Get your motor running, yr motorcycling Worship's here with some news about fixing up Auckland's beaches and phasing out the plastic bag. Listen in as we talk timeframes, rates dollars and, Mike's recurring favourite, helicopters.

With kauri dieback, myrtle rust, rates increases and roadworks grumbling to contend with, His Worship Your Mayor doesn't seem to shrink from the hard questions. Front footing a comprehensive rundown of Auckland's year end issues, Mayor Goff wants Auckland (that's you, probably) to know: he's got this.

Helicopters: the drug of the nation. [Really? - Ed.] Not only does Mayor Phil fast-track Mikey's concerns directly to the police commissioners, he also implies that our dear Breakfast Host is growing weed.

Plenty to talk about with a mayor who'd like us to 'give nothing to racism' _or_ the Team New Zealand America's Cup hosting fee. And speaking of goings on in Auckland's waters... Mayor Goff once campaigned on opposition to 'dolphin' extensions into the downtown harbour, but has now kowtowed to that particular apparent cruise ship need. How come?

The mayor's a busy man, Auckland. ...But never too busy for the bFM listenership. Not shying away from the hard questions, Mike asks His Worship about travel expenditure, port sludge and good ol' Auckland rates.

Mike reckons he may have given the Mayor a bit of a hard time this week. Did he? You be the judge.

Showing some pretty good humour with regards to certain (ahem) kiss-off phrases his name sounds similar to, His Worship the Mayor of Auckland is also getting pretty good at pre-empting our lines of questioning. Hmm. This week: teachers' inability to afford Auckland living; Auckland Transport recovering from being a bit of a dingus; and the seemingly constant fragility of arts funding.

Phil Goff discusses the challenges of managing Auckland's growth. In particular the difficulty finding and retaining teachers for growing school roles. Mikey also tries to coax Phils thoughts on Winston Peters position... in effectively getting to decide the next government..
