Read Me A Poem with Tim Finn

Weekend Variety Wireless 26/11/2018

Tim Finn needs no introduction in New Zealand.

The founder, songwriter, musician and lyricist for New Zealand’s best-loved band Split Enz alongside a myriad of great solo work.

On the Weekend Variety Wireless this week, he reads us a poem he loves, and tells us why.

He also reveals everything from the piano rivalry between himself and his son, to his performance on Time for a Change.

Tim is currently working on a secret project with fellow Split Enz legend Eddie Reyner.

He discusses his own work, focussing on lyrical meaning and even plays a few tunes, such as Straw to Gold.

Tim additionally shares the poem The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot.
