Thursday night on the Adventures of the CoffeeBar Kid

We talk to Katchafire, who are set to do a gig at Lower Hutt's Station village over the Xmas Break. 

Eight strong and straight outta the Waikato, Katchafire have been at the forefront of NZ reggae for some ten years. Now making serious inroads in the US, the band return to their natural environment in support of their most recent album, the platinum-selling On The Road Again.

Opening for the band is Ladi6 - our own homegrown soul diva whose unmistakable smoky voice has graced tracks by The Adults, Shapeshifter, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Scribe and Opensouls, not to mention her own top selling, award winning (including the prestigious Taite prize) albums.

And we also interview Carol Bucknell -author of Contemporary Gardens of New Zealand.  Author Carol Bucknell and photographer Sally Tagg have travelled the length of New Zealand to capture more than twenty of our most impressive and interesting modern garden designs. The result is Contemporary Gardens of New Zealand, a stunningly photographed book celebrating some of the best contemporary gardens our country has to offer. With gardens ranging in style from cutting-edge minimalism to landscaping as architecture, Contemporary Gardens of New Zealand offers you the experience and enjoyment of a garden trail, all from the comfort of your own home.  Carol Bucknell is a garden writer and landscape designer. She is currently the gardens editor for Your Home & Garden magazine and also writes about gardens for Home NZ and Next. Contemporary Gardens of New Zealand is the second book she has written in collaboration with Sally Tagg.
