From The Vault: Interview with Myf Warhurst, Spicks and Specktacular (2011)

features-spicks-and-specks

In eight days’ time (Sunday 30 October 2016), Overheard Productions is closing its doors OR it might be transitioning into something similar only different.

Yeah, I’d put money on the latter!

Hold on. 30/10/2016 = 13 = 4 = death. Strangely appropriate in one way, but a bit final given my plans! Meh, that numbers game is like a horoscope to me. Interesting for shizs and giggles, but not to be taken overly serious.

[Just look over there while I throw some salt over my left shoulder and turn around three times.]

Over the next eight days, I’m going to (as time permits) resurrect some old interviews and sound files. I’m paying these days for unlimited Soundcloud space, so I might as well make use of it.

This is one that I strangely never attached to a WordPress document, which is very weird since it’s one of my favourites with one of my all-time favourite on air/screen people.

When the Spicks and Specks offered me a choice of Alan Brough or Myf to interview, I did think that Alan would be a fascinating man to speak with given his encyclopaedic knowledge of music and his brilliantly dry and funny wit.

But dude. Myf Warhurst. MYF WARHURST!!!

I was like a cat on a hot tin roof, though not as alley cat-like as my daughter figured (as mentioned in the interview).

Enjoy.

Myf is currently presenting the lunch show (11am to 2pm ADST) on Double J radio (digital radio, online and Channel 200 on Free To Air television). Though at the time of writing (Saturday 22 October 2016), I believe she may still be overseas and the chair is being skillfully warmed by the aforementioned Alan Brough.

No, that must have been a pack of lies, as my late mother would say. Looks like she’s back!

[VIDEO] The Great Overheard Productions Train Tomfoolery Continues: Tuesday Updates

Overheard Productions and the Queensland Police Service: trying to get our ducks in a row

This ongoing police procedural drama/situation comedy is sponsored by the makers of the Matt Barker Radio interview on Overheard Productions: 
https://overheardproductions.com/2016/09/12/audio-interview-with-matt-barker-radio-podcasts-and-digital-radio/

I’ve said it before and will keep saying it: you just cannot make this shit up!

Three days after the Friday night police incident where a whole passenger train was detained for ten minutes while members of the QPS swarmed around the Lota station, and after many phone calls, I’m still in the dark.

I’ll give you the Wednesday updates later, but for now, here is where Ankerss Ahrr-Whey tracks down a neighbour of mine to find out what the heck is going on.

Garry briefs us for a short while until his meal starts to go cold and his accent ships off from north England to…. we’re not quite sure where.

And for those of you who saw the teaser, you know want some more of this:

(A little tip for amateur video-ers, Youtubers: if you’re recording a live performance, be sure to include even just a little of the applause at the end. Otherwise, it’s a bit like a door slamming shut in your face when you stop talking with a friend. I was going to go with a butt cheeks analogy; aren’t you glad I didn’t?)

And now that we’ve gone there, let’s go here. Muggins is there, front and centre at about 0:10. A time of my life when song just took me somewhere I’d never been before.

ENDS hopefully this century…

Police Halt Overheard Productions For 48 Hours: Sunday Updates

With less than seven hours before the Matt Barker Radio interview bursts out of the Overheard Productions media megalith offices, we’re getting to the bottom of the police incident on Friday night where Bill Quinn, the CEO, choir-director and head bird fancier (qwoar!) of Overheard Productions was detained and questioned by member of Queensland State Police.

The incident was captured in song and performed the next night in Tokyo where ace reporter Phillip McKawfee-Khupp captured these images:

Somehow, via the magic of radio, during that song, Phil has magically appeared in Lota, Queensland and filed this report.

Phillip McKawfee-Khupp has taken up a strategic position on the lawns between the Redlands Performing Arts Centre and The Bench bar, ready to pounce on the next plod who comes out of the cop shop.

More details as they come to hand. We return you now to regular programming and ‘Policing And The Law Around The World’ focuses tonight on the UK:

The Woodford Files 2014-15: Coming Attractions

Woodford 2014-15: In the rear view mirror, but not out of sight yet
Woodford 2014-15: In the rear view mirror, but not out of sight yet

The curtain has long since fallen on Woodford Folk Festival for 2014-15.

However, I still have a stack of video to share, and a notebook overflowing with observations, gags, anecdotes and stories.

I’ll bring those to you very soon, though right now I’m a little tech-challenged.

I’m writing this in a tent and to get reception, I’m holding one phone balanced on my stomach, pointing towards Maleny while typing on the other.

During the day, I either walk down to the road and lean one phone against a fence post, OR I have now found if I place it in the tree in the forecourt, I get a good data flow (but no good for phone calls).

Tomorrow, the public library beckons.

Apart from the midnight countdown, Fire Event, camp wrap-up, and volly party plus speeches, I do want to tie a bow around the lot separately for Timber and Steel, Galloping Sheep, and Trad and Now.

Coming here and there soon.
