    As part of this week's Saturday Breakfast Show on Waiheke Radio co-hosts Simon & El are offering Free Showers to everyone in the community between 8am-10am, and looking at the 'no rain for  10 days' weather forecast, for some of us it might well be worth taking up!


    Co-host Simon said "basically we realised that most of the island is being hugely effected by the current water shortage and so we thought we would do our bit for the community" and that's exactly what they're doing.  They're asking people to book by email beforehand and to bring their own soap and towel.

    Simon added "obviously we'll have a bit of fun in the process. If anyone wants to come on-air and chat about their 'lack of water woes' then that's great but it's not obligatory'.  El jokingly suggested that "a preference would obviously be given to 'young South American females'".

    So if you're really short of water and in need of some quality shower time with some locally sourced, council owned water then (to book) please email with your name and contact details and Simon will return an email by Friday 8pm with a shower-appointment time, all courtesy of Waiheke Radio, 4 Korora Rd, Oneroa.

    The future for residential houseboats is unclear as the Auckland Council Unitary Plan, currently being considered, places restrictions on the locations where boats can be permanently occupied. Waiheke is one of, if the not the, only place in the Auckland area where people reside on boats outside of marinas. While some cite the houseboats as being iconic, others decry them as an eyesore or express concern on the impact on neighbouring public amenities.

    On Saturday 11 May Shirin Brown spoke to of the occupants of a Waiheke residential houseboat, Ursula and Lance.

    Here at Waiheke Radio we love to hear from our listeners, and we love to get as many people on air as we can. So it was great to recieve an email from the other side of the world email from Lydia from Dublin, Ireland.

    I have a 3 year old daughter, Erin, who listens to Waiheke Radio in Dublin while she eats her dinner every night (her mother is a Kiwi and her grandparents live on Waiheke so she knows it well!). We noticed that you play jingles from listeners and wondered if you might play Erin's? Please find an mp3 file attached!

    It's an absolute pleasure to add your sting to our playlist Erin. And in case it doesn't play while you're eating your dinner, you can listen right here.

  • 10/22/13--03:08: Waiheke Radio's 5th Birthday
  • This Labour Weekend Saturday will mark five years of community broadcasting by Waiheke Radio. From the ashes of Barry Jenkin's radio station 'The Beach' rose a volunteer community group that believed there was a place for a radio station that would inform, entertain and educate, reflecting a Waiheke view on our island and the wider world, unrestrained by commercial restrictions.

    The first people involved were self taught amateurs, carry-overs from the days of The Beach, although we were joined by a couple of people who actually knew what they were doing when it came to broadcasting and getting a radio station on air.

    We had to start from scratch. Firstly we had to raise money. Then we constructed a studio . . .

    . . . and built a transmitter.

    The first test transmission went out mid 2008 . . .

    . . . and we were officially open by Gulf Islands councillor Denise Roche on Labour Weekend the same year.

    There have been trials along the way, like the time our Oneroa transmission aerial blew over in a 80+ knots storm .

    Since our inception we've gone from strength to strength, shifting to new improved premises and making technical advancements.  But what we are most proud of is that we have had hundreds of Waiheke Islanders on air, we've created an archive of many hundreds of hours of content of Waiheke people and issues and we've been able to present innovative and people focused radio that genuinely reflects our community.

    We would like to thank all who have volunteered, the council who have provided us a community lease, the businesses and individuals that have supported us through sponsorship, fundraising or offering time and expertise, everyone who has been on air and our listeners.

    We'd be honoured if you join us at our 5th birthday celebration open day on sat 26 October at 4 Korora Rd, Oneroa.

    Here's a podcast of our first birthday in 2009
