8:10 Paekākāriki’s Village Vinyl Fair and Village Dance returns this Saturday.

The vinyl fair, running 12noon to 3pm, and free to attend, features both stalls from visiting vinyl junkies and many records donated by the community to support the radio station, which features over 35 locally hosted radio shows and an active Paekākāriki School radio programme, running from the school’s former dental clinic. For entertainment the station’s DJs will be spinning discs all afternoon and into the night. 

We're joined by organisers Pat McIntosh and Mark Amery.
