Rat III - The Rat is Back...

You may remember this rat about this time last year, and this rat last August.

Well, it's not over. Rat III thought he'd cash in and give it just one more go. I hope this is the last one, we all regret Police Academy 4 and Robocop 4 after all...


Happy Birthday Sophie!

June 14, 2008....

It's enough to make a Dad shed a wee tear. Whether it's happiness or sadness that she's growing up so fast, I'm not completely sure.

Meanwhile, on the boy front, Joey's nearly 4 months old now!

Gin Wigmore


From her myspace...

Gin Wigmore really gets it. She gets what it is to think you have it all, and lose what you loved the most. She gets what it feels like to be heartbroken, far from your family, in a self-imposed exile. The 21 year old singer-songwriter has taken her life’s ups and downs, held them up to the light, and crafted songs which speak to a universal experience of fear, hope, love and joy.

She came in this morning to see us so click here to listen.

The Warratahs...

New Zealand 1985 – at the height of 'new wave' and Kiwi pub rock - was an unlikely time to form a country band. However, a bunch of Wellington's musicians did just that. Called The Warratahs, the band's two-year residency at inner-city tavern The Cricketer's Arms drew increasingly large crowds, attracted by the mix of covers and originals in the style of Hank Williams, Jimmy Rogers and Hank Snow played in an acoustic style.

We got to talk to Barry Saunders on our Wellington Music morning too...

Upper Hutt Posse

The Upper Hutt Posse is a band named after the city of Upper Hutt. They were the most promising Maori rap group of the late 80s, early 90s.

We interviewed original member MC B Ware or Bennett Pomana at the end of last month and I've finally got round to sorting out the audio for you to listen to...
