Audio Curios: Weather Forecast from Maranui FM

The weather forecast read by pupils of Lyall Bay Primary School (Maranui FM, 8 December 2014), followed by an advert for the station’s sponsor – Rita Angus Retirement Village. Maranui FM was set up in 2008 and is run solely by the pupils. The station has six on-air slots per day covered by up to ten students.
