Cambridge New Zealand – coming up – Chris Thompson

Chris says

Well, it starts at 8pm and goes till late & I’ll be playing a mixture of my own songs as well as some Folk/Blues and Country standards – it’ll be about 60% original songs. There’s no cover charge as far as I am aware. All welcome.

That would be at Flying Nunn (the once infamous Kelly Browne’s Bar), 3 Empire Street, Cambridge this Friday, the 30th of July 2010.

Cambridge Autumn Festival 2010 – Nairobi Trio

The Nairobi Trio perform before an enthusiastic audience at St Andrews Parish Hall, Cambridge, New Zealand this evening, Thursday, the 29th of April 2010. Masterful and thoroughly entertaining. Very deliberately shot from a static POV (Canon G10) to soak up the atmosphere and the music of course. BTW the odd flashes of light in the windows left and right is traffic passing by on SH1, Hamilton Road – just beyond the hall. Very lo-fi but you get the picture. [06:38]

YouTube – My Resistance Is Low – Jane Russell, Hoagy Carmichael

Not sure that it was this particular version – and obviously from a US database. Chosen by the Facebook Date Of Birth No1 song app. If you can figure out where I was born – the actual address – from the geolocation embed here – and can tell me what device / app. you used to read it – (sorry, I had better restrict this to a Waikato sitting / location) – you win a portrait sitting ( individual / family / portfolio / business etc.). First in wins.

Heavenly Pop Hits – The Flying Nun Story

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Since NZ On Screen first went live we’ve had requests from people wanting to embed the videos we have on site. It’s not quite as simple as just making it available as an option, because everything we put online has to be cleared with copyright holders first. Our initial licence agreements were for putting material on NZ On Screen only. However now we have developed a gorgeous embed player, which includes the ability to see the different clips for each title, as well as the synopsis and some of the credits. When the copyright holder says yes, the “embed this” option will appear under the player. There are a few titles now that are ready to embed – more will be added as we revise existing agreements or make new ones.
