In 1942 the Japanese invasion of Australia seemed imminent and inevitable. Scorched Earth plans to deny the Japanese invaders were drawn up across Australia and Sue Rosen uncovered the very detailed New South Wales Scorched Earth plans that had been forgotten and misfiled at the end of the Second World War.
The plans drawn up included everything from starting aggressive bush fires to hinder the Japanese and using sharpened Ironbark as improvised bayonets to making sure no soldier of Japan captures your tennis shoes.
The pantomime horse of Australian podcasting Bunga Bunga 36 is back in your ears with a burst of wisdom, advice and poor life choices that you can take to the bunk. That isn’t a typo.
Tim Ferguson is earning dancer dollars with a butter dish while Maynard is earning a high distinction in misdirection by declaring Jedward the winner of this year’s Eurovision.
The Doug Anthony All Stars had to cancel their Perth show, but Tim is adamant it’s not his fault, but a nationwide appeal and witch hunt has begun none the less.
Bunga Bunga 36 investigates Bros, Star Wars and Tchaikovsky and finds them all guilty. Yet Tim Ferguson is a free man after telling a 1600 year old joke, there truely is no justice in this world.
The Dynamic Hepnotics cut a rug across Australia & New Zealand in the 7 years they played across your wide brown land. And they are returning for 3 shows only. 1 in Sydney, 2 in Melbourne.
These days they are busy people with busy music careers, so I put my foot in the door of the lead singer and all round playboy, Continental Robert Susz, at his swanky Kings Cross apartment. An apartment that Adam West himself would be jealous of.
Join Continental Robert and myself in the Suszland music room for wine, music, gossip and Undercover Elephant.
If you don’t go to their upcoming shows you truely are a burden to society.
Get up offa that thing!

It’s always a fun day when Bunga Bunga comes to play.
We had a small audience gather at the Madame Frou Frou Cafe for this recording of Bunga Bunga. Tim Ferguson was his usual showboating self, and he wasted no time taking names and assigning blame to those who richly deserve it.
Tim thinks the Australian desert would look better without that big red rock blocking the view and contemplates destroying Uluru to improve tourism, he picks a fight with the Indian from Village People and he’s overly confident about a song he’s written about whistling.
Maynard is just looking forward to hanging out with a large group of nostalgic lesbians, singing torch songs.
