Stan Grant is a TV journalist, author and proud Wiradjuri man. He’s also a complete music nerd.

He tells Barry Divola about how certain songs are inextricably tied to his past – attending 15 primary schools as his itinerant family moved around the country, seeing Johnny Cash play live as a kid, and watching the scenery roll by from the back of a car as the radio soundtracked his life. Stan plays Glen Campbell, George Harrison, The Kinks and more.
