Kia ora! Talofa! Konichiwa! Hola! and Gidday!

Half way through the holidays and half way through a very special weekend. In fact we have another special day of remembrance coming up next week, with ANZAC day.  These days are so important to celebrate life, love, family/whanau and this beautiful world we live in. 

Have you caught up with the latest book reviews?  Well, look out for our latest video, too, it’s with Bryan & Bobby as we prepare for Pink Shirt Day, next month.

We announce the winner of our Upstart Pack and give away a brand new prize.

And we share some of  the cool jokes we’re receiving from you.  Send us your favourite joke, now, and make sure you give us your phone number so we can ring, if we get the chance.

Enjoy the second week of school holidays!

Big hugs today and every day.  Meet you at the radio, next weekend.

Radio Star

You could be our next Radio Star! We’re looking for a brand new Radio Star and that star just might be you!

(**Update**)
Woohoo! It’s been decided – we’re off to Hamilton to meet our latest and greatest Radio Star!  If you’re in the Waikato on Saturday the 16th February, and want to be my co-host, I’d love to hear from you. Register Now, and tell us a wee bit about yourself.

Gabby Jackson is only 12 but she’s a young lady going places – often on her stilts!!! She and her sister, Isobella, take part in festivals all over the Waikato.

She’s super talented too and her dress won Best Dress in her category of the Hospice Wearable Arts Competition, in Taupo, last year!

Although she’d never been in a radio stations before she joined us at Free FM, Gabby is a born communicator so was fabulous as my co-host.

We love her joke about the ice fisherman, her review of Ruby Retfort and Friday Barnes books.  Gabby has some good ideas of what it takes to be a good friend too and it sounds like she has a heap of fun with her besties.

We look forward to seeing Gabby perform, on stage, one day and I reckon you should listen out to Free FM because I don’t think it’ll be long before you hear Gabby again, maybe with her friends!
