Ahoy.....From the mothership

Simon Morton of This Way Up talks to Roberto Carvalho from Lyttelton, who loves 3D printing and has built his own from scratch. Now he’s trying to spread the word on 3D printing in schools.

Kathryn Ryan from Nine to Noon talks to 26 year old Paul Rosolie, who’s a bit of an Indiana Jones naturalist, explorer, author, and rainforest and wildlife specialist, who ran away to the Amazon from New York aged just 18. Now he has specialised in the western Amazon for nearly a decade. He runs a conservation project called Tamandua Expeditions that uses tourism to support rainforest conservation. Among his many adventures, Paul has traveled with poachers into deep jungle to document the black market trade in endangered species and has explored a previously undocumented ecosystem that has come to be called the 'floating forest'. 


During Music 101 on Saturdays they have a segment calledIntroducing which gives newer or less-exposed musicians two minutes to describe themselves and one of their songs. Trip Pony, with her song Daze, featuring JayKin.

Anika Moa could be credited with discovering Hannah Harding. She was busking on the streets of Geraldine, trying to raise the funds for a ticket to Anika's show that night, and ended up on stage supporting the headline act. It was a sweet story that gained her national attention and a new friend. Harding released her debut album under the moniker Aldous Harding this week. Ben Edwards of Lyttelton Records and Marlon Williams co-produced this first record. Nick Atkinson of Radio New Zealand National Music had never met Aldous Harding so he began by asking Marlon to point her out.

On the new Sunday Morning show with Wallace Chapman, Down the List written by Dave Armstrong, explores Prince William, Kate and wee George’s tour of NZ and how it’s a great opportunity for electioneering politicians to display their 'nice guy' side.  Produced by Radio New Zealand’s Drama department.
