2:10 Thirty Years Since Poi E - Claire Bowes of BBC Witness
Going back 30 years to recall such a memorable moment in New Zealand's pop history. The first time a te reo Maori song reached number one on the charts. Poi E by The Pātea Māori Club was written by linguist, Ngoi Pewhairangi with music by Dalvanius Prime to rally young Māori - in a music format they could relate to.
Dalvanius setup his own label after rejection from other record companies, called Maui Records. They recorded 'Poi E' in late 1983 with the The Pātea Māori Club providing the vocals above its now legendary funky rhythm that features bass, Linn drums and a synthesiser.
Shortly we'll find out from The Patea Maori Club about their on going work now, but interestingly enough we have an international perspective on Poe E's impact in 1984. Claire Bowes of BBC Witness sent this out globally this morning.
2:20 The Patea Maori Club 30 Years On - Janine Maruera: The Patea Maori Club is still going strong 30-plus years after the success of Poi E - performing regularly around the country and overseas too. The club is an integral part of the community - and while some of the original members who started the group in the 1970s aren't around anymore - there are plenty of young performers keen to keep the traditional songs going. Janine Maruera and her husband Andy are the two tutors.
2:30 Reading: Bruce Phillips reads 'Hospital' - episode thirteen of our fifteen-part adaptation of Archibald Baxter's book 'We Will Not Cease' .
2:45 Feature Album - Astral Weeks - Van Morrison's enduring 1968 classic, just named at Number Two by Rolling Stone magazine on one of its many lists, this time the 20 Best SECOND Albums of All Time.
3:12 Virtual World - Dr Jules Older:
3:30 The Island Child Trust - Lisa Thompson: An emergency housing programme in East Auckland was due to shut its doors this month because of a lack of funding. However the Tamaki community has other ideas.
4:06 On The Panel today are Rosemary McLeod and Lyndsay Freer. The latest and seemingly most plausible theory on the Malaysian plane, but also other questions, about the ways this may change aviation procedure. The confusion now over what Ernst & Young investigators were and weren't allowed to look into in their Kohanga Reo enquiry. How the number of your house can affect its sale price. The serious-sounding flu, and what you should do. The sad sale of the art deco buses in Hawkes Bay, the joys of the South Island and more pay for teachers on school camps.
