Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan for Friday 4 September 2015
1:10 First song
'Blue Lady' by Hello Sailor. RIP Graham Brazier.
1.15 Fifth Anniversary Of Sept 2010 Quake
Two events to mark and move on from that day five years ago. The St John Ambulance in Darfield - the epicentre of that 7.1 quake - is finally getting its new station, after their lovely old brick one was destroyed. And nearby Greendale school is singing songs, smashing crockery and even a few (we hope old) pianos as part of a reenactment of the earthquake.
1.20 Irish-French Chanteuse Camille O'Sullivan
The hugely talented performer is coming in to our Auckland studio ahead of her caberet style show in Auckland this weekend. She interprets songs by Bob Dylan, Nick Cave and Tom Waits - often sounding completely different from one track to the next. She's also recently toured with The Pogues and worked with Yoko Ono.
1.34 History of Emotions - Professor Joanna Bourke
A two-day conference at Victoria University of Wellington will trace emotions in history and how they are represented. Keynote speaker is Professor Joanna Bourke, a historian who will deliver a keynote speech exploring the history of the emotions of men physically disabled during World War One.
1:40 Favourite album
Bob Marley's 'Uprising' has been chosen by Ria Hall.
2:10 New Zealand Society - Homeless Radio - David Steemson
It was designed to give Auckland's homeless people a slighter bigger voice … their own radio station. But its future's now looking a bit uncertain. "Radio NFA", short for "No Fixed Abode" live-streams from the inner city.
2:20 NZ Live - Rackets
Auckland pop-punk trio Rackets are tipped for great things. They're in the Auckland studio to play songs from their latest album 'Walking the Skeleton'.
3:10 Food, Wine, Movies And Music
Simon Gault has a recipe for clam chowder.
Belinda Jackson provides a wine match for that recipe as well as her wine recommendations for the weekend:
Te Pa Sauvignon Blanc $19.99
Grapefruit, passionfruit and a hint of elderflower. Crisp and fresh, lovely citrusy acidity, brilliant example of classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and one that has a tremendous tie to the land, which has been in the family for many generations.
Jim Barry The Cover Drive Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
From the Coonawarra and Clare Valley in South Australia, this wine in deeply concentrated with aromas and flavours of ripe, dark-skinned fruits and a touch of menthol as well as some chewy tannins. It was named after a cricket ground situated in the Coonawarra, which now grows this Cabernet, although I gather the original pavilion and pitch have been preserved!
Neudorf 25 Rows Chardonnay 2014 $33 (about to be released – very small quantities)
25 rows of Mendoza clone, low cropped, whole-bunch-pressed, wild ferment in tank, 50% malolactic. Elegant, pure, lemony, weighy yet wrapped in silk and has great cellaring potential (unusual for many NZ Chardonnays).
Alexander Bisley reviews People Places Things and A Walk In The Woods.
Zac Arnold previews what will be on Music 101 this weekend.
