Broadcast on Manawatu People's Radio 6 August, 2019. Kevin Burrows and Rod Watt, part 2 of 2. School in the 1950s. The cane and notches in belts. Pranks they would do: making bombs, smells from wattle seeds, rubber band guns. Making skeletons in science. Control-line aircraft at Palmerston North Boys High School. Slingshots, fire alarms on lampposts, triggered the alarm in a stone fight. Rod came from Scotland aged 7, impressions of New Zealand, types of fruit not available in Scotland.
