Description

Taking the mystery out of history where we answer the age-old question: YTH? (Why the heck...?) We'll look at lots of stuff... military, pop culture, governments, sports, the arts... whatever. Drop me a line if you think there's a subject we should cover! Cheers, Conway

It has been called Australia's unofficial national anthem, but it's a song about a Vietnam War veteran with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, addicted to drugs, infidelity, prostitutes and is factually inaccurate and was banned from airplay. So how did a song that was named after an American battle in Vietnam at which no Australians fought become such an icon of Australian culture? Listen to this podcast to find out.
The song 'Convoy' is a great snapshot into American culture in general and the trucking sub-culture in particular. But what do all the terms mean and why was the song so popular? In this fascinating insight into the world of the 1970s, we look at what the song's lyrics mean and how they came about to create a world-wide hit that reached No 1 in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and No 2 in the UK.
