    Tim Ferguson, the eternal conundrum; Prince v Morrissey

    With the very untimely passing of Prince, we revisit Bunga Bunga 23 in which Tim Ferguson settles once and for all the philosphical challenge through the ages.

    Prince or Morrissey? And can you even have both?

    Over to you Ferguson….

    Jo Grant- Look out Doctor! Here comes a big one.

    The charming and diminutive Katy Manning played Whovian companion Jo Grant 1971-1973 with Jon Pertwee as the third Doctor Who. Together they battled Daleks, Autons and giant evil green maggots from Wales. This interview is from Maynard breakfast show 1991. Katy’s favourite line of dialogue was:”look out Doctor! Here comes a big one.” A line that occurred in more than one episode. Katy Manning has promised a rematch interview on her next visit to Australia.

    Look out indeed. Here comes a live one.

    Warning: Katy Manning is a screamer.

    Chris Dunn was one of the people behind Waterfront Records in Sydney, a legendary record shop and a record label that put out more than 170 releases between 1982 – 1997. The Hard Ons, Tumbleweed & Ratcat were the kind of sound that was favoured by Chris Dunn & Steven Stravakis . Chris has just opened a vinyl record bar, The Edwards Shop in Newcastle West so he can hang out with his Mum more.

    Enjoy this primer on Waterfront Records as Chris schools Maynard on running an indie record label in the 1980s and you can give Chris a visit to see what’s new on his shelves this week.

    Hordern Pavilion Dance Party Special

     Hordern Dance Party Special with Maynard from Hordern Pavilion Dance Party Special. Maynard

    With the recent passing of DJ Paul Holden I was inspired to post the entire hour of a Special I did on Rewind on Channel V in 2001. Using footage originally shot at many dance parties by Charles Amsden in 1988 – 1990. I put some memorabilia and the clips of all the original house tracks. (although I know the Rozalla track is a remix, but we couldn’t find a broadcast version of the original Everybody’s Free at that time.)

    Enjoy, the show is dedicated to DJ Paul Holden and everyone else who was there.
