More Balls Than Packer or Gyngell

As Australia reels in the shock revelations that our media and casino industry are run by men whose testosterone is more plentifiul than their brain cells, Balls Radio looks at other great fights in Australian history.

How does Packer and Gyngell stack up against Normie Rowe and Won Casey?
Meanwhile, in the US, Ben Affleck has been banned from playing Blackjack. The casino reckons he was too good at it. Richard Kazimer fills us in with the details on that, a bungled execution in Oklahoma and the disgraced owner of the LA Clipper NBA team.
They’re too busy racing cheeses down the hillside in Britain for any high profile fisty-cuffs. John Dobbie takes us through some of the strange events that sprout around the UK as the weather warms up (a little).
David Campbell flies the flag for New Zealand, raving about the Kiwi actors making it big on US TV this season.
Brian Haverty hears that one TV channel is looking to launch a late night TV chat show. It works in the US why won’t it work here? Listen to the list of names being touting and you’ll understand why the format never seems to take off.
And your Balls host Phil Dobbie rants on about the Commission of Audit – a more obvious attack on the disadvantaged it would be hard to find, although he applauds the one move for which Tony Abbott is being roundly condemned, his great big new debt tax. Why would anyone who claims to lean to the left be against a new tax aimed largely at the rich?

What is Balls Radio?

Balls Radio is like talk radio, but for thinking people. Now a short daily occurrence, Phil Dobbie offers his opinions on what's happening, in the UK and overseas: politics, social policy, economics, science, religion. Yes, it's another, slightly overweight middle-aged white man telling the world how it should be. But there's nothing alt-right about Balls Radio. And we try and have fun along the way.
