This week on Te Pae with DJ Kaia Hawkins:

Miriama Grace-Smith and Jack Cromie in are in-studio to talk about their refurbishment of the former Salt Tea Towers fish n chip shop site. Miriama and Jack are repurposing the space as a gallery.

Paekakariki poet Maria Macmillan is in to chat about, and read from, her recently published second book of poetry called “Tree Space”.

Kaia Hawkins has been all the way to to Te Papa this week and has sent back a special in depth report about the current Ngati Toa exhibition Whiti Te Ra The story of Ngāti Toa Rangatira.

Next week is our last live show before the Christmas/Holiday period sets in. Sunday 7 December we’ll be coming to you live from the Te Pae end of year BBQ. Expect to hear lots from familiar people in our community, as well as our lovely regulars.
