Now – as you probably know, as well as the usual platforms (this site, soundcloud, iTunes/Apple) you can now get to Sweetman Podcast on Spotify – follow it there and have it saved in your Spotify library.
Here’s a conversation with Marnie Karmelita – she’s the head of programming at the NZ Festival and Wellington Jazz Festival – regular listeners will remember that a couple of years ago I talked with the then-boss-of-things Shelagh Magadza. Shelagh and Marnie worked together in both Perth and Wellington – so it seemed natureal to hear from Marnie now in the top role.
It was my first time meeting her – so we talked through some of her background in arts administration and event management before previewing this year’s jazz festival. It was pleasure to meet Marnie and hear some of her story and I think we did a good job of giving the upcoming Wellington Jazz Festival (June 5-9, 2019) a good, hard plug. Some terrific headliners and worthy venues and events await. I really enjoyed this wee chinwag.
I hope you enjoy it too.
