If you were choosing a New Zealand city to be a UNESCO City of Music, which would it be?

Christchurch and Wellington have produced many great acts of the years. There's the city famous for many of the Flying Nun acts that led to "the Dunedin sound", which is already a UNESCO City of Literature. But it's Auckland that, with the support of the City Council, is going to push to be this country's first UNESCO City of music.

Lynn Freeman talks to Anthony Healey from APRA and Mark Roach from Recorded Music NZ, who this week sought Council support - and got it.
