9:07 Country Life
'Til the Cows Come Home is a not-for-profit cow sanctuary near Cust in North Canterbury. It's run by 19-year-old Jasmine Hubber and so far she's rescued nearly 200 cows and calves. While some are taken off her by other animal lovers, she lets the rest of her adopted herd see out their days on family-owned and leased farm land.
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.

Christchurch native and music industry veteran Charlotte Ryan is the new host of RNZ's flagship music programme Music 101. She joins Tony Stamp on the RNZ Music Mixtape to select some of her favourite songs, and to share stories from her long and varied career in music.
