This time! Electric fishing on Te Pae and more! Sunday 16th-22nd Feb


After some equipment issues preventing Te Pae, your community radio show,  broadcasting last week we are back this Sunday with Kaia Hawkins hosting. This week on Te Pae (Sunday to Friday  12-2pm and 6-8pm) Mark Amery goes on a field trip, electric fishing in Wainui Stream and a whole lot more. In the first hour there’s live music with Jerome and Elan Mills, the fishing report features guest Mark Galbraith, and from the Station Precinct Trust, Anthony Dreaver joins us to talk about the ‘treasures’ within our community that are in the care of the Trust.

Our issue of the week is freshwater native fish – its little known diversity and Wainui Stream as one of the best places in the region to see native fish. On a field trip we do some fish-stunning with Dr Mike Joy and are joined by local eel feeder Aaron Richardson and Geoff Osgood. Community Notices are with Louise Thornley, Squawk is with the new chair of Paekakariki Community Board, Jack McDonald and we end with spoken Word from poet Rob Hack.

Elsewhere on your local airwaves (streaming on your computer from we’ve heard many beautiful shows already which replay until the end of the month. A feature on beautiful composer Arvo Part on Classical Futures, NZ 60s band The Pretty Things on Cecil and Wellington, lots of old time irreverence on Murray’s Miscellany, the first week at Kapiti College on the A n T show and an interview and feature with Daniel Beban of Orchestra of Spheres on Welli Studio Sounds. And that’s just a dip in the ocean. Here ‘s the schedule. Happy listening.
