Just a wee heads up: I’ll be presenting the very first Wellingtonista Radio Show on The VBC tonight. The VBC is the student owned and operated/community LPFM radio station broadcasting on 88.3FM, based at the Kelburn Campus of Victoria University of Wellington, in New Zealand.

I’ve had little luck picking up their signal on my radio — which is odd given that I live quite close to the transmitter (I think I’m in the shadow of a hill) — but the streaming feed ( works just fine. The show will go from 7 – 9 pm, NZDT (GMT+13). The studio line is +64 4 463 9994 if you feel like ringing up and abusing/encouraging me.

Things are in their infancy, but expect the show to grow and grow and take on a life and form of its own over the early weeks of the year, with contributions from many of the writers here.

From Tom:

It might be worth pointing out that the streaming link requires iTunes or WinAmp (or other software on other platforms), as it doesn’t work with Windows Media Player.
