Thursday Night on the Adventures of the CoffeeBar Kid - A tribute to Nelson Mandela. RE-BROADCAST 12 HOURS LATER!

Thursday night's show is a tribute to the 20th century's greatest man. Greatest, most humble and inspirational leader.  We look at the life of the man through a special documentary and also at New Zealand's greatest moment - or worst - the 1980 Springbok tour.  And we play jazz from Soweto and other music from that part of the world in dedication to Nelson.  See you then - from 7.30PM NZDST and now, if you missed it, re-broadcast 10 hours later at 7.30am NZDST on www.groovefm.co.nz
