'These things happen to Molly: magic coincidences, fateful happenings' - Daryl Somers
There was once a boy from Quambatook called Ian Meldrum, who moved to the big city, got a job in a bank, and then became Molly, a music legend, writing for Go-Set, producing 'The Real Thing' and providing the soundtrack to our lives on Countdown and Hey Hey It's Saturday.
It's a life where not everything has gone to plan, but Ah Well, Nobody's Perfect.
