Warning peoples! Flagrant abuse of the exclamation mark!
Starting Sunday 9th Paekakarki 88.2FM is recording live all week from our Wellington Road sleepout, bringing you fresh radio. Our trial monthly schedule mid May to June continues with no changes to the different shows timing
EXCEPT! BONUS! shows will be repeating during the daytime too, offering you escape from the drudgery of the commercial bandwidth. Generally most shows repeat the day after their evening broadcast. The exception are several late night shows where the language aint for younger ears.
Here it is from Sunday 9th June to Saturday 15th June (click on the image to look at a bigger version).
From Monday we share the airwaves with the birds of Kapiti Island 50/50. They call 11pm to 11am, we squawk 11am to 11pm.
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! We introduce one new show that’s been cooking for a while. Former Paekakariki Expressed editor and media hound Don Polly’s jazz show Blues to Bop, sounds of the 40s to 60s. Premiering Thursday 5pm and repeating Friday 11am.
Also to recommend our new Paekakariki School Show (Tuesdays 8pm, Thursdays 2pm) which this week features our youngest studio guests yet – the six year olds of Room 2 Paekakariki School (pictured) who were completely buzzed to read their stories and be interviewed by the senior students.
