Two friends have been reconnected after nearly 50 years, because they were both listening to the Marcus Lush Nights show.

Marcus mentioned the passing of Millie Small, and heard from a few callers who had attended concerts of hers in New Zealand in the 1960s.

One caller, Don, said he went to her show in Greymouth with an older friend of his, Parris Heath, and went backstage after the show as Parris interviewed Millie for the local newspaper.

A couple of hours later, after thinking he had heard himself be mentioned on the radio, Parris rang Marcus to confirm the story.
