Tuesday 18 August
Today we're wishing legendary entertainer Sir Howard Morrison Many Happy Returns on his 74th birthday!
A galaxy of stars are joining us to celebrate Sir Howard's big day, including special guests Ray Columbus, Dame Malvina Major, and Carl Doy!
But that's not all! Sir Howard's friends and colleagues from his fifty-plus years in showbiz are ready to party. We'll have performances from entertainers Russell Harrison, Taisha, Rewa Ututaonga and Soprano Timua Brennan.
We get the backstage scoop on Sir Howard from two of his quartet colleagues Hori Bennett and Tony Williams, and we'll also enjoy numbers by Elizabeth Marvelly and the Musical Island Boys.
Meet the whanau! Sir Howard's wife Lady Kuia and children Donna, Richard, and Howard Junior will be with us. His niece Kahurangi Maxwell will also sing for us.
We also chat with journalist Rosemary McLeod about going on tour with Sir Howard, and former Minister of Maori Affairs Koro Wetere will reflect on Sir Howard's work at the ministry.
It's an action packed show so make sure you tune in from 9am!
