The Tuesday Wire with Noelle McCarthy
Producer: Jen Craddock, David Belgrave

12:00 - News with Rebecca.

12:15 - Brent Eccles, concert promoter.

REM's the latest big name act planning to snub Auckland in favour of Christchurch and New Plymouth. Earlier this year, David Bowie did a one-off NZ gig in Wellington. What's Auckland doing wrong? Will building the 12,000-seat new Qay Park Arena make any difference? Brent Eccles of Frontier Touring fills us in.

12:45 - Beth Wood from Unicef.

Unicef's weighing in on the debate about underage abortions. National MP Judith Collins wants the law changed so that girls under 16 who want abortions have to tell their parents. Doctors have slammed the idea. Now Unicef's sent a letter to MP's warning that the law change could put girls at serious risk.

1:00 - Green Desk. Green Dean's back in the b studio with his weekly look at environmental issues.

1:30 - The magazine review with Imogen Neale.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial. From the desk of Noelle McCarthy News and Editorial Director Radio 95bfm
