ABC Local - 702AM (Sydney)
Jack continues to be the go-to contact for the ABC when nightlife is discussed. Sadly this half an hour on local radio nationally was devoted to the devastating impact of COVID-19 on the sector. Jack framed it somewhat hopefully in war terms: surmounting adversity with bravery, discipline and patience - exemplified here by Vera Lynne's We'll Meet Again (not to mention Donna Summer's State of Independence and Bruce Springsteen's Dancing In The Dark).
Not long back (yet in what now feels like another life) Jack joined Robbie Buck and Wendy Harmer to discuss the ramifications of losing so much cumulative cultural capital as The World Bar (where he was a long-term resident) became the latest victim of the NSW Government's ham-fisted and counter-productive knee-jerk implementation of lock-out laws.
