Hooley Dooleys in rancorous split with ABC by Simon Sharwood

It’s not often that you read news about kids entertainers in the newspaper, but The Australian covers The Hooley Dooleys’ rancourous split with the ABC today here: http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,21264720-421,00.html .

Some excerpts …

” … the Hooleys were seen largely as a hokey act compared with the slick Wiggles operation.”

“The ABC committed to another 12 months with the group due to the new management but asked for them to rush a new DVD into production … Then, two days before delivering their master of the DVD, the ABC told [manager] Colebourn they and Roadshow Home Entertainment no longer wanted the DVD.”

It all ends in tears as the Hooleys feel the ABC has betrayed them and defect to Warner Bros, who score them a massive US deal (I’d use more excerpts except the online story mysteriously ends before the juicy bits).

This is much more interesting than whatever Angelina Jolie did last week. The kids couldn’t give a toss, of course. They just thought it was cool that I talked about the Hooley Dooleys.

They were also quite interested in this  which is about a big wave rider in West Australia who happens to be an old mate of my Cousin D.
