We don't normally get the chance to see many comedians in this part of the country, which is why hearing Carlo Ritchie is coming to Andamooka was such a surprise.
Carlo Ritchie has been performing comedy for years as part of the improv duo, The Bear Pack, has taken his talents overseas to international comedy festivals like the Edinburgh Fringe, and has even had a recurring spot on the ABC Comedy program, Tonightly with Tom Ballard, discussing issues affecting rural Australia.
Performing a free event in the Andamooka Community Hall, Carlo will be showcasing his comedy chops and improv skills.
Pip Stafford from the Andamooka Yacht Club helped organise the event, and she says she's seen him perform before and is looking forward to seeing what he brings to Andamooka on October 19th.
"He's very dry - he's got a very dry type of humour - and he's very smart. I think it's going to be a great show! He's very sarcastic, and I mean that's up my alley, I love that kind of humour, so it should be a hilarious night!
For those of you who have recently visiting the Roxby Downs Doctors Surgery on Burgoyne Street, you might have seen a new art instalment: Kintay Birrang.
Designed by local Aboriginal artists, Jody Fereti and Sandy Gibb, the mural was painted as a part of NAIDOC Week.
"We incorporated the NADOC theme in it which was "Because of her, we can," and that hospital theme with the women going off to another hospital to give birth," Sandy explained.
The latest exhibition to grace the walls of the Roxbylink Gallery is While We Are Sleeping from local photographer and filmmaker, Travis Hague.
Having arrived in Roxby Downs in 2010, Travis decided to take advantage of the natural surroundings of the area and develop his night-time photography skills - skills which have only grown since then.
Now his photography is on display for the town to see in his exhibit "While We Are Sleeping"; a series of photographs, and a projection of time-lapses, displaying a view of the sky above Roxby Downs that the people in town may not have noticed before.
We're halfway through the opening rounds of the season, which means it's time to meet the Brains Behind The Chamber! This week, host Adrian is joined by Brain Chamber producer Sarah and season one Brain Chamber Champion Cyrus to take turns quizzing each other!
South Australian Treasurer Rob Lucas yesterday announced the 2018 State Budget, which included one surprising savings measure; the closure of seven different TAFE campuses around SA, including the campus in Roxby Downs.
The measure included in this year's budget will see the closure of both the Roxby Downs and Coober Pedy TAFE campuses, meaning there will no longer be a TAFE campus north of Port Augusta in South Australia.
Chair of The Roxby Downs Community Board, Sandy Sumsion, said she was shocked to hear of the decision in yesterday's announcement.
After finishing the season on top of the ladder, and a shaky start to the finals series, Hornridge Sporting Club have ended Roxby Districts 5 year premiership streak with a 41 point win over The Miners.
Hornridge hit the ground running, bagging 5 goals in the first quarter which quickly set the tone for the rest of the game.
Unfortunately for The Miners, they were 't able to catch up on the scoreboard, with the final quarter closing at Hornridge 12 goals, 9 behinds (81) to Roxby Districts 6 goals, 4 behinds (40).
This week on Brain Chamber we outsourced for contestants and dragged Pip and Charlie in all the way from the Andamooka Yacht Club!

To help raise awareness for threatened Australian species, The Department of the Environment are inviting all Australians to create baked goods shaped like endangered critters or plants.
This is only the second time the competition has been run, but that hasn't stopped Arid Recovery from putting their kitchen skills to the test once again!
Field Ecologist & Community Co-ordinator at Arid Recovery, Nathan Beerkens, last year earned himself the "Commissioner's Choice Award" for his cake shaped like a Sawfish - all four species of which are endangered in Australia.
We're halfway through the first round of our second season (time just flies in the Brain Chamber!), but we've still got a way to go until we hit the quarter finals!
