The Tuesday WIRE with Noelle McCarthy.
Produced by David Belgrave

12:00 bNews with Will. Surf and Weather with Noelle.

12:15 Rod Donald

The Black Caps are booked for a test series in Zimbabwe but the Green Party believe they should stay home because Robert Mugabe is such a bad old codger. The PM has said she wouldn’t be seen dead in Zimbabwe but it’s up to the cricketers to decide for themselves. Is it time for politics to be brought back into sport or is this all a storm in a teacup as it’s not 1981 and cricket is not rugby. We talk to Rod Donald about why he thinks the nation’s first XI should stay at home.

12:45 Peter Dunne

The United Future leader has been asking about New Zealand’s drug purchasing agency Pharmac. During Question Time he challenged the agency to justify its 'obsessive focus on cost-cutting' in preference to helping individual needs of New Zealanders. Health support groups, such as Diabetes NZ, have come out against the government’s drug buying policy. We ask Peter Dunne what is wrong with Pharmac and what remedy would he suggest.

1:00 Thespians Corner with Oliver Driver

Our man Ollie is back in the studio to tell us about the grubby world of Auckland theatre.

1:15 Arts Hole with Pocky

The lovely and charming Sarah Hopkinson is in the studio with a bag of swag. In it is an interview with culture-jammers The Wooster Collective.

1:30 Green Desk with Green Dean

The lean, mean, green, queen is in the studio with more eco-information for the masses. This week he is talking about those cute little seal cubs that the dirty Canuks are culling.

1:45 Mag Review with Imogen Neal.

Monday WIRE producer Imo gives us the latest and greatest in Magazines.

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