The Tuesday Wire
with Noelle McCarthy

12.00 bNews with Will. Weather and surf.

12.15 Paul Yeo. CEO, TAANZ.

In the wake of last weekend's Bali bombings, the Government was quick to remind kiwis that travel advisory warnings have been in place for Indonesia since 2002. Anecdotal evidence suggests some travel agents have not been stressing the message. Are they shirking their duty, or do holiday-makers have a responsiblity to research destinations before buying tickets?

12.30 Dr Jim Headley. Otago University.

Will Turkey get it's wish to become a member of the EU? And why is British Foreign Minister Jack Straw championing its cause in the face of hesitation from existing members?

1.00 Alistair Kwun. Aotearoa Hip-hop summit.

The Hip hop summit will take over Aotea Square this coming weekend. One of the organisers is in studio to tell us whats going on.

1.15 Nick Mc Carthy. Franz Ferdinand.

A chat with the genial guitarist conducted from the back of a cab in Seattle. Their latest album "You Could Have It So Much Better (with Franz Ferdinand)" is out soon. If the first single is anything to go by, it'll be a cracker.

1.45 The Magazine Review.

Aucklanders can tune in at 95 on the FM dial.
