That’s Te Pae this week Sunday-Friday 12-2pm and 6-8pm on Paekakariki 88.2Fm (streaming with Louise on community notices halfway through, actor Tola Newbury in about a cool performing artwork with for St Peters Toi Amai, (26 April) and author David McGill gives us a reading from his book launched at the museum yesterday, Stamp in the Creek. Your host is Mark Amery.
