    Some 'Palmerston North City Council' staff are being disruptive and destructive. In July, PNCC signs a lease with a new non-existing tenant, upsetting more than half a dozen businesses who have no other option offered but to move. Some existing sub-tenants were not given the option to lease from PNCC, because they were considered too small, even though these existing tenants appeared quite happy with the per square metre charges that were being proposed by PNCC. This review by PNCC creates huge cost and disrupts support and technical services from SOUND NOETZ - provided for independent media VISION 100. PNCC staff involved demonstrate their ability to 'buck pass' and not take ownership of a problem that they directly or individually created, due to not listening and not thinking about the consequences of their actions. Some of the [PNCC] staff involved work part-time, but still get leave and take it at the most inconvenient of times and while away they hand our case to another who cannot do anything until the first person is back from leave and when they're back, the second person then takes leave, delaying the instructions of the first person and causing major communication and finalisation delays, etc, etc.

    Government bloat! Who will finally blow the lid on this Government's public sector indulgence and many who could now be called Self Servants - servants lacking empathy from a lack of private sector experience and/or a lack of training about what the private sector does.

    They break what wasn't broke! A review of PNCC's processes and staff abilities and action would probably be money better spent than breaking business. They [PNCC] say that they want us to stay, however their actions are destroying value and commitment. Their actions speak louder than words!

    For the information of readers: Grant Seton, founder of SOUND NOETZ (1990) and VISION 100 (1998), first moved to Palmerston North city in 1975, and has lived the city's ups and downs; Heather Tanguay is the Mayor for Palmerston North; Paul Wylie is the Chief Executive for the Palmerston North City Council.

    NEW ZEALAND MUSIC RADIO MILESTONE

    New Zealand music and info station - VISION 100 FM Palmerston North & Vision100.com IM Radio - hit a milestone today, with its 2,500th broadcast day and scheduled songs now totalling 900,000 played.

    Founder Grant Seton said "we'll do a little ra ra today and enjoy some soup and toast".

    The station initially started on the Net on 17 August 1999, commencing from good technology changes and lower broadcast and compliance costs, compared to current costs and compliance for FM spectrum.

    Listener numbers is now bang on 50% from within New Zealand, a figure that has risen steadily over the years, likely due to increased awareness, popularity, and increasing broadband uptake in New Zealand.

    The top 10 countries where listeners are tuning in, via the Net, from: New Zealand, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, China, Japan, France, and Netherlands. 'Other' countries make up 13% of listeners.

    VISION 100 started taking advantage of local FM on 100.0 (from licence holder SOUND NOETZ) starting in 2003. An additional central support office within Palmy's CBD opened in 2005.

    Further development of its local FM is still needed. "Development to increase its free to air coverage locally will depend on Government cooperation and business demand," stated Mr Seton.

    The station's Head Office is still in Palmerston North. The station has a small team, but only a quarter of staff now live within Palmerston North city and Manawatu district.

    VISION 100 is a 100% NZ owned & operated media company - established 1998 in Palmerston North city, Manawatu district, New Zealand.

    Should it be renamed "NZ Music Political Month"?

    1 May 2006

    From: Hon Steve Maharey

    Government helps Kiwi FM stay on the airwaves.

    The government will grant Kiwi FM access to new FM frequencies, under an agreement that will help the 100 percent Kiwi music station stay on the airwaves, Broadcasting Minister Steve Maharey announced today.

    "The government is committed to working with radio broadcasters to grow New Zealand music," Steve Maharey said.

    "We support the concept of a station that plays 100 percent Kiwi music, and we're keen that it has the opportunity to develop and expand the range of Kiwi music it plays.

    Steve Maharey said the station had been granted the use of three FM frequencies for an initial period of one year, during which time it would work towards becoming a not-for-profit organisation.

    "Kiwi FM will take up the new frequencies from July. They will be Auckland 102.2FM, Wellington 102.1FM and Christchurch 102.5FM. As part of the agreement to use the frequencies, the station's brief will be to significantly expand its content to include a greater range of New Zealand Music.

    "At least eight new specialist shows, funded by NZ On Air, will be included on the new format. These include shows for Independent, Alternative and New, specific genres, unsigned artists, label features and more."

    Kiwi FM was launched by CanWest MediaWorks in February 2005 and is currently the only radio station that currently plays 100 percent Kiwi music.

    Steve Maharey said airplay of New Zealand music had doubled since March 2002 when the government and the Radio Broadcasters Association launched a Code of Practice for New Zealand music content. Kiwi FM was one of the ways the industry could build on that success.

    CanWest CEO Brent Impey welcomed the announcement: "CanWest has long been a strong supporter of Kiwi Music. Kiwi FM was launched a year ago to enhance this support. This agreement puts Kiwi in a positive position for the future."

    Award-winning author and radio broadcaster, Karyn Hay is new General Manager of Kiwi FM. The announcement comes at the start of NZ Music month, launched yesterday by Associate Arts Culture and Heritage Minister, Judith Tizard.
