Three to Seven invited you to send in photos of your RNZ Concert listening posts this week, and we've been delighted with the response.

"Send in a photo with a music request", suggested host Bryan Crump. "And we'll see what we can squeeze in between 3 and 4 on a Friday" 

Before long Crump had messages from as far away as Australia and even California, where Tim Morrison listens online, because while there are some good classical music stations in his home patch (San Francisco's Bay Area) only RNZ Concert offers classical music with a Kiwi accent.

Morrison fell in love with New Zealand when he worked in Wellington for a few months.

Here's some of the other vantage points you shared with us.
