AES Auckland

For nine months during 1944, the NZ Broadcasting Service light music station 1ZM was handed over to the Armed Forces Radio Service. Here, a live studio performance is underway. Southernmost outlet of the Mosquito Network, 1ZM served almost half a million American military personnel who passed through New Zealand en route to the Pacific.
