So, today would have been big Jimmy Stynes' 54th Birthday!
I was alerted to the fact early this morning, when our local Community Radio Station on the Gold Coast ran a little tribute to the great man -- and followed it up by playing the Club Theme Song! Was a great way to start the day! I was so impressed, I called the announcer, and told him so. Then followed it up with an email, which he proceeded to read on air. Here's the text:
Hi again, Baz. Further to our conversation a little earlier, I meant to also thank you for the tribute to Jimmy Stynes. He holds a very special place in the history of the Melbourne Footy Club, and is fondly remembered by all Dees Fans (and the greater footy community as well). He, sadly, was taken way too young! So, was a nice touch for you to remember him on air on his Birthday! So, thanks again!
Anyway, keep up the good work, and spinning those great discs (especially like the Grand Old Flag! LOL)!
