Mourning the Queen is bonkers

Gareth Watkins made this Official Information request to Radio New Zealand Limited

The request was successful.

From: Gareth Watkins

Dear Radio New Zealand Limited,

Could you please supply me with the complete audio Q&A (including intro/outro) between hosts Kim Hill and Corin Dann, which broadcast sometime between 7-7.30am on Thur 15 September 2022 on Morning Report on RNZ National.

It is the audio where Kim goes on about the ceremonies relating to the late Queen being 'bonkers' and Corin agrees.

The interview is around 5-mins. I've tried to find it on your website, but weirdly you haven't put it on-demand. Please supply as audio or as a transcript (whichever is easiest for you).

Yours faithfully,

Gareth Watkins
