Audio Curios: The Magic of Radio

Entertainer Charlie Frye bends a couple of spoons in front of a very baffled Kim Hill (Saturday Morning with Kim Hill, 24 October 2015). Charlie and his wife Sherry were in the country for the Wellington Magic Convention held over Labour Weekend.

They were interviewed during Saturday Morning with Kim Hill, which is collected by Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision as part of the 24/7 capture of Radio New Zealand National.
