We spoke to good ol’ Garry Moore this morning, the God Father of our fair city because we really wanted to hear his opinion ob Bob Parker’s media attention during the quake aftermath.

Next up was a Dr. of psychology - William Helton - who’s been looking into dogs of all shapes and sizes and comparing their intelligence, or at least working out whether size has anything to do with the ability to be trained. It’s kind of hard to explain, so have a listen
 
We spoke with some very interesting people this morning, a Professor and a Doctor. First up with the Professor, John Blunt who has been involved in researching sponge growing off the coast of Kaikoura, that has remarkable properties that could be used in the fight against cancer. Anything to do with moving forward in the battle against the Big C is…
 
We also had a really interesting talk with a gentleman by the name of Gordon McKenzie. Now he belongs to a group called The Aetherius Society, who for lack of a better explanation (and everybody basically wants to know) believe in aliens. Oh there’s much more to it than just that, so you should definitely check out the link to their website, but on…
 
How about Phil Goff ay? He’s a good man, and as per usual on a Wednesday morning he called at his allocated time (8:15am) for a chat about all things current in politics. Today we covered the Pike River Coal liquidation, why Labour has pulled its support for the Government’s Maori backed law change of the foreshore and seabed issue, further evidenc…
 
Also on the show this morning was that bonny wee lass, Sam McSorley, our resident medical herbalist. Today Sam brought in her dog Basil who was VERy cute and they talked to us about alcohol.

we had a yarn with a fella by the name of Tony who works at Place Makers in Motueka - the recently awarded ‘Best Town in New Zealand’. We wanted to speak with someone who wasn’t involved with promotions or any marketing to do with the town, someone who was a salt of the earth kind of person who lived and worked there and knew what went into make th…
 
So the highlight of the show (apart from a visit from Spanky) this morning was a chat with Daisy from Kitty Daisy and Lewis - a family band from the UK who are playing at Al’s Bar on the 14th Jan. Check them out, they’ve got a great old school rock n roll feel and really get your foot tapping. Here’s an interview with Daisy, she’s the eldest of her…
 
Also on the show this morning I had a chat with Kiwi explorer Mike Allsop who’s on a crusade to track down mysterious artifacts - the hand bone and part of a skull of a Yeti. There is a long and ingrossing story behind the theft of the bones, which Mike is determined to get to the bottom of, and return them to their rightful owners. Have a listen t…
 
I spoke with Michael Bennett who directed a wonderful New Zealand film called Matariki, it had its world premiere at Toronto Film Festival which is HUGE! Michael’s background is in writing/directing in TV an short films so having his first feature debut over in Canada is really exiciting. The flick stars some notable Kiwi personalities as well as D…

Or at least make sure they’re gettin…
 
Well I was at it alone this morning, as Spanky is off for a few days in preparation for his ordination this coming Sunday when we will emerge THE REVEREND Spanky Moore. Very exciting! Anyhoo, I think the show went OK and thank you to everyone for getting involved and all your encouraging texts. I even conducted an interview or two, first up was Jim…
 
Also on the show this morning, we spoke with Barb Warren who looks after the Ohoka Farmer’s Market across the Waimak there. She’s recruiting more stall holders, in particular wanting students to give it a go - you just need produce or items that you have made yourself. There are a couple of gaps in the market - specialist meats is one in particular…
 
Right, on the show this morning Spanky had a chat with his dear Dad (who I had the pleasure of meeting face to face last week when he dropped off some amazing organic lamb). We talk with Spanky’s Dad usually when we’re changing seasons, and especially now we’re heading towards a formidable drought. Never quite sure why this segment was called Let’s…
 
Also on the show this morning, we had a chat with the CEO of that powerful organisation NZ Pork about the abolition of sow crates - or at least the phasing out of them, with the plan to have them all gone by 2015. Sam McIvor is the man, he gave us NZ Pork’s feeling about the move which is all well and good, but then just at the end of the interview…
 
Big show today, probably most notable was the announcement of this year’s Best Demo Competition winner. It’s an event for producers or musicians who have recorded, mixed and produced a finished track of any genre. Anything goes but you must primarily have had involvement at one stage during the writing and production of the work. The judge of the w…
 
Next off the rank was a man by the name of Jason Northover, now he is the manager of the MAC or Military Activity Camp based right here in Canterbury. You may have seen a lot of press about this programme lately, but we wanted to skip the politics and get straight to the nitty gritty - what actually happens at these camps? Obviously they receive a …
 
It was all very last minute but we managed to get hold of CCC councillor Yani Johanson on the old dog ‘n bone for a discussion about Dave Henderson being made bankrupt. Looks like Dave won’t be offered the oppoortunity to buy back his properties that the Council bought off him, mainly due to the quite significant fact that he is now bankrupt, so wh…
 
Brightening up our morning and I know yours too, was Labour leader Phil Goff joining us on the show for his fortnightly catch up. We wanted to know his thoughts on the Pike River mine royal commission enquiry, what he hopes will come from that and also if he knew of Nandor’s anti mining blog. We asked Phil what he thought of Wikileaks too, because …

This morning I featured a segment entitled Self Massage. I’m not even going to go into, but if you’re feeling tense, or stressed there IS a way you can relax and I believe my system will help you. Shut your eyes and listen to the podcast, or rather, start it then shut your eyes. Yeah, do that, then let me know how you feel.…
 
It kind of slipped under the radar a little, but this weekend just gone Oamaru was host to the Raleigh 20 Nationals.

I had a chat with Stephen…
 
Hey well, what a sweet show we had this morning!

This of course is to search for signs of the famous Pink and White Terraces, which vanished after the 1886 eruption of Mt Tarawera. We learnt a little more about the unmanned sub mari…

This morning on the show we had our ever popular segment: Monday Conundrum with our ethics guru Mr. Mike Grimshaw.

OK, so …
 
We had a busy show today, first up we had a chat with Paul Lonsdale who is the manager of the Central City Business Association (we didn’t eve know such an organisation existed until now). He told us of their mission to rid the inner city of thuggery with the awesome power of classical music. It’s called the Mozart Effect and results have shown it …
 
We were also really lucky to have a chat with author and humanitarian Mike Kim over in the States.

Mike went undercover in China to in…

She used an i…
 
Kicking off our Monday was ex Christchurch Mayor, Mr. Garry Moore. Now that he’s not in the hot seat, Garry can quite happily give his opinion on the city without incurring the wrath of the greater community. But he’s a wise man and we wanted to hear his thoughts on the rebuilding of parts of our fair city and in particular, rebuilding/rejuvenating…

Also we had the absolute pleasure of having Christchurch ex-pat Lindon Puffin in studio this morning for a chat and a song. He has come down to play the Band Together concert in Hagley Park tomorrow arvo so it made sense to get the wee gem in. Have a listen to Lindon give us the latest in conspiracies, or has he softened during his time in Auckland…
 
We had an interesting chat with a man by the name of Gerard Kennedy who is an expert on the subject of something called Sexomnia.
