Warm welcome for Bono
Second part of a package being prepared for Bono's tour of Australia in November 2006. Includes a dramatised reading of the publicity brochure for a new computer game to be released next year by Pandemic. (http://mercs2.com). Bono's company, Elevation Partners, has contributed 300 million dollars to develop this game which is a simulated invasion of Venezuela with a high level of ultra-violence. Pandemic is also funded by the Pentagon to develop computer simulated training exercises for the US military.

We had our AGM for our tiny little radio station, on October 19th 2006.
Some of our NimFM expatriates, such as Chibo*, now down in Melbourne, have been wondering what's happened at the radio station during the year & who's in & who's out & who's new in the NimFM committee. So this news report is especially for you.
*We know this because Chibo was our 1st interstate caller on our new talkback facilities which were opened a little after our AGM on Mon 23rd Oct. Our new talkback facilities will be the subject of some further postings. Stay tuned!

"Bono's Creed of Greed" - a pilot launch of one of several songs being generated around Bono's tour of Australia in November 2006. Politically and socially aware Australians are preparing a very warm, and politically controversial, welcome for the mega-pop-star of the Band U2. Bono is an active member of the board of a company("Pandemic") that develops war game simulations for the Pentagon to train its troops. One of the spin-offs is a game about to be released commercially to civilians, called "Mercenaries II - World in Flames". It simulates an invasion of Venezuela by xternally financed mercenary bands with detailed maps of Venezuela and the capital city, Caracas. The motive is oil, and the game encourages players to think that they are overthrowing an oil hungry 'dictator', very obviously modelled on Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Chavez, far from being a dictator, commands huge popular and democratic support. At every constitutional crisis provoked by the US (including coup attempts) he has bounced back merrily with elections, Since the turn of the century, he has consistently improved his majority vote, now rating somewhere between 70 and 80 percent. His popularity ratings are still rising. (Might have something to do with the fact that he is investing oil revenues into social programs and sustainable devlopment ...and the consistent 10 percent growth rate of the Venezuelan economy since he introduced 'socialistic' programs of government investment,since the 1990s ... ).
Clearly the game is part of a massive Psy-ops operation by the US government establishment to crank up support for an intervention in Venezuela.
Bono refuses to respond to requests to rethink the release of the game. Despite claims to having 'social activist' credentials, his endorsement of this game proves that really, it's all posturing. Bono has disgraced himself and alienated fans on earlier occasions: Once (during the 90s) by taking his huge earnings offshore to avoid paying taxes that could go to the Irish people, (perhaps to build schools and hospitals?) and again by becoming one of the heaviest copyright cops on the Internet. ('We don't want anyone hearing us before they've paid ... !"). We know where he is coming from, so don't be confused by where he says he's been; he certainly doesn't want us to know where he lives. Watch this space for more developments, more deep background on Bono, more musical sketches for him and his fans and the very, very, warm welcome being prepared for him on his Australian tour.

Demons Grand Final Footy Show (2006-9-29, 8MB)
Our host John's back from the ABC for this Grand Final edition.
There's Frank too, even tho he's a little bit late, plus another voice makes an appearance in his absence the Demon's humble podcaster, me, Ian.
This is the last footy show for a couple of month's, until next footy season, so tune in.
There's news of all the AFL Grand Finals thru-out the land of Oz, plus how your favourite player went in this year's Brownlow medal for the 'Best & Fairest' player in the land.
However there is one language warning mid-program as things go all wrong, but the lesson from this for all you up & coming community radio presenters is 'wear your headphones'.
The Demons footy show says 'Thank you' to our loyal listeners plus a fond farewell till next footy season.
PS for all our overseas listeners who may not be up on the latest AFL; West Coast won the Grand Final against the Swans this year in yet another thrilling finish between these 2 teams.
