Fonofaufautua Leitio is produced by an enthusiastic team of broadcasters who have been presenting their weekly show focussing on mental and physical health specifically for the Samoan community for one year now. Plains FM are very proud of this milestone achievement and it’s great to see the show is only going to keep developing in the New Year with more beautiful Samoan music and useful content and information.

If you haven’t managed to catch the show and are interested in finding out more about issues which are generally not covered in relation to the Samoan community (such as suicide, disabilities, mental health and pregnancy) you can listen in to Fonofaufautua Leitio on Plains FM from 1pm every Tuesday.

So tune in for support and information to help you live a full and healthy life.

For the first time in Plains FM's history a Vietnamese cultural programme is on air. Vietnam Men Yeu broadcasts once a month for 25 minutes from 8:30pm on the third Thursday of each month.

The team includes Minh Lengoc, Tien Cao, Do Nguyen, Bao Han, Nuong Wright and Tammy Nguyen

The objective of the program is to convey information of interest to Vietnamese speakers in Canterbury. It provides a forum for the exchange of views, life experiences and beliefs. It also serves as a notice board for the Vietnamese community; and of course you will hear lots of music to take you down memory lane and back to homeland Vietnam!

The program includes interviews with various members of the Vietnamese community; recipes of authentic Vietnamese dishes, news items of interest and music performed by talented members of the community.

So we'd love you to tune in and connect with this small but active community each month on air or online.
