Thanks Bruce, I'll give both of them a try. 630-Cook Islands doesn't sign off at local midnight any more; it abruptly switches to a Newstalk ZB feed at 2358 local time (0958 UTC). It apparently runs the Newstalk ZB programming all night long, then resumes its local programming around 0600 local time (1600 UTC). Unfortunately the Internet is so slow on this island (and they nail you so many $$ to use it) that I can't post an MP3 of it currently.
