5 - FRIDAY MORNING MUSIC SPECTRUM feat ‘OLD FANGLED’
Paris takes time off from the professional golf circuit to present this weeks Friday Morning Spectrum. Joining her will be the lovely Amy – stepping up for another edition ‘Old Fangled’. This week Amy takes a look at  a Richard Hell & the Voidoids’ ‘Blank Generation’. Along with Patti Smith and Tom Verlaine, Richard Hell was one of the great punk-poets to emerge from the ferment that was CBGB in the late seventies. After teaming up with Verlaine in an early incarnation of Television and joining Johnny Thunders in the Heartbreakers, Richard Hell founded the Voidoids and released Blank Generation in 1977. The music was jittery and jagged, the lyrics were wild and witty … and legend has it that Hell introduced the safety pin and ripped t-shirt to punk style. Join Amy on Old Fangled as she shares fun facts and fine tunes from one of American punk’s seminal albums, tomorrow at 11am in the Friday Morning Music Spectrum.

6 - NATURAL SELECTION – ‘This Heat’ w/ Grant McDougall. Sunday 11th November, 6 – 8pm,

The show will focus on prime This Heat songs, plus live tracks and other rarities, related solo albums, plus tracks from a few bands they gigged and recorded with, such as The Pop Group and the Raincoats. There will also be a song or two by bands influenced by them such as Dunedin's own Dead C.

7 - RED BULL STUDIO LIVE SESSIONS – Thurs 15th November / 3.30pm – GOON
The Red Bull Live Sessions stream every week across the bNet from the fancy Red Bull Studios in AK. Next week – Auckland indie pop rockers Goon

8 - NEXT WEEK ON THE LOCAL
Next week The Local hosts highly regarded sound engineer Dale Cotton in the studio. Having come to prominence as the 'fourth member' of High Dependency Unit, his recording (and engineering) talents have been in demand by New Zealand's discerning underground and has lead to recording the likes of Die! Die! Die! and (more recently) Hannah Curwood. 2003 Also saw the release of his first solo record under the moniker Conray, a surprising blend to those of us expecting something more akin to what he was known for recording from other bands. Dale was also head hunted to remaster the infamously gutless Toy Love album, which he lists as a career highlight. We'll try to find out his other favourite New Zealand music when he joins us live in the studio this Thursday.
Join Dale Cotton on The Local with Dave, next Thursday the 15th November from 7-9pm

Rachel Pommeyrol Review: Anahera - Social Criticism, Through The Family Frame

The tragic event which seems to be central to the play is actually a pretext for its writer Emma Kinane to deal with a lot of complex social issues. Katie Wolfe, the director, manages to give life to these complex and contemporary stakes, while keeping a certain distance. More>>
