Andrew Dickens' Sunday Café
9AM - 12PMSun
Andrew Dickens’ Sunday Café is a show that will take you out and about amongst the lives of busy New Zealanders. Full of inspiration, ideas and fun it’s a fresh way to start Sunday.
The Sunday papers editors battle it out in 'The Press Conference'. The Daily Mail’s Dan Wooton is across entertainment news. As well as feature interviews, there’s books with Joan Mackenzie from Whitcoulls, food with Michael Van De Elzen, gardening with Jacque Tucker, travel with Megan Singleton, financial advice with Hannah McQueen of enableMe, and gadgets and tech with Peter Griffin. Andrew is also joined by two guests each week on The Panel. Andrew Dickens’ Sunday Café is packed full of information, entertainment and opinion.
It’s been a long road in broadcasting before Andrew Dickens came to Newstalk ZB. Starting at Radio B as Station Manager in the 80s, Andrew has been around the world on radio. Not only has he been on air in Hamilton, Wanganui, Greymouth and Wellington but he’s also been a breakfast host in London and even Monaco. Then, there was 13 years as breakfast host on Auckland’s Classic Hits.
He’s a qualified journalist, a father of 2 boys (who are eating him out of house and home) and the owner of an unruly Labradoodle.
