The Country - Happy edition

Today The Country encourages listeners to text in songs that make them happy. Nice!

On with the show:

Lisa Murray:

Our Met Service forecaster says some seriously wet weather is hitting the upper North Island but little will get to the parched southern South Island regions.

Don Carson:

Bex Legat:

We salute the members (no pun intended) of the West Melton Young Farmers Club who are getting their kit off to raise awareness and money for mental health (following the lead of their Aussie counterparts).

Barry Soper:

Our political correspondent ponders Labour's efforts at Waitangi, National's leadership and who will be the new Green Party co-leader?

Grant Nisbett:
