    Maynard goes New Romantic on Sunday

    For one brief hour, just this once, I’ll be playing at the Electronique monthly New Wave afternoon this Sunday 3rd September with a New Romantic set sure to impress the shoulder pads off you all.

    Duran Duran, ABC, Spandau Ballet, Lene Lovich and even Blue Rondo a la Turk will be played between 4-5pm after which I will possibly be asked to leave the building by management, leaving Mark Vick & Jade to Grey to continue the regular New Wave sounds of the afternoon through to 10pm.

    That’s at Harpoon Harrys 4-5pm Sunday.

    What did you do in the Cold War Uncle Maynard ?

    1984, a time that thermonuclear war was even more tangible than now. AND we supposedly had adults in charge then.

    Using 2 Nagra reel to reel tape machines, I put this together in my lounge room in Newcastle East one night in 1984.. Wacky and very 1984. It was for broadcast on 2NUR-FM “Radio Stupid”.

    Bunga Bunga 39 – Tim Ferguson & Maynard

    Bunga Bunga 39 has Tim Ferguson with the Doug Anthony All Stars in the UK. He’s working at the Edinburgh Festival followed by a season in London.

    Maynard and Tim tackle politics, sex, the moon landing hoax and rocks in your muesli (muesli-leaks).

    We answer your Crankmail about aeroplanes, autographs and the very meaning of Bunga Bunga itself. We have answers this multiple times, may we recommend having a slow binge listen to Planet Maynard, starting at Bunga Bunga 1

    In Bunga Bunga 39, Tim changes radio history, while Maynard plays with his doll (but it’s a good one).

    As heard in Bunga Bunga 39:
