Summer Noelle - Tuesday 30th December 2008
Today after the 10 o'clock news/weather Noelle McCarthy learns a bit about the world of Golf. World Amateur Left Hand Golf Champion and founder of Golflinks.co.nzBrian Cronin talks about being a left hand golfer and gives us a few golfing tips.
When you tell commentator David Slack that he can talk about anything, he talks about everything. Due to time restrictions we will be looking at 2008 in review, politics and media. We will catch up with David again at a later date to talk Summer holidays.
Music 101 treats us to one of their live performances. Today French lounge/covers act Nouvelle Vague.
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.

War Correspondent, former Radio New Zealand Head of Current Affairs and Adventurer Chris Turver shares some of his memories and adventure stories with us.
The Year of the Frog is almost at an end.Dr Phil Bishop talks about how successful it was, and how the fight for our native frogs is ongoing.
'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
