Archie C delves into the strange existence of the Roadie.

To be a roadie in the Australian music scene in 1960s, 70's and 80's was to exist on a diet of cheap food, no sleep and bad drugs,
 whilst driving long and dangerous distances between cities through the night. Stuart Coupe talks about his latest book, Roadies: the secret history of Rock “N’ Roll. Then it's off to the Thornbury Theatre where an audience of 300 roadies attended the book launch, which featured a panel of roadies talking about their role in the Australian music.
