Radio Shows on NZCMR

In May 2021, Joy returned to one of her favourite passions – Radio Broadcasting. Previously she had done 12 years with AM1206 Community Radio in Hamilton, NZ from 1993 – 2005 presenting The Rock’n’Country Show which was hugely popular in the region so returning to the airwaves is a dream come true.

New Zealand Country Music Radio (NZCMR) Station owner John de Burgh encouraged her to do a couple of shows so with a huge variety of her own personal music collection plus access to the stations library, Tuesdays and Wednesdays were set aside for shows.

Tuesday and Wednesday is from Midday through to 2.00 p.m. focusing on Indie and Classic Country.

Both shows are recorded as they go live to air and are replayed early hours of Thursday and Saturday mornings 1.00 a.m. – 3.00 am (NZ) Time which suits overseas listeners.

A new show has now been added on Monday from Midday – 2.00 p.m. which promotes NZ Artists only. This show is pre recorded and played at that time. We have a wealth of talent here in NZ and this is an amazing opportunity for those recording Country Music to get their songs heard. Make contact with Joy and send quality Mp3 recordings through to or to John at the Station.
