1/2/3/4 — #261 — The Charming Mr Poltz

Steve Poltz is back in Australia after a four year absence, bringing with him great new songs from his Stardust and Satellites release and his truty guitar, Smokey Joe. Steve is more than just a singer/songwriter – he’s a brilliant storyteller, comedian, entertainer and lover of the Hook Turn.
