First time listener as i live in Auckland. Great informative listening. Well done.


Thanks glad you liked the interview. I have also passed on your comments to The Dowse to include in the Horti Hall Archives, many thanks for that. Regards John

Remember many many dances there on Saturday night. Used to help organise The Hutt Valley Youth Club ( AKA The Taita Youth Club ) Jamboree's that we used to hold there once or twice a year with more than ten bands playing from ( usually ) 2.00pm -- 10pm. Great crowds came from far and wide to enjoy the music and groups of the day. Some groups came from out of town as well.
Also helped to organise our annual company ball there with some great bands in the 70s & 80s.
Great days great memories.
