Summer Noelle - Monday 29 December 2008
Today after the 10 o'clock news/weather Noelle McCarthy gets a taste of what Summer is like with the Ward Knox's.
Chris Knox, Barbara Ward, John Ward Knox and Liesha Ward Knox all join us to share their talents and stories from 2008, and also past summers.
Showcasing some of New Zealand's top Comedic Improvising talent, ImprovFM will have you laughing and wondering about whether or not it was scripted...and possibly trying it at home.
After the 11 o'clock news Chickenman! by Dick Orkin
(Radio Hall of Fame, April 2002 by the National Association of Broadcasters) The 60s Radio serial has "aired in more than 3,000 cities in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and worldwide via Armed Forces Radio, making it the longest running radio serial of all time" (Radio Ranch). Many remember the serial from Adrian Cronauer's radio show, the inspiration for the feature film 'Good Morning Vietnam' starring Robbin Williams.
This is not to be missed. If you remember it the first time it was broadcast it will still have you laughing and just as confused. If you have never heard it you will become a fan in no time.

Founder of WORLD fashion label Denise L'Estrange-Corbet has had a busy year, and life. This year saw the release of her auto biography, Noelle speaks about the ups and downs, as well as looking forward.
Whether you are in to going to the Movies or just staying in with a DVD, our film reviewer Dominic Corry will help you with your decision making this summer. Today he looks at the best (and worst) movies of 2008.
'The Musings Of A Cricketing Ne'er-Do-Well'
Jack Perkins has chalked up 50 years in radio, the last 36 as a producer-presenter of Radio New Zealand National's long-running Spectrum documentary series.
But when he wasn't searching the country for Spectrum stories, he managed to fit in 30 years of top-level club cricket in Wellington.
Jack also writes pieces for a cricketing website. 'The Musings Of A Cricketing Ne'er-Do-Well' is a selection from his 2008 output, which combines ascerbic comment on the game with a rich store of memories. You can read more of Jacks 'Musings' on his blog 'The Bearded Inswinger' where he blogged for 8 months. Jack has also compiled some of his pieces in to a book. The book is 60 pages of his "memories and observations affectionate of the game but also ascerbic and tongue in cheek" (Perkins, 2008). 'Not Out! No Ball! Over!' (which is a contradiction by cricket's laws - if there's been a no ball it can't be over) will be out early 2009. For more information about the book email Jack Perkins
All this as well as great music and many suprises. Summer Noelle with Noelle McCarthy - 10-12 weekday mornings, on Radio New Zealand National.
