Brought to you from Plains FM in Christchurch
“Faatauaina o Aiga” or in English “Focus on the Family” came about from the concern in our hearts for people dealing with family problems in the community.
For Samoans, the church is always closely related to general life. This is therefore a significant point in the structure of our programme. We do not separate faith and living, and so we have kept faith aspects together with the many topics of family, social, health and general life which have been discussed. Issues include the different roles in families, child abuse, family violence, suicide, asthma, alzheimers, and disabilities.
We started broadcasting from 2002 and we are still going strong. We produce our own programmes independantly from home each week.
Our motto – “For evil to flourish, the only thing the good people do is nothing.”
If you need encouragement, a boost in self esteem, something positive for you and your family, listen in. Every Friday from 3pm. This programme is produced by the Faatauaina o Aiga family.

If you are looking for a writing group in the Otago area, or just enjoy listening to writers reading from their own work, tune in to Charlie’s Angels; Twenty Four Years of Writing Together, every Sunday at noon.
Most writers benefit from being a member of a writing group, but groups in Otago are few and far between. The Otago Writers Network hopes to change that by helping writers to create new groups that cater to their specific needs.
The network was created by Kath Beattie’s Writing Group, a collection of writers based in Dunedin, UNESCO City of Literature, who have been writing together since 1993. On this series, writers read their own works tell you how they have benefited from being part of a writing group.
