Ka Pai 96.1

Liam from Spreydon

I am a student at the New Zealand Broadcasting School. We are currently undertaking the mammoth (but exciting!) task of creating a radio station for this years 96.1 frequency. We are currently surveying to help inform the creation of our station and would greatly appreciate it if you could help us out with this process! It’s a completely anonymous survey and should only take 5 minutes. Please share with your friends, especially if they have kids. The more responses we get, the better the station!
