Today on The Wire

  • bNews with Renee
  • There's all sorts of shenanigans going on over at AUT today as they celebrate PRIDE week.
  • Holidays - we all want more of 'em...Mike Egan from the hospitality association explains why he thinks the Holidays Amendment Bill will set us back 50 years. He thinks restaurants will close on public holidays rather than have to pay their staff double time and a half.
  • The Warehouse - is it good for small town New Zealand? The Bay News are running a campaign to keep the Warehouse away from their town, and local businesses. We speak to the Editor of the Bay Times today Warren Grant.
  • Americas Cup land's been passed back to the council, Abigroup fail to come up with the money for the proposed Superdome Auckland is desperately in need of, and Eden Park are considering opening their doors for out door festivals and concerts... What is up with Aucklands public space, or rather - lack of it? Scott Milne from the Auckland City is our guest speaker today.
  • And Green Dean has discovered, that NIWA has discovered a new species of fish on the sea along the Norfolk Ridge and Lord Hows Rise.... they are by all accounts, freaky looking creatures.
  • All our regulars join us today, Chris Garland with the AUSA report, and Monica Dwyer with the Magazine Review..
  • Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
