Tautoko FM’s 21st birthday was on the 28 November 2009.
People on the ground in Mangamuka took part in the celebrations personally.
It all started at 7am with a blessing of the newly painted station, them manuhiri moved down to the Ngapuhi Marae for the powhiri and a breakfast hakari. At 10am stalls were opened and the concert began.

And hear it all in the convenience of your whare.
Wherever that may be.
Tautoko is 21 once. And they celebrated 21 years of Tautoko Radio.
And look forward to the next 21 years.
And just because you can’t be there in person, doesn’t mean the celebration can’t be heard in your house.
Streaming through your computer speakers.
Here’s what happened on the ground.
‘Tautoko’ .. so named by the Kuia and Kaumatua.
To support Maori and Maori kaupapa in their endeavours to achieve their goals.
Te Reo Takiwa o Tautoko was a collective effort of Whanau / Hapu and Iwi vision, to erect a Broadcasting Facility as a means of communication to the outer boundaries of it’s then and now site .. Mangamuka.
