Tim 'Rosso' Ross

Thu 25 May 2017

Tim 'Rosso' Ross made his name as a popular stand-up comedian and radio DJ, but he’s reinvented himself as a self-described design nerd with his TV show Streets Of Your Town and his latest book, The Rumpus Room.

He tells Barry Divola why his childhood nickname was Margaret Fulton, discusses what our family homes mean to us, and recounts a story about school in Fiji that is a cross between David Lynch and The Addams Family. Tim plays Led Zeppelin, KISS, Barbra Streisand and more.
