We’ve been putting off posting our official Beatles collection because – well, it’s not as if they need more publicity, is it?
Our 18 stories about blues songs travel far and wide but it’s no surprise that some are set in the home of the blues.
Given so many Stereo Stories (or stories in general ) are about rites of passage, and formative years, it’s no surprise we have a collection of short music-memoirs about schooldays. Just over 20 stories, including contributions from noted authors Tony Birch and Melanie Cheng, and our RocKwiz colleague Brian Nankervis.
We have a handful of stories inspired by The Rolling Stones. Just the five, which may be a fraction surprising.
The Neil Young collection of Stereo Stories is quite small – just seven pieces so far – but each sings its own tune, so to speak. And two of the contributions are from two of Australia’s finest writers.
Amongst our humble collection about Bob Dylan songs you’ll find stories about high-school days, share-house life, broken relationships, family life, teenage life, unrequited love, and grief.
Our classical music collection is in a small, curious corner of the Stereo Stories library.
The careers of many musicians featured in our OzMusic stories would have been shaped in one way or another by Michael Gudinski.
It is a source of quiet pride – and privilege - that nearly a dozen contributors to Stereo Stories have entrusted their accounts of mental health with us.
Of the 560 stories on this website we've got nearly 30 stories that we've listed under 'Humour', kicking off with this year's jazz poems from Bill Arnott and then delving deep into our back catalogue.
