Radio NZ campaign meets Martyn "Bomber" Bradbury - Triangle/Stratos-1



Bomber Bradbury
What a find. I have  never caught this show before. Sure I know the station -    Triangle/Stratos TV is a bit if New Zealand treasure - basically community television with a bit of an edge sitting on one of the more obscure corners of the New Zealand UHF spectrum. But I had not come across Bomber before, although I'm told he has an impressive track record - ex Craccum, ex Channel Z, ex Alt TV and ex Rip It Up editor.   Love him to bits! Especially the no nonsense bias. Much more Bomber here.

For those needing more context - believe me, despite the lean to a combined  Grey Lynn/Cuba St  possie of left/liberalism,  this is a totally spot on skit on NZ politics in the last week - MMP review - Auckland Super City logo competition - Christian doctors and abortion - Radio NZ - and of course Prime Minister John Key's relentless and apparently never ending teflon coated relaxed patronage/popularity.


Radio NZ - Auckland protest
I came across it via various blog posts -like this one from Ethical Martini -  on the Save the Radio NZ campaign begun on Facebook. I'm also been asked via Twitter to spread the word on the Auckland version of the Radio NZ  protest. More Facebook details , here

Sorry, I really don't get this Radio NZ thing. There is absolutely no reason why they can't continue to deliver an excellent service on their existing budget. NZ needs to do a better job at managing its finances. We need to deal with that. The vast majority of NZ businesses and orgs are small operations that run on a shoe-string... if Radio NZ can't manage their way through this then they need to bring in people who are up to the job. I'll tell you what, how about we take the money from library funding to give Radio NZ ... or raise taxes... or borrow more money...

FAIL. Shame on you Paul, you didn't let my comment go through. You talk a good talk on web 2.0 but don't seem to deliver on it. Where's the conversation with people who disagree with your stance?

Sorry for the delay in clicking the publish button n your comment. I don't really like having it there - but if you don't moderate coments you end up with a whole swag ofspam .

I will switch it off again to see what it is like now - but I can totally assure you I ave no issues whatsoever with your comments - dnt agree with them - but that's fine. Kind of what libraries are all about - lots of different ideas - ideologies sharing the same shelf.
