On the ABC Radio National program AWAYE!, Archie Roach talks to host Daniel Browning about his partner in life and music, Ruby Hunter. 

The authenticity of Archie shines through in this interview. Browning gives Archie space and is right not to interrupt. The warmth of Archie's voice draws you into his story. It's a delightful short segment.

Their mutual love and respect is evident in a beautiful, candid interview from 2000 where Ruby describes Archie as her silent hero and herself as his 'rowdy troublemaker'.

They were partners in life and music for more than 35 years before Ruby's death in 2010.
