Above – Me recording live at Westiefield

Above – Looking up at where I recorded from. It is in the blue section to the left of the Westfield sign on the upper level.

Above – Christmas Tree.

Above – Until the Westfield Group purchased the centre in 2005, the centre was known as Penrith Plaza (or simply “The Plaza”). This name has been partly retained as the centre is now officially known as Westfield Penrith Plaza or Westfield Penrith. Or as I refer to it, Westiefield.

  1. I’m still finding the free train knowledge to be really interesting.
    Oh, hey, it’s Squeak! I just finished listening to one of his shows, moments ago.

    The “Q” word is a dangerous one! It holds power even in the retail McJob that I work at. Watch out! All hell breaks lose after the “Q” word is evoked!

    You kept saying “sitting up” instead of “standing up”. Sounds like dyslexia struck you this episode, Erk. Welcome ot my world. Fun, isn’t it?

    The siren was a nice touch. Haven’t heard one of those in a podcast yet.

    Great show!
