Controversial radio show hits the airwaves

Controversial radio show hits the airwaves in Wellington

The Porritt Show, Munt FM

Wellington radio listeners have hit the jackpot with the launch of Munt FM 107.2, the official station for Massey University students in Wellington.

Launched last month, the station has a New Zealand music quota of 60% and is 100% commercial free, thanks to funding from Massey University Wellington and M@WSA, the students association.

Wednesday nights from 8pm is “The Porritt Show”, a controversial mix of music, jokes, and political discussion. This week the special guest is National Party Leader Bill English.

Previous guests have included Kenny the Busker and Kevin Doyle, a former employee of US President George W. Bush. Wellington Mayor Kerry Prendergast will be feature next month.

Last week was perhaps the most controversial show, as hosts Nick, Steve and Phil presented “The Drinking Special”, in which they became intoxicated live-on-air. This is believed to be a first in New Zealand broadcasting history.

Regular visitors to http:// may recognise one of The Porritt Show’s contributors – Sneaky R. Wilson, author of Hot Goss from Parliament, who provides celebrity goss from Hollywood and around the world.
