Hi, and goodbye

He stopped for petrol on the north coast and a guy at the petrol station says to him 'Hey, my brother got your job yesterday'.

That, according to a "source" was how Nathan Foley heard about being axed from kids' group Hi-5. For his part, Foley just says: "Look, I don't really want to talk about it. I've got a contract until Christmas and I intend to honour it." The story goes that the last of the original band members was forced out to complete the transition to younger and cheaper performers. Gosh, he's only 29. Some of the Wiggles are old enough to be his dad, and nobody says they are too old to do what they do. But, of course, they run their own show, and are not just employees like the Hi-5ers. Time for a fan revolt, I say ...
