Koroi Hawkins presents a daily current affairs programme that delves deeper into the major stories of the week, through a Pacific lens, and shines a light on issues affecting Pacific people wherever they are in the world.
8:30 Friday Night Live
For this Best of Friday Night Live we go to The Crystal Palace in Auckland to hear NZ Music Award winning artist Mel Parsons and her band perform songs from her three independently released albums.
9:07 Country Life
Country Life this week learns about gumboot throwing and meets an award-winning Taihape local who promotes the sport. The show also takes you to a farm in Duntroon in North Otago. Millions of years ago whales and dolphins used to swim where sheep and cattle now graze and their fossilised remains can be found in the cliffs on the farm.
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

She's also the author of multiple prize-winning novels, and has been the bass player in several bands, including some Flying Nun luminaries.
