From the Vault – Before They Were Famous: Paul Holmes

  • Wednesday 1 Nov

G For over 15 years, Paul Holmes brought the issues of the day into our living rooms, fronting the weeknight current affairs show Holmes. But prior to his TV news career, Paul had done an equally long stint in radio, getting his start in Christchurch before moving to Wellington station 2ZB, and eventually becoming Newstalk ZB's nationwide breakfast host. In this 1975 item, music show Grunt Machine catches up with the young afro-wearing DJ in Wellington. While on-air he happily gives away an LP to Carol of Naenae, off-air he has some disparaging words to say about the Top 20 music chart.
