Producer and presenter of Matinee Idle

Presenter of Saturday Night

Phil O’Brien returned to New Zealand radio after a lengthy broadcasting career in Australia and the United States. He’s been a part of Radio New Zealand National since 2002 as an occasional newsreader and a midnight-dawn host. He started Radio New Zealand National’s summer schedule feature music show, Matinee Idle, the following year. Since then, this programme has become a hugely popular summer feature for a lot of listeners at home and abroad.  It now turns up on public holidays as well as the summer schedule and has developed a dedicated (some may say obsessive) fan-base! But wait there's more...Phil also hosts the Saturday evening show from 7pm through to midnight. Tune in to hear your requests and wander through some musical memories and nostalgic moments.
