    Hi Paekakariki FM,
    Your radio station wakes me up every weekday morning via my internet radio. Always a bit weird as it’s your 5pm show that comes on at 6am here at this time of the year in the UK. The kids that present one of the shows are fantastic, funny and excitable and they play some great music too. Your radio station makes me think your town and its people are a brilliant community.
    Best wishes,

    Hi there
    I enjoy 99% of your programme material and I love the fact you have no ads.. this really frustrates me with other stations. I live at Raumati South and your 1W signal is quite ok here.
    I am a radio broadcast Engineer and deal with almost all the FM licensing stuff in the country. It would be great if you could increase your power so you have better coverage in the Kapiti area.
    There are options to do this, so I would need to deal with MBIE to progress. So am ok to assist for no charge.
    If you are interested please contact me 04 2993399. Otherwise If you are happy with status quo, that is fine… I understand

    Death Without Debt is launching its national campaign to end funeral debt this Saturday at St Peter’s Hall, 11 – 11.30 am. (see below).

    Any chance of this being advertised this week? I am also available for interview.

    Sorry for the late notice.

    You are Invited to the National Launch of Death Without Debt’s Campaign to
    End Funeral Debt
    The average cost of a funeral is $10 000. Far more than many households can afford.
    A combination of: dysfunctional government paperwork requirements, an unthinking default of responsibility on the part of the medical profession, and an increasingly predatory funeral industry driving a culture of “paying” one’s respects, is pushing many households into dire straights.
    Death Without Debt’s Solution is Simple, Elegant & Would Take Just One Government Directive . . .
    Come along, hear about it.
    St Peters Hall: 11 – 11.30 am,
    Saturday 17th September
