Each month, NZ on Air sends out its regular New Tracks CD (formerly Kiwi Hit Disc), intended primarily as a promotional tool to encourage commercial radio stations to broadcast local music.

William celebrates the fact that artists such as Bokeh, Aldous Harding and Nadia Reid can be included, especially when their songs can sometimes crack the five-minute mark.

But he feels bound to point out that even with such a wide artistic scope, the discs can hardly include everybody, so delights in playing a track by the Auckland duo Alargo from their recent release Central Plateau.
