Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Thursday 28 March 2013

2:10 Victor Company Reunion - Bruce Liddall
They were a combat ready unit of soldiers from the 1st Battalion Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment serving in Vietnam in 1968. Victor Company, were deployed in South Vietnam, and have the distinction of surviving more than 100 days in the jungle, without a break, while deployed with ANZAC forces. This weekend, more than 50 veterans from VIctor Company will be gathering for a reunion in Hawke's Bay.
2:20 The Maori Volcanics - Mahora Peters
They came from New Zealand but sounded like Motown. The Maori Volcanics formed in 1964 and launched the musical careers of some of New Zealand's most loved performers like Billy T Williams and Prince Tui Teka.
But what is less well known, is that they may have helped the four young aboriginal women from the Australian group, The Sapphires find their sound too.

4:06 On The Panel are Andrew Clay in Auckland and Dunedin's Lisa Scott. 110 ks an hour on certain roads - are you in favour? Easter - today, probably - is the day you're most likely to get your car dinged; and is the law fair to the dinged? Is the new speaker of the house doing as good a job as the previous incumbent? Will off peak traffic in Auckland really be worse than peak hour traffic soon? How could that happen? The remunerations considerations afforded to Doug and Don - Don Elder and Doug Heffernan.
