I think you will find that it is the lady herself Bill.


search recordings by Dorothea Mackellar and I think you will find it.

Hi Bill. This is great! I couldn't get it to play either....until....I clicked under the play arrow, directly on the 'my country wma.' It then 'saved' & I played it from 'my docs.'
It is very exciting to think it may be Ms Mackellar herself.

You gave the game away Bill, who is the reader would have been more sneaky. ;) Not that I know about sneaky. :roll:
