12:15 Amanda Lennon The Middle East has got even hotter in lately. The Syrian government has been accused of arranging two recent terrorist attacks, most notably the killing of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. The American’s and Israelis are putting on the pressure and the Lebanese are taking to the streets. This morning the Syrian backed Lebanese government resigned causing jubilation in the streets of Beirut. What does this all mean? Well we have Amanda Lennon from the University of Auckland to talk about it all.

12:45 Ross Wilson

The Council of Trade Unions has started a new campaign this week. It’s called A Fair Share – 5 in 05. The campaign is to demand a five percent wage rise for all its members. They say that despite strong economic growth real wages have remained stagnant. On the phone we have the voice of the campaign, Council of Trade Unions President Ross Wilson, who’ll tell us why he thinks all workers deserve a pay rise this year.

1:00 Thespians Corner with Oliver Driver.

Oliver Driver returns from the darkness and rock’s on in with an interview on his cell phone and dog on its lead. No really, he comes in with a dog.

1:15 Green Desk with Green Dean

Green Dean drives his solar powered car into the studio and grips out another interview from the Green Desk.

1:30 Patrick Ensore

The Editor of the Guardian is in New Zealand and because of the fame of the bNews team he asked nicely to be interviewed on the WIRE. We didn’t have anything much on at 1:30 so we said sure we’ll interview the editor of one of the greatest newspapers in the world.

1:45 Mag Review with Imogen Neal.

Monday WIRE producer and magazine critic Imogen Neal is back with her latest pile to adorn for your toilet.

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