09:20 Aviation analyst David Soucie on why MH370's still missing, a year on

This week a year ago, Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 took off from Kuala Lumpur, with 239 people on board, for what should have been a six-hour flight. It never made it - and it’s still missing. There is no confirmation of what happened or where the aircraft resides. Kathryn is joined for analysis by David Soucie, who has thirty years of experience working with the Federal Aviation Administration as an aviation safety inspector and accident investigator. He is the author of the new book, Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: Why It Disappeared and Why It's Only a Matter of Time Before This Happens Again.

10:05 World leading concert pianist Freddy Kempf

British concert pianist Freddy Kempf is in demand around the world performing, and increasingly conducting orchestras from the piano.

The 38-year-old made his debut with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of eight. But his adult career really began to take off when he didn't win the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1998. His third placing provoked a barrage of protests from the audience and the Russian press who accused some of the judges of bias.

Freddy Kempf is in the country to perform a series of concerts with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, which he will also conduct.

11:05 Marty Duda's artist of the week: The Pop Group

One of the first and most influential post-punk bands, The Pop Group came from Bristol mixing elements of reggae, dub, Krautrock, punk, funk and whatever else the four band members were listening to at the time. Their original run was short and abrasive releasing two albums and a handful of singles in 1979 and 1980. By 1981 they had disbanded, but not before leaving an indelible impression that lasts to this day. Nick Cave was just one of The Pop Group’s biggest fans and chances are other post-punk bands such as Gang Of Four, Wire and The Slits owe a huge debt as well. The band has recently reunited, completely intact and have just released a new album, 'Citizen Zombie'. It sounds as fresh, aggressive and dangerous as their records from 35 years ago. They play their first and only NZ concert Wednesday night at The Kings Arms.
