TIMELINE

MILESTONES ALONG THE ROAD…

Jack’s music chronicled the times. He wrote about our adventurers, sports heroes and politicians. He wrote songs for silent movies, dance and theatre, semi classical and country & western, and peppered our radio with singing commercials. He even wrote a contender for the national anthem – God Bless Australia to the tune of Waltzing Matilda – which sadly did not win. There’s so much more to tell but here’s brief overview.
