Weird Al Yankovic toured Australia for the first time in 2003. Maynard first met Al on a promotional tour to Australia in 1989, for his movie UHF. Maynard caught up with Al again backstage at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney. Polka time people!
Weird Al Yankovic is touring Australia again in January, see you there.I’ll be recording interviews with fans and perhaps Al himself at the Sydney show. So if you see me, come say “polka” and get on Planet Maynard.

John Blaxland has an extensive background in Joint Intelligence Operations for Australia and has authored volume two of The Official History of Australian Security Intelligence Organisation. John Blaxland covers the protest years of 1963-1975. Maynard is paranoid, has he got anything to worry about? What can we learn from the way ASIO has behaved in the past that may point to the way they will behave in the future? What of their comrades in ASIS and the Signals Intelligence Unit?
Adam Ant answered questions in this Maynard interview from 1990 about manners, fashion, his dating status, but most importantly, undies. He knows why women love 1940s boxer shorts on men.
