Here's the 19/12/92 Juke magazine with a D-Gen cover and full page article about the first series of the Late Show. (See my avatar)

I've had to scan them in two halfs and stick them back together as the issue was to big to get scanned in one go. Hopefully it will be big enough to read.

Hope this helps,

Brilliant! Brilliant! Thanks heaps for that. Surely, that would be the only D-Gen interview in exsistence where Rob Sitch doing a wee is documented? But it was a great read, the comic-tragedy of the Richie Richardson Hats! Poor Rob and Santo, at least they made up for it with the Bill Laurie nose and bunting-tie reel, some of my own personal favourites.

And who is Santa in that photo? Michael Hirsch?

See that 'alluring' display of chest hair on Tommy was sooo why we used to bag him. He gets an A with honours for physical improvement.
Are you castin' aspersions on the habeebee?

I must have been the only one who appreciated the Richie Richardson hat gag.

:D

Haha! You know when a gag is done too well? The craftsmanship of those hats was so amazing it was like "My God! Look at those big hats! Who the hell had to make those? The poor thing is she alright? Did Rob and Santo stand over her cracking a whip? etc. etc.", and hence no laugh.

Sorry the text is a bit small. I would have posted it as two scans but the article runs down the page so wouldn't have been easy to read. If anyone wants lager files I can email them to you.

I'm not sure who the Santa is, everyone looks a bit off as the picture has been squished up to fit on the cover of the magazine. When you look at Rob and Mick on the side looking a bit 'warped' thats the actual cover, not my scanner.

I loved the big hats as well. I actually loved how a lot of Graham and the Colonal fell flat, their ad lib reactions to dud jokes were often funnier that the scripted stuff. It also added charm to the characters.

Most of the re-hersal stuff i got to see was better than the aired product.......thats not to say i don't love the product that went to air.......it's just with the guys not having the audience they were naturally more relaxed and the flow of things was smoother etc etc

Okay, I've dug out a couple more major articles that don't seem to be represented here, all from Australian 'Rolling Stone'

Apologies in advance that they are a bit hard to read. Rolling Stone is another oversize mag that is hard to get in the scanner. I've done the best I can without wrecking the magazines.

Again to get the full page a couple of times I've had to stitch two scans together. The articles are long, the text may be a bit small, but I'm sure you'll manage! I've basically scanned articles in order, and at the end put the cover of the issue. This way if you are looking for a copy yourselves you know what issue to look for rather than trying to find it by number. (You would never know the first article was in there from the cover though!)

I'm sure there were Martin/Malloy issues later on, but I can't find them at the moment. I should at least have the issues that review the 3 CD's they brought out.

The first is a very early one from the D-Gen goes commercial days. Love the picture of 'Rob Switch' and do you think they ever got as big as 'BJ & the Bear'?
