Transcript arrow_drop_down


For Today (I remember your smile) is one of this country’s enduring feel-good anthems from the 1980s and it’s with great pleasure that PJ chats with one of the song’s writers and performers, Nick Sampson, as our next NZ Music Month feature.

Forty years ago, and out of Dunedin, the Netherworld Dancing Toys were playing energetic and captivating concerts around the country, quickly growing in popularity following a memorable performance at Sweetwaters 1983, with Nick and the late-great Malcolm Black upfront on vocals, guitars and most of the songwriting duties.

    Why don’t you play the songs in full during the podcast?

      Hi Kevin. Thanks for your comment. The simple answer is our broadcast licence does not cover reproduction of the audio on a hosted platform. There are options for us utilising a third party hosting service that would allow for this reproduction, but as a community run, charitable radio station, this would be a further expense to our budget. Plus, hopefully listeners will search for the tracks themselves on Spotify and the like, and the artists will benefit from a small amount of revenue. We hope you enjoyed the episode none the less. Cheers.
