Ukulele Is The New Black

Dec 15, 2019

If you listened to the episode earlier this year where I talked to Dave Parker of The Nukes, you may have been wondering about this guy called Snapper we kept talking about.  Well wonder no more, because here he is!  I had another brief visit to Auckland a few months ago and jumped at the opportunity to chat to him.  It wasn’t ideal timing – there was a major building fire in the city which caused traffic chaos and terrible air quality, but Snapper battled through the smoke and traffic to have a chat to me at my hotel.  Thanks Snapper – I think it was worth it!
