It is awesome just to hear New Zealand Music on the Radio for 2 hours on a nice Saturday Night in, especially hosted by a Young Maori guy that can actually speak Maori fluently. It just inspires people to actually start learning how to speak Maori properly. It is awesome to hear such a lovely language on the radio and also throught.
