Today on The Wire

  • bNews with Renee
  • Disco Pigs is a play from Cork, by Enda Walsh. Written in extraordinary Irish dialect, and described as James Joyce on acid, it features two characters Pig and Runt who are in love and out of control. Our Irish lass Noelle McCarthy catches up with director Tony Mc Caffery.
  • Is Auckland following suit? The Prostitution Reform Bill includes a provision for councils to work out their own place for brothels in the area. They can't ban them but can decide where they should go, and what sinage they can display. Today we speak with Juliette Yates as the City Development Committee considers these points.
  • Frontline, the pairing of 4130 and MC Con Psy are nominated in the bnet awards, and they're quite excited about it, we find out what it means to them.
  • And Green Dean talking about recycling mobile phones.
  • Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
