To celebrate the return of iconic Aussie soap Neighbours next month, Alan Fletcher, who has played Dr. Karl Kennedy on the show for 28 years, has released a fan tribute to one of Ramsay Street’s most beloved characters: Susan Kennedy.
A highlight of his album The Lighter Side Of Alan Fletcher, (I’ve Got A) Crush On Susie K is a tender, catchy and humorous expression of adoration for the undisputed Queen of Ramsay Street. “I sang the song every night on the Neighbours Celebration tour and fans loved it!” says Alan. “I was overwhelmed with the number of requests to record and release the song.”
Millions of Neighbours fans were devastated when the show was axed from world-wide television screens in 2022. The adventures of Ramsay Street’s legendary citizens had held audiences enthralled for 37 years. To the delight of the viewers, Amazon and Channel TEN Australia have rescued the programme and Neighbours returns to television screens all over the world on Sept. 18. There seems little doubt that Neighbours fans’ affection for Susan Kennedy will lead them to embrace Alan’s tribute as they celebrate the return of the Aussie drama.
