Why a New Website?
Written by Bruce on March 29, 2018
Waiheke Radio has a lot of history, and it’s more than frantic geeks rushing around, repairing antennas and puzzling over software. Over the years Waiheke Radio has built an impressive archive of audio material collected from the community over the years. Treasure in this trove includes:
- Live performances
- Candidate interviews when election time rolls round
- Public debates and meetings
- Interviews with local figures
- A whole heap of music and radio shows
- Conversations on art politics and much more
This incredible archive has now been organised, categorised and presented to the community is a searchable, browsable library – essentially an audio history of this fine island.
Wants to know what the candidates in the last local body election promised ? – we know.
Want to choose from over 1000 hours of great music for your next party? – stream it all from our website
Fancy knowing what’s going on in your community? – you’ll need to listen!
And what’s more it grows week by week, new podcasts are added weekly and the library grows.
Want to know the best part? It’s all yours Waiheke, a gift from the team at the radio station, our Local Community Board and our fantastic sponsors.
So dig in, you never know what you’ll find.
