Damon, Garry and Brent had a great old chin wag. Here is a photo of Brent and Damon having a chat.

Have a listen to Damon live on air. He is the silliest serious man I know.
On A Mixed Bag with Chris B, tonight was part 2 of our Davies and Daltrey theme, as in Ray Davies from the kinks, and Roger Daltrey from the Who. With Damon Davies joining us in the studio, we knew we were in for a fun-filled evening.
Damon talked about the first time he heard himself on the radio, his first gig with his brother in Glebe, playing with the likes of Mic Conway, and why he's not performing as much as he used to.
I asked Damon to join me in singing a song, "Giving it all away" written by Leo Sayer and David Courtney for Roger Daltrey's first album, "Daltrey". I was a little indulgent tonight, and sang another song called "Oceans Away", a song Roger Daltrey recorded for his album Ride a Rock Horse.

After starting the show with a bang by playing The Who song, "Who are you", and then a gorgeous song from Ray Davies (featuring Jackson Brown) called "Waterloo Sunset", our playlist for the evening included tracks from some of Ray Davies solo albums - "Return to Waterloo" from the only movie Ray Davies wrote and directed, "Is there life after breakfast"from the album Other People's Lives, with the kinks classic tune "You really got me now" featuring Ray Davies and the Crouch End Festival Chorus
We bid Damon goodbye, and heard "Hesitation Blues" from his Wild and Wooly album. Thank you so much Damon for making tonight's show such a fun-filled episode!
