Hello there you all,

Do you have nothing to do this weekend? Come and catch the last week of our two faboo NZ shows "everything. now" and "The Quarter Pounding"... 2 shows with two topics close to this one armed bandit's heart, and very good too might I add!

And during the day? BATS would like to unashamedly invite you to check us out in "The Big Look-see" - A chance for you to poke around, and help us make an instant kiwi play... and get your friends to come! See below for more.
