    Maynard’s Loveshack (Baby!)

    People all over Sydney are rushing, hushing and flushing to The Red Bar (upstairs) in Glebe for the underrated date of Saturday March 16th 8pm til midnight for Maynard’s Loveshack.

    $10 on the door.

    Join Maynard in his LOVESHACK. But what will it sound like? If you like your retro sounds eclectic, it might sound something like this or not.

    Maynard the retro DJ behind the Madd Club and many other happenings over the decades, presents a night of shameless sounds that celebrate the pop and pretentiousness of the late 20th century.

    The legendary Lance Leopard will be choosing the music for the first hour or so and will keep making entrances till he is noticed. Upon which he will immediately hold court.

    It’s a rare chance to have a meet up with Lance and Maynard. So have your questions ready.

    Video will be screened from the Maynard International Studios library to inspire your dance moves.

    William Shatner charms Sydney

    William Shatner charmed the frankly overexcited crowd that came from far and very wide to see his live solo show at The State Theatre in Sydney in October 2018.

    I grabbed my best Shatner tie and my 1969 BBC Star Trek puzzle book and knew I was going to be among my kind of people.

    If I can’t wear this tie tonight. Then when?

    The resulting Planet Maynard podcast is from the dozen people I spoke with at The State Theatre that night.

    The many shades of Shatner mentioned included:

    The Outer Limits, TJ Hooker, Miss Congeniality, The Twilight Zone, Shit My Dad Says, Tribbles, Gorn, Kingdom of the Spiders, Canada, Red Shirts,Flying High 2, Star Trek 2 (but not Star Trek 5). Yet not one person could even hum the theme to one of my favourite works of The Shatman, Barbary Coast.

    Here’s Bill in a mauve smoking jacket as he turns out to be a man of many disguises in the opening credits.

    That theme tune!

    Thanks to the Red Shirts, Belinda and her mum Robyn from the southern tablelands, Kevin Williams and the disgruntled Canadian.
