Split Enz Milestone for Radio New Zealand


Split Enz Milestone for Radio New Zealand

Radio New Zealand has announced a landmark agreement with Warner Music Australia, Mushroom Music Publishing and Split Enz Management which will allow free public access to on-line podcasts of Enzology, the acclaimed ten-part radio documentary of the Split Enz story.

Radio New Zealand Chief Executive, Peter Cavanagh, said the agreement was a significant milestone for New Zealand music, allowing free public access to a valuable audio resource about the iconic band.

“ Radio New Zealand is proud to lead the way by instigating this formal podcast agreement with a major music label, reinforcing our public commitment to make quality programming available to our audiences wherever, whenever and however they want to receive it. ”

Enzology, the Radio New Zealand National documentary, covers the story of Split Enz from their beginnings in Auckland as an acoustic ensemble in 1972, to their final concerts as an Australia-based, internationally acclaimed pop band in 1984.

Today’s announcement coincides with high public interest in an upcoming New Zealand tour by the re-united band.

Each of the 10 Enzology episodes takes the title of a Split Enz studio album, and includes recollections from each member of the band, record producers and managers.
The series is illustrated with music from all the hits & numerous album tracks, plus previously unreleased demos, live recordings and rough mixes gathered from the Enz members’ personal archives and those of Radio New Zealand Sound Archives.

Split Enz strove to be original in their music and their look. The hit songs I Got You, My Mistake, I See Red, Message to My Girl, Poor Boy, Six Months In A Leaky Boat, Dirty Creature are now part of New Zealand and Australian culture. Around the world, Split Enz continues to attract fans as new listeners discover their music.

Episode one of Enzology: The Beginning of the Enz will be available from Saturday afternoon, 22nd December, and a new episode will be added each week for ten weeks. Episodes will then remain available for download for at least twelve months.


Listen on-line or download Enzology episodes from Saturday 22nd December.
