Sitting behind these two people, yesterday, at the DACC, AGM, it occurred to me how much water has passed under the Sydney Harbour Bridge……..
My parents took me to see the gentleman on the right perform, with his late-wife and others, in a cabaret, in the Sutherland Shire, in 1956 or so.
I saw him again, years later, when I attended meetings of a group of people who were keen for the Dutch in Sydney to be part of the new SBS Radio station, 2EA.
That’s where I also got to know the lady on the left, who seemed so full of energy, particularly for that cause.
It was now 1978 or 79 and, after having only little to do with Dutch-Australian matters, now that Multiculturism had come to Australia, the cloggie side of me was stronly revived.
