Slim and I


Joy McKean (b. 1930) is recognised as one Australia's leading songwriters, and she wrote most of her husband's - the iconic Slim Dusty - most popular songs.

Her story is told in the 2020 documentary, Slim and I, in which she talks of the impact of being separated from her family for 3 years from the age of 4 when she was hospitalised with polio.

"It made me very different" she says.
