S2E10 - Dave Parker

I had a short trip to Auckland recently, and took the opportunity to chat to ukulele player and songwriter Dave Parker.  Dave is one third of New Zealand ukulele band The Nukes, who have been playing around New Zealand, Australia and other places for around 10 years.  I saw the Nukes play last year and was blown away by how good they were – so I was really excited by the opportunity to talk to Dave, and was not disappointed.  Enjoy!
