MILESTONES AND MEMORIES
Forty years ago this week, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John’s You’re The One That I Want hit number one in the US.

Skyhooks broke up this week in 1980. They placed an ad in Juke: “Owing to rising costs, unfavourable conditions, increased media opposition and the general political climate, Skyhooks Pty Ltd has come to the decision to suspend operations for an indefinite period. Why dontcha all, why dontcha all, why dontcha all get *ucked.”

Cold Chisel’s East entered the US charts this week in 1981. It peaked at number 171.

Jason Donovan became the first Australian act to enter the UK charts at number one when his cover of Sealed With A Kiss debuted on top this week in 1989.

Slim Dusty (real name: David Gordon Kirkpatrick) was born this week in 1927, on June 13.

Happy Birthday to Red Symons, who is 69 on June 13; Air Supply’s Russell Hitchcock is 69 on June 15; and Spectrum’s Mike Rudd is 73 on June 15.

And we remember George Burarrwanga, lead singer of the Warumpi Band, who died, aged 50, this week in 2007; and Jim Keays, who died of pneumonia, due to complications resulting from multiple myeloma, aged 67, this week in 2014.
