Maynard's Malaise

Australia's Maynard, although not the guy from Tool, he proves he is one. Take a journey through pop culture with no clear purpose or destination. Sometimes a video. Always shameless.

A Xmas show that is not for children, consider yourself warned. Tim Ferguson and Maynard empty their Xmas sack of goodness all over your floor. This year has been a cracker for Tim.

Listen and hear your dreams turn into Bunga Bunga.

Finding Ecstasy with Norman Fox

01 Maynard Norman

Norman Fox (that’s him the young together one on the right) has written a coming-of-age novel (Finding Ecstasy) against the backdrop of the late 80s Hordern Pavillion dance parties. He was there and lived it. We took a walk around the Hordern today while sharing some stories and flat out gossip. Join us in your 501s, Doc Martins and padded bomber jackets….

IMG 1861

Molly Meldrum was a popular boy at The Bookshop, Darlinghurst when he made an appearance to sign his biography “The um Neverending Story”. He also announced plans to produce a musical about Che Guevara & hinted at romantic involvement with Jana Wendt. It’s the iconic and never boring Mr Ian “Molly” Meldrum.

Bunga Bunga 9 Tim Ferguson & Maynard

IMG 1851 med

The power of the Bunga Bunga is strong in this one. Tim Ferguson gives Australian politics a piece of his mind. Maynard can’t spare any of his and asks Tim about Jesus. A Skeptic drops by. Can you pick the accent of our waitress at the Cafe Frou Frou? The show in search of a format marches on…

John Waters interview July 1990

waters

John Waters talks about his likes, dislikes and his deep hatred of sport. The movie Cry Baby had been released and he was as charming and witty as always. His new book Carsick is about him hitchhiking across the USA. You could do worse than getting stuck in a small space with him.

Bunga Bunga 7 Tim Ferguson & Maynard

Tim Ferguson & Maynard Bunga 7

Maynard & Tim Ferguson take a wild sexual ride through the experiences of the listeners. This show features the Doug Anthony All Stars on Maynard's Triple J breakfast show May 1990. This show is not for children, especially that little kid that keeps mouthing off at us. This truly is average entertainment, for no apparent reason.

Maynard Breakfast FREE-FM 2000

FREE FM logo 2000

March 2000 was the last test broadcast of FREE-FM a GTLB station trying to get a broadcast license in Sydney. Here's an hour of the breakfast show. Warning; you may find this very offensive if you are a Sagittarius. Thanks to Ashley Hall, Peter the Newsreader & Don Balfour and all the FREE-FM team. Our motto; Free-FM: We love to pry.

Danny Elfman & Pee Wee Herman interviews 1988

Pee Wee Herman

Interviews from Triple J breakfast show 1988 & 1990. A 1990 Danny Elfman is perplexed that the LA critics actually like Dark At The End Of The Tunnel from Oingo Boingo. Pee Wee Herman is going all Frank Sinatra over his 1989 movie Big Top Pee Wee. 

Bunga Bunga 6 Tim Ferguson & Maynard

Tim Ferguson & Maynard navigate the uncharted waters of a show with no format. We brown nose, we celebrate, but above all, we listen to you and announce the biggest intellectual challenge to our audience ever. Dating, TV and yet another new opening theme.  

Ash Rothschild gets all Caligula & Graveyard Rockstars

Ash medium

Ash Rothschild was the lead singer of Sydney band Caligula from 1990 till 1994. He now sings with The Graveyard Rockstars. In this park bench Surry Hills heartwarming moment, Ash talks about 90s bands like The Cure, Frente & Girlfriend. 90s drugs like MDMA & Passion Pop. Warning: this show contains adult concepts, like becoming a parent and fear of using the phrase “you tell kids that today, and they won’t believe you.”

Bunga Bunga Ep 5 Tim Ferguson & Maynard

Bunga 5 pic

Tim & Maynard search for a format yet again. We ask you about your pet sex names and Tim gets harsh reviews from a young local boy. Maynard eats an odd shaped cookie. Again. The audience is put on notice to lift their game.

Peter Brune on the fall of Malaya & Singapore - Descent Into Hell

Descent Into Hell Peter Brune

The fall of Malaya & Singapore and the experiences of the men in the POW camps is difficult subject matter. Peter Brune has spent 9 years on his 600 page book Descent Into Hell. He has written about the issues of war in a bluntly honest way.

Bunga Bunga Ep 4 Tim Ferguson & Maynard

Maynard Tim Ferguson small

Tim is back from Hobart. Maynard test drives a theme tune. We answer your crankmail. You choose to most erotic word & tell us what modern love about. Could Flying High be made in 2014? Maynard interviews Doug Anthony All Stars from London 1990. Just what is in our “bug out” bag?

Sunday Afternoon Fever - Caligula 21.3.1993

Ash Caligula

A bumper 3 hour show of the Sunday Afternoon Fever show from 21st March 1993. Guests; Caligula, Donna DeLory (Madonna dancer), Elvis (from Newcastle) & Sale Of The Century winner Russell Cheek. Maynard’s Mastermind quiz and other things to puzzle over from the 20th century. We also attempt to solve the burning social issue of 1993; Who was the better band Frente or Haircut 100?

The Lost Legions Of Fromelles

IMG 0054

Peter Barton has produced a reference work for the WW1 battle of Fromelles. The book has taken 10 years for him to produce and tells the story from both sides. Peter Barton has given more perspective to a very brutal battle in Australian military history.

Bunga Bunga Ep 3 Tim Ferguson & Maynard

IMG 5967

The show that shouldn’t have had a 1st episode, has a 3rd. Tim Ferguson & Maynard take your questions and ask a few of their own. Tim Ferguson makes bold statements about politics, burlesque AND Richard Fidler (completely unsupported by facts) Maynard swears twice and admits to reading a book recently. PLUS your regular dose of Lorne Greene. This show is going nowhere even faster than we thought.
