In 2013 Tami Neilson, Marlon Williams, Dave Khan and Delaney Davidson joined forces to present The Grand Ole Hayride tour, a collaborative series of shows in a similar vein to the country shows of old.
9:07 Country Life
This week Country Life meets a couple who have based their international business in a tiny, King Country village. When their daughter was young they took apart an old deck chair to make her a swing. Now they hand-craft thousands of swings each year which are sold in up-market stores throughout Europe, the United States and Australia.
Lately with Karyn Hay is a late night radio show on RNZ National, with an eye on live events, an ear for music, a great sense of humour and a genuine interest in people and their stories.
11:07 The Mixtape
This week's guest on the RNZ Mix Tape is musician and composer Opetaia Foa'i.
Opetaia Foa'i is the creative force behind Te Vaka, the Oceanic music group that provided the sounds and songs of the Disney hit Moana.
He joins Dominic Godfrey to talk through six of his favourite songs and reflect on 20 years of putting Pacific music and stories out into the wider world.
