Nights for Friday 2 November 2018
7:07 Sonic Tonic
You go through life experiences. Each record captures a different turning point in my life. Keith Urban
My countrymen: we have reached a turning point in our history. The choice is yours. Shall we venture into this brave new world, bright with possibilities, or retreat to the safety of our familiar but sterile past? I am for crossing the frontier. Ferdinand Marcos
8:10 Night Mail
8:15 Dateline Pacific
RNZ Pacific's daily current affairs programme covering the major Pacific stories of the week, with background and reaction from the people making the news.
8:30 Friday Night Live
In Friday Live this week we hear the high energy Supergroove. After an acrimonious split the band eventually reformed, and we join them from two raucous nights in October 2007 at Auckland's Kings Arms Tavern. Radio New Zealand engineer Andre Upston was on deck to capture the performance, ensuring RNZ Music listeners a front row seat.
9:07 Country Life
John Gray's spent years working with sheep. Now he's turning his attention to a farm pest and is combining his skills as a stockman, his trusty dogs and a drone to round up feral goats across New Zealand.
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… Choreographer, actress, Polyswagg dance queen and now singer Parris Goebel (aka Parri$) shares some of the music she loves, and speaks with Melody Thomas about creative process, personal growth and ambitious new projects.
