Song You Gotta Hear

1:10 PM. Recommended by Kate Robertson, the music editor at Victoria student magazine Salient. She says Jamie xx's debut solo album In Colour is one of the best albums to be released this year.

Tasers - Keith Locke

2:10 New Zealand Society - Lisa Thompson

Auckland Council's Long Term Budget plan projects around 716,000 more Aucklanders using the regions roads within 30 years.  That's the equivalent of the entire populations of Christchurch, Wellington and Dunedin. On top of this, New Zealand's freight traffic is set to also double in the same period, with freight volumes in the Auckland region to increase by nearly 80 percent, with a large majority being transported on the city's roads.  It's therefore likely that heavy vehicle drivers and cyclists will face increasing tension as congestion grows on our roads.  In order to alleviate some of these potential risks, the Cycling Advocates Network is delivering a series of workshops, aimed at educating professional drivers and cyclists about sharing the road.
