  1. “I’d like to acknowledge the sovereignty of all First Nations people.” (Tiga Bayles beginning his Let’s Talk broadcast from radio 98.9 FM in Brisbane.)

    I hope the legacy of Tiga Bales continues to nurture the brightest of futures for all the people influenced by his remarkable contribution to both indigenous and non-indigenous Australia.  

    Sincere condolences to all family and friends of Tiga Bayles
    Yours sincerely, Ray Bergmann
