This year's Waitangi Day concert in
The Square is a classic case of ebony
Kia Ora FM and Access Manawatu
have joined forces to organise the free
It is the first time the two com-
munity stations have collaborated but
they hope there will be many more
The headline act is The Babysitters
Circus, whose catchy song Everything's
Gonna Be All Right is No 19 in New
Zealand Music Chart.
The band is Opshop's Jason Kerrison
and Tim Skedden, Jasmie Greenslade
(better known as hip-hop artist
Maitreya) and Selwyn Leaf.
Working with Kia Ora had been on
Access station manager Fraser Greig's
radar for some time and the Waitangi
Day concert made perfect sense''.
Kia Ora programme director Lisa
Check had been thinking about the
station's involvement in 2012 Waitangi
Day celebrations and Destination
Manawatu brought the two stations
We have been running ever since,
it's been great,'' Mrs Check said.
The concert is a community event
run by community radio, she said.
Kia Ora FM has relationships with
fellow iwi stations and it was nice to do
the same with other Palmerston North
Mr Greig said there was a raft of
excellent community radio in Palmer-
ston North -- Access Manawatu, Kia
Ora, Radio Control and The Gramo-
phone Room -- which deserved to have
a higher profile than they did.
Community radio does not have the
marketing budget commercial stations
do so they need to take every oppor-
tunity to promote themselves.
Mr Greig said Waitangi Day was a
celebration of the signing of the Treaty
of Waitangi and the two stations were
joining forces to celebrate something
intrinsically part of New Zealand life.
It's a collaboration, no one station is
better than the other, everyone does
what they are best at and shares that
with the other. There are no egos,
which I'm thrilled with.''
The concert was about bringing
people together and the diversity of
acts reflected that.
Mr Greig will stage-manage the
concert, a role he is experienced in, and
Kia Ora is organising the powhiri.
Kia Ora host Peter Cleave will once
again be the master of ceremonies and
volunteers from both stations will help
on the day.
Opening the concert is Palmerston
North Boys' High School student Josh
Ellery, who has made a name for him-
self with his covers on YouTube of
Also performing are Tama K and the
Creed, which brings soul and punk to
its covers and originals, and Tomorrow
People, a Wellington eight-piece which
performs sunshine reggae''.
The concert is in the events quadrant
of The Square from noon till 4pm on
Monday. There will also be children's
activities, craft and food stalls, and
