Stu’s Views Episode 07: Christine



Hey all, Stu here. So, here is the third in the 3 episodes I promised to get to you with in a week... I fell a few days over time - oh well.

Anyway, to make up for that, the view for this time around, is the fascinating, but utterly tragic tale, of real life of 1970's News presenter / Journalist 'Christine Chubbuck'.

On this one, I discuss the events leading up to the finale in Chubbucks life, and of course, I discuss the film that centres on her. It's an interesting watch, led by the powerhouse performance of Rebecca Hall as Christine Chubbuck.

Sit back, listen on, and learn about this fascinating, but tragic woman.

See ya next episode (I'll be back on the MMC soon too)

Stu’s Views Episode 06: Rob Halford - Confess



Hey all, Stu here, as promised I'm back with a new view, hot on the heels of the previous one (Studio 54).

On this one, I take a different direction and do a book review... well an audiobook review.

I recently read (listened to) Rob Halfords' excellent autobiography CONFESS, and wanted to share my thoughts on it. Even if you are not a Judas Priest or Metal fan, this book is a must read. For more thoughts on it, listen on. 

I'll be back in a another couple of days with another view, on a film that I am yet to see, but am very curious about. Whether I like it or not, you'll hear about it.


Back soon

Stu’s Views Episode 05: Studio 54



Hey all, Stu here, yes I'm still alive, all will be explained in the opening few minutes of this view. This time around, I look at the fabulous documentary STUDIO 54. The glitz, the glamour, the dancing, the drugs, the fall from grace, this doco has it all. A big thanks to the Nes (Anthony Nesbitt) for being so kind to send me this, thanks mate. And to the rest of you, enjoy. New view hot on the heels of this one.
