In his fourth programme for New Zealand Music Month, in reaction the sometimes depressing seriousness of the world around us, William Dart takes a trip around some joyous music from our land – tracks by Phil Dadson, Billy Farnell, the G&T Trio, Linn Lorkin, Chris Knox, Greg Malcolm and Jenny Ward, Nola McCrorie, and that marvellous Maori show band, The Quin Tikis.
