that would be a shame, as it was excellent.
i wonder what happened to have it discontinued?

I think it was a case of too few listeners leading to reduction in advertisers and escalating cost.

perhaps we could find out who presented it, and come up with a plan to get it re introduced.

Wonder wats keeping Gerhard awake :hmz:


Aqua, it was the brain child of Andre Walters after he left 50/50. I dont know what he is involved in today, but probably still some concervation and media related activities.


The problem in reviving it, is to convince advertisers that it would work again after the first attempt, and they are your bread and butter.

hi imax
any ideas as to how to contact them?
this was an educational programme, which was great to listen to while siting at water holes.

Unfortunately no. You could perhaps google his name, and take the discussion up with him as to how it could be revived.

Mods ... Is the previous topic still somewhere in archives about the Radio Station? There was a radio station but was closed down ... Reason for it slipped my mind now.
