Waiheke Radio Presents.. 'Searching for Sugarman' special screening @ the Waiheke Cinema on Fri 16th Nov 8pm
This music documentary is one not to be missed! Singer, songwriter & poet; Rodriguez (from the mid 1970's) This is a documentary that explores the man, myth and legend whose ground-breaking album 'Cold Fact' released some 40 years ago - is brought back from obscurity. This year's 'Sundance Film Festival' award-winning Doco 'Searching for Sugarman' explores the story of two South Africans quest to answer some of those questions and bring his music to life!
Rodriguez was renowned for his poignant lyrics and while the album flopped in his native USA, it was picked up by a bootleg album released in South Africa. It was actually the hey-day of the anti-apartied movement that rocketed his fame into the limelight.. In South Africa, he was bigger than Elvis.
This is a story of today because I feel that his lyrics are timeless - the issues remain the same and the music has certainly carried it forward to the present.. as if it were yesterday..
If you've ever wondered.. Check out this special screening 'Searching for Sugarman' at the Cinema this Friday 16th Nov @ 8pm.
See you there!

Waiheke Radio, now in it's fifth year of production and broadcast of community radio is proud to mark World Radio Day, February 13. World Radio Day is an initiative of UNESCO.
Radio is the mass media reaching the widest audience in the world. It is also recognized as a powerful communication tool and a low cost medium. Radio is specifically suited to reach remote communities and vulnerable people: the illiterate, the disabled, women, youth and the poor, while offering a platform to intervene in the public debate, irrespective of people’s educational level. Furthermore, radio has a strong and specific role in emergency communication and disaster relief.
There is also a changing face to radio services which, in the present times of media convergence, are taking up new technological forms, such as broadband, mobiles and tablets. However, it is said that up to a billion people still do not have access to radio today.
The objectives of the Day are to raise greater awareness among the public and the media of the importance of radio; to encourage decision makers to establish and provide access to information through radio; as well as to enhance networking and international cooperation among broadcasters.
