David Gray2:10 David Gray

The British singer songwriter, David Gray, has sold millions of records, and he continues to write and perform. He's just about to tour in New Zealand with his tenth album, called Mutineers. It's an album which has received strong reviews and it's also an album which, he has said, marks a new approach to his craft. Who better to ask about this than the man himself

Prince.  Purple Rain.

3:10 Tech News with Paul Brislen

The Internet of things. TVs, cars and air conditioners already plug into the Internet but what happens when they're joined by toasters, fridges, microwaves and, eventually, milk, toilet paper and rice crispie crackers? And TVs have evolved to understand when you say "mute" and "change channels" but to do this they need to capture every word that's said in the room. Does this bother you?

3:30 New Zealand Society
