Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm for Friday 22 January 2016

1:10 First Song

'Alabama at Night' - Robbie Fulks. 

1:15 Arrest Over Unpaid Student Loan - Laura Harris

A Cook Island maths teacher arrested for not paying back his student loan, has been allowed to return home, after his family made a payment to Inland Revenue. Forty-year-old, Ngatokotoru Puna, appeared at Manukau District Court this morning, after being arrested at the airport on Monday. It was the first time the Inland Revenue had used its power to detain people with unpaid student debt. But the New Zealand Union of Students' Associations (NZUSA) says the action sends a 'chilling' message and says it could turn students 'into permanent refugees'.

1:25 Orokonui Ecosanctuary - Elton Smith

Yesterday Jesse had the pleasure of releasing one of 10 Kiwi into the Orokonui Ecosanctuary. Tip, Daredevil, Carter, Sheeran and Falkor were among kiwi chicks introduced, after the 'kiwi creche' and reserve were declared stoat-free. Orokonui Ecosanctuary's Conservation Manager, Elton Smith, is with us, to tell us more about what has been going on.

1:35 Finding Supernova - Brent Nicholls

A New Zealand amateur astronomer has played a key role in the discovery of what could be the most powerful supernova ever detected. Nelson man, Brent Nicholls, has his own observatory in his back-yard. And he's been working with Ohio State University, and what's known as the ASASSN project - or the All Sky Automated Survey for Supernova, to find the exploded star. Brent is with us now from Mt Vernon Observatory.

1:40 Critter Of The Week - Nicola Toki

DoC's threatened species ambassador, Nicola Toki is with us, to talk about rock wrens!

1:40 Favourite Album

Calling Out of Context - Arthur Russell. 

2:10 New Zealand Society

The Aids Foundation says it could get rid of new HIV infections in New Zealand within ten years. It says New Zealand has dealt very effectively with the epidemic through condom use, but now there are new prevention tools that could bring it to a halt.

2:20 NZ Live - Phil and Tilley

Phil Howell and Alex Tilley are on a working holiday in New Zealand from the UK.  For the past 18 months they have wandered through the country and played as many gigs as they could fit in between surf breaks.  When their work visas run out in April they hope to go to Australia for a year and replicate what they've achieved here musically.
