Paul Radich: Music refreshingly different

Paekakariki FM personality Paul Radich, his wife Karen and their three children came to Paekakariki from Lower Hutt. Both Paul and Karen work in Wellington, requiring frequent stays in the city. But the beach and the village are home.

Paul hosts the Rad Radio show Sat 2pm & Thurs 11am. Usually he has a friend or three in the studio to co-host the show that features that refreshingly different indie music. Discussions about this newer and developing ‘independent’ musical genre are worth hearing.

Spare time (such as it is for Paul) includes his community involvement, and restoring a 1974 Holden Monaro. This year Paul was re-elected PICI Chair, the governing organisation for Paekakariki FM.
