In Friday Night Live we go to Wellingtons Opera House in June 2014 for an energetic funk, filled set from soul sister Bella Kalolo.
9:07 Country Life
Country Life pops in to a pilot farm in Waikato where cows are wearing high tech collars which keep them behind virtual fences. They're also in Otago with a second-generation pig farmer and his 3000 pigs. The family farm was bought by his parents in 1954 and they were intending to milk cows but there wasn't enough suitable land to make it viable so started a piggery.
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.
