Seven Days: The Country Giant

Television (Full Length) – 1977

I want to find out: what are people over in Ōhope doing?
– A wannabe DJ gunning for the breakfast spot
Out of all the organs we do have in the shop, this surely must be the grandest.
– A Whakatāne organ seller sells his product
Is the breakfast disc jockey an attractive proposition to the girls in town?
– The interviewer asks the hard question

– From the narration

– A disgruntled listener on why he still tunes in
