As much as I love this top-of-the-hour cut, no CHR should be running a 30-year-old jingle package. Ever.

(It comes from JAM’s “Hitradio” package, which was produced for KHTR/St Louis in 1983)

First performance in Cape Town

My first Cape Town performance in 18 months, and I’m thrilled to be joining the InZync team again for their InZync Mashup and the Stellenbosch Woordfees. It’s a night of poetry and improvised music with the incredible musician and composer Kyle Shepherd. I’ll be reading alongside Koleka Putuma, Adrian Van Wyk and Pieter Odendaal. 

Date: Sunday March 6
Time: 5pm
Venue: Stellies Live, Stellenbosch
Tickets: R40 (R20 for students) pre-booked | R50 (R30 students) on the door


Frank lay in bed with his lover at his side, but he couldn’t sleep. His mind was wandering to other places. Like where Abigail was, and why Ryan was so intent on interrogating Alex, and whether the WYK tests were going to succeed. 

He sat up in the bed and ran his hands through his hair. If he couldn’t sleep, he might as well do something. So he stood up and grabbed a book, then moved over to a chair with a small lamp next to it, and started reading.
