As we get ready to welcome a new year, and indeed a new decade, it is impossible to acknowledge the many things there are to be thankful for without reflecting on the loss and tragedy that have also played their part in shaping 2019.
There are many things beyond our control, but there is power in how we choose to our interact with each other. We can choose to lead with kindness and compassion. We can choose to listen. We can choose to speak up when we see discrimination and injustice. It begins with our friends, neighbours and loved ones.
We wish you much love heading into 2020!
While some of our programme makers are taking a well-deserved break over summer, many of our dedicated hosts and producers are sticking around to bring you the news, views and music you love. And you can catch up on the latest programmes - as well as the things you've missed throughout the year - right here at planetaudio.org.nz.
Thank you as always to our wonderful, loyal, interested, informed and diverse audiences for supporting access radio.
And a huge thank you to the amazing people that come through these doors and make Planet FM such a fantastic place to be. The passion we see in you, our volunteers, and the commitment to your communities is phenomenal, and it is a privilege and pleasure to work alongside you all.
Meri Kirihimete me te tau hou!
