At ten past four: The Secret Life Of Music Magazine Editors

Music magazines like Rip It Up, and NME used to be the monthly bible for finding out about new music.
In recent years new media has left the music magazine industry scrambling for ways to stay relevant.
Kirsten Johnstone speaks to editors past and present:
founder of Rip It Up magazine Murray Cammick talks about bringing music information to a generation of New Zealand music fans; Ashley Bird, ex editor of UK Metal Magazine Kerrang! tells of realising his teen dream; and Real Groove editor Duncan Grieve speaks about keeping current, and surviving in the face of declining sales.

And Troy listens to the solo record by one half of Swedish electro-noir group The Knife- Fever Ray.
