Oz Music Month

Where You Need To Be

As part of Oz Music Month, Ferg’s song ‘Where You Need To Be’ got a spin on ABC Adelaide on Friday in the lead up to Remembrance Day on Sunday, 11 November which marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1. The song is his tribute to the ANZACs. To those who didn’t make it home and to those who did but were never really the same.

If you missed it, you can catch it on the podcast (it’s around the 1:29:45 mark)
