The ABC radio held its Exhumed Competition in 2014. Aimed at the never-has-been performers, this national competition was held within the Great Southern with Gertrude and the Dead Aunts reaching the finals.
As a comedic performance, Gertrude played original songs and ended with a crowd winning improvised tune dedicated to the Great Southern ABC team.
