The Game in NZ next week - win a chance for him to visit your school!


The Game arrives in New Zealand next week for his first ever NZ Tour which kicks off at Auckland’s Logan Campbell Centre next Wednesday.

Earlier in the day the rapper will make an appearance at an Auckland school as part of a Mai FM promotional competition called ‘The GAME was in MAI CLASS’.

The winning class will have the Game speak to them about how he became a successful rapper and movie star, plus he’ll drop a free-style and join them in a class photo too!


“The phones have been running hot for concert tickets giveaways but even hotter for this competition!

This is an exciting opportunity for Mai FM and the winning class, as it is not every day that an international hip hop icon agrees to go into an actual classroom

and share their story about the struggles they had to overcome to achieve their dream!“
says Natasha Meleisea, Marketing Manager, Mai FM.

The competition runs until the 7th August and to enter, listen to Mai FM for more details.

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
