Sydney Airport, January 5, 2006
I fiddle with my Walkman radio, singularly ravenous for Australian sounds.

'G’day Harry,' I began, 'I’m from Tasmania …'
Kinglake, Winter, 2008
And then we were in Kinglake. It was beautiful. The roads followed the hills, through the trees. It was such an achingly typical Australian bush landscape – eucalypts everywhere, dirt tracks leading up towards houses nestled in the hills.

Our banner photo
The Stereo Stories banner photo was taken in 2011 at Amoeba Music, San Francisco where we bought music by Gram Parsons, J Mascis, Off!, Psychic TV, Josh T Pearson and an A Tribe Called Quest t-shirt.
You can catch Stereo Stories on Facebook and Twitter. You can also drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, we'd love to hear from you. And we're always looking for contributors.
Stereo Stories are stories inspired by songs.
You could say that every song has at least two stories.
There’s the story of the song itself: about love or sex or war, about a broken heart, about growing up …
And there’s the story of hearing and listening to that song, in a particular place, at a particular time.
So, take a song, a time and a place and you may well have a Stereo Story to tell.
