    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”….

    Oh my, it’s George Takei in Australia

    Having only met George Takei the once, last time he was in Sydney, I found him to be a total charmer and exactly the kind of guy you’d love to meet at a cocktail party. No matter what planet it was held on. These clips should give you something to talk about with him on…
