NZ Music Month on Screen

For NZ Music Month – Radio with Pictures (and more) is on Screen in Wellington



In May, otherwise known as NZ Music Month, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision's Wellington cinema is bringing a line-up of the best of 'aural Aotearoa' to their big screen. The line-up has something for everyone – Wellington music fans will be able to choose from a selection that includes the Topp Twins, avant-garde musician, Philip Dadson, a homegrown opera and many more.

Jackie Hay, Ngā Taonga Group Manager, Outreach and Engagement said, "We're delighted to bring a strong visual element to Music Month so it's fitting that we have in the mix right through May multiple episodes of the ground-breaking television show, Radio with Pictures. At the time it opened up access to a world of music not given air time on popular radio. Those with fond memories of the 60s, 70s and 80s, will be able to take a trip back to places like Auckland's Gluepot and Christchurch's Stage Door and relive some really special performances.

“We're also excited that one of the show’s most well-known presenters, Karyn Hay will be live in our cinema on Thursday 31 May for an exclusive behind-the-scenes talk about her days on Radio with Pictures”.

The full line-up of screenings is available at ngataonga.org.nz/music
