Backroads

by Graeme Gibson

I was here when the ABC’s Backroads program came to town. 

The Lions Road, a (sadly, now defunct) community-owned newspaper, living legend Stan Munro, the  Labyrinth and the Country Women’s Association. 

All this in 28 minutes of national television. 

What a celebration of Kyogle, what a promotion of the town! What a magnet to visitors! 

‘What’s that you say?’ 

Oh well, seems you can’t please all the people all the time.
