The New George FM Breakfast Show with Clarke and Aroha

28 March, 2014

The New George FM Breakfast Show with Clarke and Aroha Starts Monday

From Monday, Clarke Gayford will return to George FM as one half of the new George FM Breakfast show. He will be joined by Aroha Harawira who moves to breakfast from her daytime slot.

After a three year hiatus, Gayford is pleased to be coming home to his George family. “I would be lying if I said I was looking forward to my alarm going off at 5am, I’d also by lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to getting back to the best music station in the country,” said Gayford.

Having been with the station for five years, the step up to breakfast is a natural transition for Aroha Harawira. “Since I started out in radio I have been attempting to bribe every Programme Director I’ve worked with in to giving me a shot at hosting a breakfast show,” said Harawira. “Finally someone was corrupt enough to give me that shot… and I’m really freakin’ excited.”

George FM Programme Director, Willy Macalister says, “Everyone at the station is stoked to have Clarke and Aroha together as the new George FM Breakfast show. The two of them are good friends off the air so we should expect some good banter and even better music from them. Roll on 6am Monday!”

George FM Breakfast with Clarke and Aroha from 6am Monday, March 31st, 2014.

George FM is New Zealand’s leading dance and electronica station, broadcasting from Ponsonby Rd into the Auckland and Queenstown markets. You can also tune into George FM on Freeview and via the popular George FM Apps.

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. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

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.
