Centralines Sports Show

Saturday 8am-9am

Join Tim “Coach” Ewen for the latest in news, views, and interviews from the wonderful world of sport on the Centralines Sports Show 

There have been many memorable guests on the Centralines Sports Show over the years but in Coachs view it will be hard to top two former Central Hawkes Bay College students who have made their mark in rugby, Dominic Bird and Emma Jensen.

With his rapier wit, quirky sense of humour and one liners, he is quicker than a Pete Burling tack on Te Rehutai,  he is without a doubt the  brightest star in the Central FM line up – and he keeps the music going after the Centralines Sports Show on Saturdays to midday and is back pumping the tunes on Sunday afternoon.

Join us as we load up the juke box with the best hits from the 60's and 70's. 

The 1960's was a time when excitement ran rife in the music scene. Expressive, lyrical tunes, hip gyrating pieces, and numbers that provoked the thoughts of all who heard were produced. It was a time when social issues were daringly broached.

The 1970's saw Funk, Soul, R&B, Pop, Hard Rock, Soft Rock and Disco cement their place in the music world . The late 70s also witnessed the birth of another young music style: hip-hop. …
