All New Zealand musicians found it hard to get heard with original material in the late 1970s. It was especially tough for female musicians outside the mainstream. Chris Bourke looks back at the influential 1982 compilation by Auckland women, Out Of the Corners.

This audio is not downloadable due to copyright restrictions.

Written, presented, and produced by Chris Bourke; engineered by Phil Benge and Alex Harmer.
