The Rock'nRoll Wire with Troy Ferguson

12:00PM bFM News with Jen. Weather & Surf

12:30PM New Music Review with Kane.

1:00PM Con Artis - D12. The D-12 are the Detroit hip-hop crew who, according to their tongue-in-cheek new single, merely feature as a backing group to their "singer" Eminem. Today, a live phone interview occurs where Con Artis may or may not talk about the D-12's forthcoming follow-up to their Devil's Night album; their place in hip-hop; who has to sit next to the literally larger-than-life D-12 member Bizarre on aircraft; and maybe even their singer Eminem.

1:25PM Hello Motor City. US correspondent Ben Blackwell of the soon-to-be-legendary Dirtbombs' weekly phone-in from the endless rock'n'roll highway.

1:45PM Inside Track Episode 5. A report on the 2004 Resonate festival, featuring interviews with the participants and an analysis of what it all means to the local industry.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.

Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.
