9:07 Country Life
Clint Meyer is growing New Zealand's hottest chillies near Waimamaku in the Far North, using them for sauces and flavouring salt and chocolates for sale on line.
Also... it's calving time on dairy farms so to find out how it's going and the work involved, Country Life is in the thick of it on Mark and Debbie Van Beek's farm near Hokitika on the West Coast.
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
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 Mixtape selector is drummer Julien Dyne who has been behind the kit with Ladi6, Lord Echo and most recently on Tom Scott’s Avantdale Bowling Club project.
Julien gives us a masterclass on some of the deepest cuts from his extensive record collection. He speaks with Yadana Saw.
