Humour - some of the jokes we're famous for ...

Ok, so the show is famous for telling dumb 'dad' jokes and groaners.  I'd have stopped doing it years ago except people keep writing and saying they love it.    There are thousands of them here on this site - all g-rated and family friendly,     you could tell them all to your granny.    Well ok she'll probably clock you with a pan or a wooden spoon before you get to the end but you could IN THEORY!    There's a goodly selection of one liners in the "sayings" section and the rest are all in categories so you can steal the ones you want easily.      

Joke Of The Week

Two leprechauns went to the convent and begged an audience with the Mother Superior. "Well, how can I help you little people?" asked Mother Superior. 

The larger and more intelligent looking of the leprechauns asked, "Oh Mother Superior, would you be knowing of any midget nuns here at the convent?z

"No," says Mother Superior, "I don't have any midget nuns here at the convent."

"All right then Mother Superior, would you be knowing of any midget nuns in all of Ireland then?"

"No, no," replied Mother Superior, "I don't know of any nuns who are also midgets in all of Ireland at all. "

"Well then Mother Superior, in all of the whole world of all the nuns, would you be knowing, then, of any midget nuns?"

"No, I would not; there are no midget nuns in the whole of the world!" replied Mother Superior, "and would you please tell me what this is all about!!?"

The asking leprechaun turned to the other and said, "See, it's as I told you all along... you've been dating a penguin!"

Plenty more jokes where that came from right here ....
Random one liner...
I joined a fitness club to lose weight. It turns out you have to go to the club for that to work.
How to listen

How to listen to the show - where and what times?   

The show goes to air in Sydney live for 5 hours,  beginning at 10pm Fridays,  Sydney time,  which is 6am US Eastern Standard Time and 11am GMT.     You can find the show by going to the station's web site at Hawkesbury Radio or via the TuneIn site.  They also have an app for mobile devices you can download from the App store or Google shop.  

Our playlists - what's on the show

I publish the playlist on this site as the show progresses in Sydney.   You can find the current playlist in several ways,  including just click on the link above,  or go to the playlist archives and you can see what was played on any show all the way back to the first show this century!!       

It's not a commercial thing - we dont get any money out of it .   it's just done as a service because in many parts of the world, including Australia and New Zealand bluegrass is pretty hard to find in the stores.    Just click on a  song you like and in most cases you'll be taken to a web site where you can buy downloads or the physical CD.  It's usually the record label site or the artist's own web site. 

You can also use these links to tell the artists that you like the song and that you heard it on Music from Foggy Hollow.     You have no idea what a big boost that is to the artists and record labels - when listeners tell them they enjoyed the songs.
