Music Feature - Mike Chunn, Play it Strange

From The Weekend , 10:05 am on 29 December 2019

Play it Strange is a charity that promotes pathways for high school students to pursue creativity through writing songs, recording, and peforming them. 

It is the brainchild of Mike Chunn of Split Enz fame - and allows school students from across the country to write songs and participate in competitions run by the trust. 

The flagship programme is the The Lion Foundation Songwriting Competition - which is for aspiring singers and songwriters at a high school level. 

Mike Chunn joins Lynn Freeman to play a selection of songs from this year's competition - including the winning song.
