Sweet Talk

Alessandra takes the funky personalities and stories from local community and shares them with you over a cuppa. Nearly always fun and hardly ever too serious.

Airing time: Live, 9-10am Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Replays same day at 9pm



Artists, poets, musicians, local community groups, writers, schools, the mayor, or simply friends – all are welcome.

If you have a message to get out, a call out for new members, an event to promote, you can join her as a guest. Contact the station on 06 751 3720 to arrange a date. Wednesday mornings you’ll usually hear Kris Johnson play new music.
