Rim D. Paul on Musical Chairs
Rim D. Paul is a Maori showband legend. After performing with the Maori Hi-Quins and the Quin-Tikis, he went solo in 1967 and played some of Australia's biggest cabarets, toured the Asian circuit, and became a star on TV music shows. Best known here for the 1960s hits 'Poi Poi Twist' and 'Runaway', Paul's start in show business came in the 1950s. His father Tai Paul was the top dance band leader in Rotorua's music scene. Chris Bourke spoke to Rim at his home in the Bay of Plenty.
