Music 101 on National Radio

Music 101 on National Radio

Contemporary music fans get something new this week when regular programming returns to the National Radio schedule on Saturday afternoons. Radio New Zealand’s popular three hour music show Homegrown will now be called Music 101.

Music 101 broadcast on National Radio’s 101FM frequencies around the country, can also be heard on AM frequencies, and is live streamed on the Radio New Zealand website

The existing Home Grown name, with its decade long tradition of support for local music, is retained within the programme for a significant special component focusing on new New Zealand artists and releases with a specific spot for unsigned bands.

National Radio Music Production Manager, John Pilley, says the Music 101 change reflects the developing content of the programme following its revamp in September last year. “Music 101 continues to feature live interviews, music features and documentaries, focusing on contemporary New Zealand and international music, and exploring music issues and stories from a New Zealand perspective” Music 101 is hosted by Sarah McMullan, and produced by Sam Wicks. The programme retains all its popular features, there’s something for everyone: Nick Bollinger provides his expert insights and opinion on new releases; bands and artists get candid with roving music mix reporters; Trevor Reekie asks the tough questions; listeners get exclusive acoustic sessions … and the iconic and long running New Zealand series- Musical Chairs- continues to profile people in the music industry.
