Kia ora and welcome to the Wellington Access Radio newsletter for March 15! We're all getting excited about CubaDupa next week - keep your eyes out for our special CubaDupa Week programme schedule, chock full of festival content. We also had a lovely afternoon tea for Neighbours Aotearoa month, hosting cakes and tea for our friends and neighbours. Then this Saturday Pip and Amy will be running a Wellington Access Radio stall at Out In The City. Plus, brand new programmes starting this week! Phew, busy times!

Ngā mihi, the Wellington Access Radio team.

CubaDupa Week is almost here...

As mentioned in the last newsletter, next week is CubaDupa Week at Wellington Access Radio! We have recorded some great interviews and music to share in the lead up to the festival and will be attending CubaDupa on Saturday to record even more. 
We'll be putting out a special programme schedule for the week - so if you are planning on having any CubaDupa content on your show, please let us know at
Thank you!
