Getting Started In Radio

Hi I am currently a marketing manager wishing to get into the Radio industry part-time (evenings/weekends etc.) I'm electing to do a 1 week course on the technical side, and then perhaps volunteering at a community station. Does anyone have any advice or contacts in this regard? Any correspondence appreciated :) 26 Feb 2007

Freeing the air waves

The Electronic Communications Act came into being this year. It is very difficult for me to understand the logic behind a clause in the ACT which give new applicants the RIGHT to go on air should they not get any response from the Authority within 30 days. 24 Nov 2006

More Mike Wills

What I'd like to know, two months down the line, is how many people still listen to the Cape Talk breakfast show after Mike's departure. Did everybody give up and resign themselves to being dumbed down or do you, like me, now do the SAFM/Cape Talk shuffle? 24 Nov 2006

Local radio stations in trouble?

On SAFM last Sunday, Jeremy Maggs was discussing with two gentlemen from the SABC a new concept by the state broadcaster. What was said (in a nutshell) is that SABC will be using a new method where broadcasting splits at a certain time. Confused? Please bear with me. 13 Apr 2005

Why can't Yfm go national?

Sometime last year when I was in Jozi, I listened to Yfm for the very first time and liked it but now that I'm back home there's no more Yfm. WHY? 19 Nov 2004

Constantly fed bad news

I think that one of the reasons that South Africans are so negative is that we're fed bad news every half an hour on the radio. 16 Nov 2004

What a pleasure to wake up to Alex on 94.7 now that the Rude Awakening team is on leave!

Alex Jay's witty commentary, music knowledge, all-round pleasant personality and sexy voice make for a welcome change to the vulgar, offensive and inane twaddle that emanates from Jeremy and his laughing hyaena team. 21 Jul 2004

IEC not in touch with SA roots

Is local not lekker for IEC after ten years of democracy? There is an IEC re-registor advert running on radio which encourages people to vote. The peculiar thing is the voice is that of American R&B singer. 16 Jan 2004

M-Net and Supersport advertising

Is it only me who is irritated by the tedious onslaught of own-channel, self promotional advertising that envelops just about any sporting event broadcast on these channels. 12 Mar 2003
