1.15 Pike River Mine Re-entry Plan

Pike River families have just announced a new mine re-entry plan at Parliament, in an attempt to convince the Government it is safe to retrieve the bodies in the mine. It comes after families set up a road block to stop Solid Energy working to seal the mine. RNZ's reporter, Emile Donovan, has been at the announcement.

For today's great New Zealand Album we go back to 1987, the year of the Inaugural Rugby World Cup.  New Zealand declared itself Nuclear Free in that year too and the first Lotto draw was held.
In Wellington, a popular country band was getting set to release their debut album.  They were The Warratahs and they had held audiences spell bound for more than a year at a well known nite spot known as the Cricketers Arms.  

The following year The Warratahs found themselves nominated for five New Zealand music awards and they won, for best Country music album

With us today to remember "The Only Game In Town" is lead singer Barry Saunders.
