    DJ Paul Holden – In his own words

    I had the pleasure to interview Mr Paul Holden and have him share some of his life in the DJ box and the dance floor.

    He is no longer out there championing the cause of good grooves and vinyl.

    Enjoy this time Paul Holden and myself spent on his rooftop, chatting about the feeling you get when THAT track is mixed in, among thousands, but you felt that Paul was maybe playing it just for you.

    He is a part of our dance culture that many people who go to bed at 9pm might not understand, but WE were there and so was DJ Paul Holden.

    Thank you for the interview Paul…

    Bunga Bunga 25 Tim Ferguson & Maynard

    It’s Bunga Bunga 25 and Maynard looks kind of appalled as he realises Tim will use his gift of a new megaphone for evil, not decency.

    Bunga Bunga 25 has Tim Ferguson & Maynard battling a new crowd in a new Glebe cafe (Sappho) unused to the ways of Bunga. This show manages to annoy Sherlock, Culture Club & Nirvana fans. We meet Tim’s pharmacist and the two argue about the true identity of Jack The Ripper.

    Plus we answer (again) once and for all the age old Autumn affront: Are Tights Pants?

    Debbie Harry Interview 1990

    Debbie Harry came into the Triple J studios in William St, Kings Cross the night after her Sydney show at Enmore Theatre in March 1990. I was told I only had 5 minutes and I tried to make the most of it with a bemused Ms Harry.

    It was probably the first time I’d had someone as famous as her actually in the studio, usually they had been on the phone. This was pre recorded to good onto my Triple J Breakfast show the following morning. Chris Norris produced the interview up while I tried to get a few hours sleep.

    We covered perhaps the most important question of all that Deborah Harry has ever been asked; What exactly is your favourite disco song?

    Bunga Bunga 24 Tim Ferguson & Maynard

    Bunga Bunga 24 with Tim Ferguson & Maynard proves once again that cats will save democracy and look cute doing it. But what of Tim’s cat Kitler? What exactly is Kitler plotting in Tim’s Fortress of Arrogance? Maynard has been invited to this frosty yet smelly destination to ask Tim’s opinion of comedy critics, Communists and Melissa Tkautz. Bunga Bunga promises you the dear listener, a white knuckle ride to the very end of a show in search of a format.

    This show is for James Travel & Dr Rachie. Our two latest Patreon supporters.

    Frank Bennett Swings

    The legendary Frank Bennett played Lizottes in Newcastle recently and Maynard was there to capture the swinging’ groove & atmosphere. Along with Pete Porker & Mitch Capone a classy evening was almost had by all. Seeing Frank Bennett in his undies only added to the 1960s vibe of the show. Go see him live people.

    Have a look at Frank Bennett’s Facebook page for his next show.
