Safe and Sound
Nov 24 @ 3:00 pm – 3:30 pm

From our friends at Free FM in Hamilton

A show about animal welfare and rights, produced by Sandra Kyle who hosts the show, together with regular presenters Lynley Tulloch, Paul Judge and Sarah Oliver.

Using music, news updates, guests, panel debates and discussions, Sandra  plans to cover animal welfare and rights and plant-based diet recipes and other issues related to our use of animals, including the environmental impacts of farming.    Safe & Sound covers such topics as factory farming, dairy farming, animals and the law, duck shooting, using animals in sports and in entertainment such as horse and greyhound racing and rodeos, using animals in experiments, fish farming, chained dogs, puppy mills, breeding animals, using euthanasia as a last resort, keeping birds as pets, how ‘pests’ are dealt with in New Zealand – and much more.

On the show’s name SAFE refers to advocating for animals to keep them free from harm  and also refers to our support of the organisation SAFE (Save Animals from Exploitation). SOUND refers to using the airways to discuss animal issues and animal rights, and also to another meaning of the word sound, which is to be true and rigorous.

Dr Glam and Demelza’s Inflammable Spandex Cafe
Nov 24 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Imagine yourself in the middle of a dark ocean. The only thing you hear is a distant Morse code over a retro beat.

A silky voice asks, “Are you my mother?” The sparkly lights get closer. There’s people drinking coffee, vodka and fluffy ducks. They’re chatting and laughing. “Where did you get that lame boob tube from?” . . . “From here! Dr Glam and Demelza’s Inflammable Spandex Café!” . . . “That’s a mouthful.” . . . “I know, but it’s not fattening.”

The beat grows louder as you climb onboard the shimmering café. Chill out and relax, dudes.

Let Ian (Dr Glam) Chapman and Demelza May take you there, every Friday at 6pm on Otago Access Radio. Chur!
