This week we hear singer-songwriter, television presenter and baby whisperer Anika Moa, performing songs from her album ‘In Swings the Tide’ in October 2017 at The Kings Arms Tavern.
Radio New Zealand engineer Andre Upston was on deck to capture the performance, ensuring RNZ Music listeners a front row seat.

And we meet a couple who were idealistic hippies a decade ago ... making organic wine in a shipping container, and they're now "corporate hippies"  with three vineyards and five boys under 11.  They're Nicola and Geoff Wright from Wright's Wines in Gisborne.
