9:07 Country Life 

On Country Life we meet a trail angel as she feeds and waters cyclists on the Tour Aotearoa, and visit a family who has converted their dairy farm into hop gardens. They were in the thick of harvest at Holmdale Farm near Wakefield when producer Cosmo Kentish-Barnes turned up.

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.

He's made albums with Bic Runga, Anika Moa, Dudley Benson, and more, and is RNZ Auckland's long-time Music Engineer - meaning often when you hear a band playing live on this station, Andre is responsible. He joined Tony Stamp to discuss his career, and share seven songs he personally recorded.
