I sent the following email to Jim Sutton on New Zealand’s number one talk radio station Newstalk ZB  a few minutes ago. Jim is running a rather enjoyable show this evening.
Good evening Jim,
I would just like to wish you and all of your listeners, especially anybody affected by the Gisborne earthquake, a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Over here on this side of the Tasman we are having all sorts of odd weather, it was pouring rain in Canberra this morning and now there’s barely a cloud in the sky! We need the rain though, so if we could get more rain for Christmas that would be nice.
I enjoyed the version of “When a child was born” that you played a few moments ago. It was very nice.
Best of luck for the new year,
