South Africa’s legends of radio

Do you remember South Africa’s radio voices of yesteryear?

Happy Heritage Day to all South Africans. This day should not end before honouring all heroes and heroines of the airwaves, those gone, those still with us and the missing in action, where are they?

Eddie Zondi’s last words

One name that comes to mind among those MIA, is Quincy ‘Jones’ Kekana. Where is he?

Quincy, one of the founding presenters of radio Metro hails from the Vaal Triangle in Evaton. Wouldn’t it be lovely to hear him on one of the national radio stations today?

“If it’s good, it’s Grant.”

Grant Shakoane

These are the legends of radio, the pioneers of the airwaves. These men and women were on our radios when radio was still radio, waar was jy? Have we honoured them enough? Have we thanked them enough?

May those who are gone continue to rest in peace and may we celebrate those who are with us while they’re still alive?

Happy Heritage Day

The late, Bob Mabena
