Spectrum for 11 August 2013

From Spectrum, 12:05 pm on 11 August 2013

This Spectrum, first broadcast in 1976, marks the 150 anniversary of the settlement of Puhoi, north of Auckland, by pioneers from the central European kingdom of Bohemia. In the 1970s, descendants of the original settlers still retained their musical traditions and recounted stories reflecting a unique way of life and the severe hardships faced by the pioneers.
