From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bob Hudson is an Australian singer and radio presenter, best known for the satirical narrative song "The Newcastle Song", which topped the Australian charts for four weeks in 1975, and "Girls in Our Town", a Top 40 hit for Margret RoadKnight. The single version of "The Newcastle Song" was an edit of a much longer live recording that was featured on the Newcastle Song album.

Other album releases by Hudson included After Me Cat Left Home and Party Pieces.

Hudson was a one of the original on-air team at the ABC rock radio station 2JJ (Double Jay, now Triple j) in 1975, and later worked for 2BL, presenting the Music Buffs' Talk Back Show with Glenn A. Baker.

Hudson went on to earn a PhD in archaeology at the University of Sydney and conducts research on ancient Myanmar (Burma).
