Waitangi Day Special TONIGHT on Night Owls 3MBS 103.5 FM

Midnight tonight is technically midnight tomorrow, which is….WAITANGI DAY in NZ!

In other words, an excuse to hear the finest kiwi composers and performers on Night Owls, midnight-2am, 3MBS 103.5 FM. That means Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Douglas Lilburn, Teddy Tahu-Rhodes and more!

Check out the list below.

AND, don’t forget to mark Friday Feb 12th in your diaries – PASSION FOR DANCE‘s first ever show starts at 8pm on 3MBS. It focuses on the BALLETS RUSSES,a revolutionary company that gave us classics such as The Rite of Spring and The Firebird and features music, interviews, scandal and history. Don’t miss it.

The show is technically hosted on the show Friday Night Special, so if you hear me mentioning that don’t be alarmed 🙂
