Australian singer Olivia Newton-John, who gained worldwide fame as high-school sweetheart Sandy in the hit musical movie "Grease," died Monday, her family said. She was 73.

The entertainer, whose career spanned more than five decades, devoted much of her time and celebrity to charities after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992.

Newton-John "passed away peacefully at her ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends," said a statement from her husband John Easterling posted on her official social media accounts. (AFP)

New UK travel ban to SA scuppers Damon Beard's first trip 'home'. Britain has announced it is banning travel from six southern African countries, including South Africa, after SA detected a new Covid-19 variant with a large number of mutations. It is suspending flights from noon today. Britain will also require anyone arriving from banned countries from 4:00 am on Sunday to quarantine in hotels.
The news means that East Coast Gold's 2pm to 6pm weekday presenter Damon Beard will have to cancel his first holiday 'home', planned for mid-December. He chatted to Gordon Graham about the impact of the news in Gordon's More Music Breakfast Show this morning.

Lions returned to Africa, touch grass for first time

It took 76 hours of travel, but four lions - Luke, Demira, Diya and Frieda - are back where they belong on African soil after living in terrible conditions in the Ukraine. Gordon Graham chats to The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization's Yvette Taylor about this incredible rescue which has taken many months to arrange and which was spearheaded by Lionel De Lange - who runs the NGO's Ukraine chapter.

The lions will now see out their lives at the beautiful Love Lions Alive Project - a sanctuary - near Harrismith.

Gordon chats to Jane about gold music memories

Breakfast host Gordon Graham had fellow East Coast Gold presenter Jane Linley-Thomas on the show to talk about what it's been like to be part of East Coast Radio's new digital radio station. Jane says the music on East Coast Gold evokes such amazing memories of special times. But she's also found that it resonates with her young children. "The whole house was singing," she tells Gordon. Gordon also tests Jane's memory when he puts her on the spot to identify three songs from TV shows from years gone by! Listen to their chat here.
