Hidden Talent is a new segment on Afternoons where we attempt to uncover hidden or secret attributes of various guests.  Maybe today we should rename it, additional talents because our guest has made no attempt to hide what he has done for years outside his normal profession.

He worked as a lawyer in Dunedin from 1968 and in 2004 began the first of two terms as the 56th mayor of the Edinburgh of the south.  He has also taken positions as Chair of the Otago Community Trust,  the Chinese Garden Trust, the Otago District Law Society and was head of the Gambling Commission, the government-appointed panel that regulates casinos.   But it's his other life we want to talk about to day with Peter Wing Ho Chin CNZM (Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit.)
