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.

This week's selector is Sandy Mill, voice you would have heard on many records and advertising jingles. But seldom on her own. She speaks with Yadana Saw about why it took nearly three decades to finally release her debut EP A Piece of Me
