The Hobart Hyphens would be a hit, butthey’d be a commentator’s nightmare.

Rock On John Morris at Lizotte’s, his favourite music venue in Newcastle.

Soon-to-be-appointed Hobart Hyphens coach John Morris has featured before in Topics.

In January, we wrote that hehadthe best New Year’s resolution we’dever heard.

He wasaiming toattend 50 gigs this year.

We’re pleased to report that John isalready halfway there and it’s only April.

“I think this will be one resolution I’ll actually keep,” John said.

“For my 60th birthday, my good mate Tim Lockwoodis taking me to the Cambridge Hotel to see the one and only Rose Tattoo. Rock on, Newcastle!”

There’s been a bit of chatter in recent months about the need for Newcastle’s live music scene to be renewed.

We reckon John should be the face of this campaign.

Hip Hop BingoSnoop Dogg would love it. Possibly.

This Tuesday, a thing called Hip Hop Bingo will be held at theNewcastle Hotel inIslington.

It’s basically bingo but with music.

Players will receivebingo cards with hip hop songs listed. If they hear a song on their sheet, they mark it off. Once they get a line, they’ve gotbingo.

All profits from ticket sales will bedonated to Lifeline Hunter.

No Need for Goji BerriesThis from Newcastle nutritionist Clare Collins in an HMRI tweet:“There’s no need to buy goji berries picked by nymphs at dawn. That kind of super-food talk is misleading and dishonest. The real super foods are hiding in plain sight – they’re in the fruit and veggies section”.
