MANGO MUSIC with LES - Modern ANd Golden Oldies


Tena koutou katoa.

I’m Les Robb and I’m your host on Mondays and Thursdays from 10am to noon.

During that time I play my choice of modern music and golden oldies, or “mango music” for short, with lots of kiwi tracks included.

You can let me know your favourites too: by email or phone.

And I’ll keep you informed with what’s on in our community, and beyond.

Join me on Mondays and Thursdays from 10am (NZDST).

Mango Music with Les, on 88.1 fm, Howick Village Radio. Also now on 107.1 in Botany/Flatbush.
