Afternoon Delight Radio

I’ve just been chatting with Jonathan on community radio in Colac, where an interest in the sweet little things in life is alive and well. Our discussion was a real mixed bag: we covered some of the major Australian companies and the iconic Australian lollies they produced, what kids do with lollies (apart from eating them), how our perception of childhood lollies changes with age, how political correctness influences lollies . . . and lots of other interesting topics.
Among the questions younger listeners asked was ‘What is the most disgusting lolly you ever came across?’ and ‘What was the first lolly produced in Australia?’ Great questions kids!
Yes, Australians certainly love their lollies, and down in Colac they devote one afternoon a month to the topic. The local paper likes lollies too: http://www.colacherald.com.au/2011/09/young-radio-panellist-having-a-sweet-time/.
You’ll find today’s discussion on their facebook page.
