After a 13 hour flight Paul Smith aka The Twitch Hiker touched down before dawn in Auckland City. MsBehaviour of theG33kshow.com spirited him straight to the Kiwi FM studio for a coffee and a chat.

His aim is to travel as far from his home (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) as possible within 30 days. That means getting to Campbell Island, or as close to it as he can. Paul talks about his travels so far, how the idea came together, the people he has met, the problems he has encountered and his prospects for making his way around New Zealand.

Anna Coddington is one of New Zealand’s foremost heroines of independent pop music, as is clearly evident on her debut, self-produced album “The Lake”, due for release in June 2008. Coddington has been quietly kicking around New Zealand’s music scene for some time now. You may have heard her singing in the background of some well known tunes by artists like Bic Runga, Anika Moa, SJD, Dimmer and more, or in the foreground of a handful of casually released pop gems by her bands Handsome Geoffery and Duchess.

In this live session recorded for the Radio Wammo show on Kiwi FM Anna plays three tracks called Never Change, Hold You Here and What a Shame off her debut album The Lake.
