Talking in circles
Since the late 1970’s Southland artist and musician John Husband produced a daily comment piece, first for Radio New Zealand, and then on Foveaux Radio – which developed into his own long running talk show. Since retiring from radio in 2001, John has now returned to present a selection of his old scripts to show how much (or how little) has changed since the years they were first read. It’s a wonderful trip back in time, and though provoking too! “Talking in circles” airs at 12.10pm and 5.10pm every Monday.

The show airs 6-9pm on Mondays and repeats Thursdays from 9-11pm.
