Nights for Friday 10 November 2017
7:07 Sonic Tonic - Rubbish
I prefer to be flippant about acting, just in case I'm rubbish. Tom Hollander
If people see me having dinner with a beautiful woman, they immediately believe that I'm having a love affair with her. Of course that's rubbish. I'm not a playboy! George Clooney
Logic! Good gracious! What rubbish! E. M. Forster
If you're going to make rubbish, be the best rubbish in it. Richard Burton
We think; therefore, we often talk rubbish. Robert Webb
I wouldn't like my fans going through my rubbish. Olly Murs
8:12 Something for the Weekend
This weekend sees the start of the ACC Paralympics New Zealand Open Day Series. Starting in Wellington with dates in New Plymouth, Auckland, Tauranga, and Dunedin over the next couple of months, the open days give disabled people the chance to find out about Para sport opportunities in their area. We get the whole story from gold medal winning Paralympian swimmer Mary Fisher.
Neil and Liam Finn are making an album together for the first time. They sit down to share the journey with Music 101's Alex Behan and discuss their upcoming January tour of small-town community halls all over New Zealand.
9:07 Country Life
This week Country Life is looking at Environment Southland's Water and Land 2020 & Beyond project which aims to maintain and improve the region's freshwater. Over the past 4 months 600 farmers have been voicing their concerns about the proposed outcomes of the project at public hearings in Invercargill and Gore. Cosmo catches up with some of them.
Also Mela Juice is a family-owned juice company based in a packhouse 3km from Greytown. Apples are trucked in from Hawkes Bay and are bottled according to their variety.
10:17 Late Edition
A roundup of today's RNZ News and feature interviews as well as Dateline Pacific from RNZ International.
11:07 The Mixtape
For the latest series of The Mixtape, RNZ Music invites guests to compile a C60 of local sounds, and talk us through their selections.
Musician Tama Waipara is the Senior Programme Manager of the Auckland Arts festival, a job he says is 'addictive'. It's the reason he hasn't released an album of his own since 2013's 'Fill Up The Silence'.
He joins RNZ Music's Kirsten Johnstone to presents a selection of musical highlights for the March 2018 festival.
