    Sunday Afternoon Fever – Brady Bunch Special

    From September 1992 it’s Sunday Afternoon Fever celebrating all things Brady in a bumper 3 hour episode with music, interviews and a special Brady Maynard’s Mastermind. We also let the people of Australia decide, by voting for their favourite Brady member.

    Mrs Fred Sinatra of Las Vegas is along to give advice on love, Lance of The Hollywood Kids has gossip about the opening night of Fire Walk With Me, as well a the exciting new Drew Barrymore TV project with Aaron Spelling 2000 Malibu Road.

    We speak with Christopher Knight, Peter Brady himself about being the fictional middle child and how he feels about the opening night of The Real Live Brady Bunch.

    The Soloway sisters join us with Warren Coleman to talk about the afternoon they came up with the idea for The real Live Brady Bunch show in their lounge room (their mum thought it would get them in trouble). Jill Soloway has since gone on to write Six Feet Under among many other projects and Warren has won an Oscar.

    Andrew G takes questions from the listeners on all things Brady while in between we hear some music from Caligula, Screamin” Jay Hawkins, Def Fx, The Shamen, Utah Saints, Cracker, Stray Cats and more. Quite the afternoon of listening ahead of you.

    We miss you Florence Henderson.

    Totally 80s Tour, Part 2 – Stacey Q

    Second in the series recorded as I hosted the Totally 80s tour across Australia in July, this show takes you from Perth via Adelaide to Hobart.We hear from excited fans as well as Terri Nunn (talking Giorgio Moroder), Paul Lekakis (giving lifestyle tips), Robyn Loau (taking you on a journey to the darker side of Adelaide) & Stacey Q.

    Stacey Q had two huge worldwide hits in 1986 with Two of Hearts & We Connect. She was under an illness cloud for some of the tour and I managed to interview her in-between bouts of flu.

    Does it sound like we are having fun?

    We are.

    The tour continues…

    Joanne Accom & Jack, Jack, Jackie

    Joanne had the biggest selling Australian single of 1999 with Jackie. A song that Blue Zone, Lisa Stansfield’s band had covered. Joanne’s version sold over 70,000 copies worldwide.

    Joanne Accom had belted out the vocal as a know-it-all 18 year old and now finds herself touring in 2016 with The Vengaboys, Tina Cousins, Whigfield, Sonique & Crystal Waters.

    How did that happen?

    But more importantly, why does she had a bag of Sonique’s shoes at her house?

    Video – Maynard Avengers 60s Special

    The Avengers was one of the greatest UK crime fighting shows ever. Emma Peel and John Stead took on cold war camp enemies every week with style.

    Maynard presents some great 1960s music clips with the help of Tabitha on Channel V from 2000.

    Beatles, Stones, Lulu and some great action packed scenes from The Avengers themselves, you’ll be amazed at what Maynard can do with an umbrella.
