2015 is the centenary of that iconic Aussie character The Sentimental Bloke, created in 1915 by Clarence Michael James Stanislaus Dennis, who was born in Auburn, South Australia in 1876. C J Dennis was the truly the ‘poet of the people’.

Apart from the Sentimental Bloke, C J Dennis also wrote hilarious social commentary and much-loved verse for kids, like The Ant Explorer and Triantiwontigongolope. As the resident poet for the Melbourne Herald Sun for 16 years from, 1922 till his death in 1938, Dennis wrote some 3000 verses. He wrote a poem EVERY day from 1925 to 1938 for the Melbourne Herald and celebrated EVERY major event in our history in that time – in a poem.

Jim has recorded 34 of his favourite CJ Dennis poems and even put a couple to music. This CD is great value at just $20, which includes postage.
