Radio with Pictures
With Presenters Karyn Hay and Dick Driver
For many Radio with Pictures is the ground-breaking television show that not only enlivened Sunday night but also opened up access to a world of music not given air time on popular radio. From the mid-70s a generation stayed up late for RWP followed by the Sunday Night Horror!
Throughout NZ Music Month we're celebrating with nine Radio with Pictures episodes that will screen at 5.30pm, Wednesday to Friday and on Saturday afternoons in double-bill ‘featurettes’.
And we have Karyn Hay Live at our cinema on Thursday 31 May at 6pm. See what's she'll be doing here.
