    A Very Maynard Xmas 2000 Channel V

    It’s a selection of music and Xmas musings in A Very Maynard Xmas 2000 from Channel V on Foxtel from 2000.

    Keep an eye out for Jabba, Yumi, Kyla, Mary, Mike, Andrew G, James Matheson and Andrew Mercardo, as we enjoy a getaway near an open fireplace with some moments from Channel V in 2000.

    If you liked the earlier Maynard Channel V Xmas show, this will give you that same funny feeling in your water.

    Uncool Yule 2 – More Dud Xmas Discs

    Dave Mulligan brings you an uncool yule when he returns with 3 great songs for the holiday season, or so he thinks.

    Dave Mulligan is a 50s and 60s record collector, mainly 45s, and every year Maynard asks him to share a few that you don’t normally hear at this time of year. Or ever really.

    Maynard and Dave Mulligan apologise and wish you a very Uncool Yule.

    A Very Very Bunga Bunga Xmas Xmas 2018

    Maynard and his fellow travellers present the most confusing fun you will have this festive season in A Very Very Bunga Bunga Xmas Xmas.

    In 2018 Planet Maynard went from being roasted by Who Are These Podcasts? (they have over 12 million listeners) to celebrating 50 episodes of Bunga Bunga with Tim Ferguson AND rediscovering Sydney 1990s gossip legend Lance Leopard (who was signing and selling indulgences on the traffic island at Taylor Square).

    Lance Leopard is very excited this Xmas about his new velour Playboy smoking jacket with matching pillow and credenza. Because if there’s one thing we know about Lance, he’s out to impress the ladies.

    Great review of the movie that inspired Lance’s best Xmas present ever Airport 79.

    Tim Ferguson took time out from whizzing round Australia teaching comedy to give us a wrap of the year and tell about his new solo comedy show. It will be touring Australia starting in January 2019 in Perth and going most places in Australia throughout 2019. It’s called My Fast Life On Wheels.

    Tim’s website can tell you where and when you can see it.

    A Very Maynard Xmas 2010

    Put the ass back in Xmass with this non child friendly Maynard traditional holiday favourite from 2010. Two guys, a bus stop and a microphone makes it the suckiest kingdom of them all!

    Maynard Staff Xmas Party & Easter Bonnet Parade

    The annual Planet Maynard combined staff Xmas Party & Easter Bonnet Parade was just as wild as every other year.

    I may have to get a permit for the parade next year. Which is a little regulatory overreach I think.

    This is a behind-the-scenes look that non-industry types don’t usually see.

    You can still enjoy the excitement and pageantry of a high class office social event, without anyone getting in trouble. 

    A Very Maynard Xmas 2011

    Maynard & Tony Push bring you Xmas greetings from their favourite bus stop recording studio. Also exciting music reveals The Dirty Disbelievers, a new show in 2012. The second half of the show may have too much poultry in it, but that’s for you to decide.

    A Very Maynard Xmas 2012

    Maynard and Tony Push wander aimlessly around local bustops at Xmas trying to remember what was good about 2012 and wonder what else will go wrong in 2013. Random. With lots of Maynard’s favourite sounds.

    Not everyone has a Planet Maynard calendar, it’s average entertainment, for no apparent reason.

    Uncool Yule – Dave’s Dud Xmas Discs

    Prepare ye for an Uncool Yule with Dave’s Dud Xmas Discs, Dave Mulligan brings you a poorly thought out selection of Xmas goose that made the 50s, 60s & 70s what they are today.

    These tracks will have you singing, dancing & maybe prancing. But you will feel the secret shame of Santa and wonder about the power of Xmas to compel this kind of music creation.

    100% Xmas and 100% shameless, we love it.
