8:30 Friday Night Live

9:07 Country Life
After the usual wrap of farming conditions, we head to Waikato to meet Welsh couple Marc Lloyd Jones and Nia Wyn Jones who have been keeping tabs on the New Zealand dairy industry for years. They moved here in 2016 and this year were named Waikato's share-farmer of the year. Last weekend they were announced runners-up in the NZ Dairy Industry Awards' national share-farmers competition.
Then it's off to Colville, regarded as the gateway to the northern Coromandel. It sits at the end of windy unsealed roads, has pohutukawa fringed beaches on its doorstep, and boasts a strong, vibrant community.
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
When he's not making documentaries about competitive tickling or danger tourism, David Farrier enjoys listening to music. In this week's Mixtape he shares five of his favourite songs.
