The Shed Wireless Episode 1 (Season 3)

A podcast for Shedders. The Shed Wireless is back for another season and it's packed with entertainment for all Shedders. A warm welcome to John Paul Young otherwise known as JPY who takes over hosting duties in this episode from Aaron Kearney OAM, with Aaron's blessing. Aaron was instrumental in bringing The Shed Wireless to life in his own backyard shed when COVID hit last year. CNC routers are increasingly popular and coveted items in home sheds as well as Men’s Sheds. For our new segment 'On the tools' JPY visits David’s shed with AMSA's Marty Leist to get the low down. Our special guest is pop legend Glenn Shorrock who is still adding to his extraordinary music career at age 76. He's loving life despite battling anxiety and having what he calls an 'old life crisis'.  Ask the Doc returns and we discuss service and maintenance for your own chassis. Featuring Healthy Male's Professor Rob McLachlan. But wait there's more! We share the previously unseen extended version of JPY's Men's Shed jingle featuring a rousing rendition of the smash hit Yesterday's Hero. There are now monthly episodes so don't forget to subscribe and share with a fellow Shedder! The Shed Wireless is produced by the Australian Men's Shed Association.
