Word of mouth ran rampant.  Musical Director Alteouise DeVaughn, who has some 40 years’ experience in theatre, has her theories on why Priscilla hit the mark. She sat down to chat with FAB FM's Paul Makin (who played Bob the mechanic in the show) to give her thoughts. Plus she talks about her own choirs recent success and the brand new show she's involved in that's coming to the Clink in May.

After More Than 20 Years Off The Grid Singer Songwriter Mike Kuster Is Leading A Charge For Traditional Country Music With An Album Called ’Better Late Than Never’ - He Chats With FAB FM’S Paul Makin

March 11, 2022

Thank the good Lord Mike Kuster has finally started to do what he should have done more than twenty years ago. Make great country music. He'll tell you of course that it was all worth it because he married a real 'darlin' and raised three fine kids in that time BUT us country fans were robbed of his presence in the genre. This man has a real contribution to make in good 'traditional' country music, which in some circles is a dirty word these days but Mike doesn't care and neither do we. Keep penning great tunes and recording songs Mike, we'll take all you've got. FAB FM's Paul Makin spoke to Mike all the way from Maryland in the United States to find out about his latest album aptly called 'Better Late Than Never' and see if he had a good excuse for being M.I.A for so long https://mikekuster.net/

Do you think the Universe was trying to tell them something? Well the stars did align and now they are a couple making beautiful music together and we are the beneficiaries of that pairing. FAB FM's Paul Makin spoke to Alice and Cameron to find out the latest on their amazing journey in country music.  https://thewinnieblues.com/

PAUL MAKIN EDITORIAL - RV NO Vote By 3 Douglas Councillors Will Hurt Mossman And It Was The Wrong Decision Says Paul - It’s Time For This Shire To Move Forward

January 31, 2022

FAB FM's Paul Makin says 3 Councillors, including the Deputy Mayor got it wrong by voting against an RV Park in Mossman. Paul's 'Editorial' brings together the man who brought it to Council to be considered Cr Peter McKeown, CMCA CEO, Richard Barwick, Cr Lisa Scomazzon (Deputy Mayor) Mayor Michael Kerr and a mystery guest who popped up at the last minute supporting the 'No RV Park' Councillors.

Fantastic RV Park Idea For The Shire Defeated 3 To 2 At The Monthly Council Meeting Today - We Chat To Two Of The Major Players Who Wanted It To Succeed PLUS Other Agenda Items

January 25, 2022

Todays meeting of Council saw a disappointing result for Cr Peter McKeown who put forward a motion to get an RV Park established in the Shire. He was supported by the Mayor but torpedoed by the other three councillors including the Deputy Mayor Cr Lisa Scomazzon. Despite no cost to Ratepayers and an income for Council it was defeated. It's obvious that Recreational Vehicles are simply not welcome here in the Douglas Shire and Peter McKeown was trying to address that and the massive dollars it would bring in IF it became a reality. But NO, once again the Shire remains closed to progressive ideas. FAB FM's Paul Makin chats to Peter and to Mayor Michael Kerr about this and other matters on the agenda at todays meeting.  https://douglas.qld.gov.au/

December 14, 2021

A change of mind by Mayor Michael Kerr about a Mayoral Minute aimed at repealing a previous decision by Councillors regarding the controversial 'Splash Park' concept. He chats to FAB FM's Paul Makin about his reasons not to proceed over the matter. Biosecurity front and centre today. A road without a name in Mossman finally gets one. A car park change given the green light in Port. New Port Estate in Craiglee, while providing much needed housing has some major traffic concerns. Carnivale expanded next year AND the Australia Day Awards in the Douglas Shire tipped to be the best ever in 2022. https://douglas.qld.gov.au/
