It’s August!

Well, it’s nearly Christmas! But don’t let that spoil a perfectly good month! On ReCooper8 this month, Christmas doesn’t even get a look in… it’s all about the OLYMPICS instead! Man, wasn’t it fantastic? Still missed the bloody synchronised swimming though… that’s four Olympics in a row now that I’ve missed my opportunity to watch the world’s best at the world’s oddest sport compete for Olympic glory.  Oh well…. with no sports candy on the telly, at least I can write my blog…

The big event on ReCooper8 month is my interview with David Savage (or Sav as he’s more commonly known), the founder and director of Elevate Coaching (ReCooper8’s sponsor).  He’s chosen a couple of cracking tracks (including Pendulum by the Little Bushman) and opens small but fascinating windows on the strangely not dissimilar worlds of leadership training and wedding photography!  My thanks to Sav for a great interview, and the several small glasses of Baileys!  Actually, that did make it feel a bit like Christmas…

In the last few weeks I’ve also had the pleasure to meet Steffen Kreft, talented artist and filmmaker, and organisor of this year’s Greytown Arts Festival.  So, tune in Thursday 16th August at 8pm (92.7fm locally, or click ‘listen live’ at to hear about the Festival, and details as to how you can help raise the funds to make it a real success.

Keeping up with the art theme, you can also hear about the public art Featherston can look forward to in the near future.  Called Windgrass, the eight metre high piece, which will be located opposite the library, is described by the artist, Konstantin Dimopoulosas, as “an ‘unapologetically’ powerful artwork that clearly defines Featherston as the Gateway to the Wairarapa”.  It’s great that Featherston is set to gain a public landmark, and I’m looking forward to following the progress of this project over the coming months.

So, enjoy the show – this month you can listen on Thursday 16th and 23rd August at 8pm on 92.7fm in NZ or click ‘listen live’ at Arrow FM, and also at 10pm on Sunday 19th August.

Thank you!
