VOTE NOW - 2019 MAGNET AWARDS: IT’S THE U in RADIO U

“Student radio claims legitimate excuse for a music infested party”

Over the past decade, RDU has recognised it’s broadcast talent with the ‘Magnet’
or ‘U’ award for volunteering, long service and performance on-air. ‘Host with the Most’, ‘Best on Show’ and ‘Service to Station’ awards give our community the recognition they deserve, and highlights the talent and dedication coming through the doors each week.

Honouring the former competitions with the same names, the ‘Roundup’ Magnet Award for best live/band track of the year and the ‘Decknology’ Magnet Award for best electronic/producer track of the year are the NEW awards, that will join with the ‘Strange Attractor’ Magnet award to shed some light on the most unusual yet compellingly magnetic pieces on playlist for 2019.

It’s simply just one great Xmas party to finish up the calendar year. And now with a few more high fives!

PUBLIC VOTING NOVEMBER 1st – 30th

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

Howard Davis: Benjamin Ree's The Painter and The Thief

The Norwegian filmmaker had long been fascinated by art thieves who commit high-stakes crimes with a delicate touch when a chance Google search in 2015 uncovered a botched heist in Oslo. More>>


Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>


Howard Davis: Byrneing Down the House - Spike Lee's American Utopia

Lee does an admirable job capturing Byrne's stunning live performance of his latest album, but the real star of the show is the staging. More>>


Howard Davis: The Phoenix Foundation Friend Ship Tour Docks in Wellington

A sense of local pride was certainly running high at the Opera House on Saturday night, as the lads ran through a tasty little set drawn mostly from their latest album Friend Ship (splash out for Xmas on the shocking pink extra-thick vinyl edition). More>>
