ABOUT JOHN WATSON

John started his technical career at the age of 16 when he trained as a cinema projectionist at Auckland's St James Theatre. Through that period and the following 18 years in the industry he learned about electronics and sound engineering. He also had a part-time business DJing at various functions such as weddings, celebrations and dance parties. In 2013 he established Sleep Radio, a station that plays sleeping music to help insomniacs get to sleep. Then in 2021 he also established Radio Te Aroha, a small community FM station in Te Aroha, New Zealand where New Music Aotearoa is recorded. In 2023, John saw a huge anomaly in that new, New Zealand artists got very little, if any, airplay on mainstream radio stations - hence the birth of New Music Aotearoa.

SOVEREIGNTY STATEMENT AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTT

We acknowledge that we reside on the traditional country of the indigenous Māori peoples whose elders and forebears have been and remain custodians of the lands, waters, and seas of Aotearoa New Zealand. We pay respect to elders past and present and future leaders. We acknowledge ngā iwi Māori as the Tangata Whenua of Aotearoa. More information on our acknowledgement can be found here. The producers of New Music Aotearoa state that some of the music we play will be sung in Te Reo Māori. We make no apology for this and suggest that if songs in Te Reo Māori offend you, you shouldn't listen to this show.

 

NZ MUSIC ARTISTS - KEEN ON SUBMITTING YOUR MUSIC FOR THE SHOW?

Most of the music we feature on the show comes to us via the NZ On-Air website but we're always keen to have you send tracks to us directly, as long as they're in mp3 format. The best and easiest way to do this is using a free uploader website like WeTransfer and email files or folders to us at newmusicaotearoa@watsons.co.nz
