Comedians Tony Martin and Mick Molloy interview Kylie Minogue in an excerpt from their Martin/Molloy radio program from 1997.

This clip is notable for its irreverent Australian humour and Kylie is in on the joke, coming across as very self-aware and down to earth.

The Poetry Olympics at the Royal Albert Hall they refer to was called A Hip Mass: The Superjam – First International Poetry Day and it was held on 7 July 1996.

Following the release of her dark duet with Nick Cave, ‘Where the Wild Roses Grow’, just nine months earlier, Kylie achieved a new level of cool cred when she performed a tongue-in-cheek spoken word version of Stock Aitken Waterman's upbeat pop song ‘I Should Be So Lucky’.
