THE TAXI RADIO GANG:
Soli Philander – broadcaster, actor, comedian, and writer – presumably you’ve heard of me – ‘Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader’, ‘Liriekeraai’, ‘Let’s Fix It’ and some other TV excursions (some people still remember me from Timothy Traddle on Kideo!). On Radio I’ve worked for Metro, SAFM, Punt Geselsradio, RSG, Capetalk (twice – and twice they’ve shafted me) and Heart. I’ve written columns for The Argus, Beeld, Kaap-Rapport, Foschini Club Magazine and such. I’ve done (besides acting in shows like District Six The Musical, Buckingham Palace D6, a couple of PD Uys productions and quite a few Shakespeares) my own shows like Take Two, Woeskroes, Hotnotsgot and lots and lots of stand-up comedy.
The iReverend Colin Jones – ex-dean of St. George’s Cathedral, struggle activist, ex-CEO of Spier Wine Estates, board member of the Tallberg Foundation in Sweden, violinist, writer and still sometime preacher
Grant Jansen, ex-FMR, ex-KFM, ex-Capetalk, broadcaster, producer, marketing graduate, DJ
And The Ghaadtjie Lerato Matona – humanities graduate from Kanana near Orkney near Klerksdorp
A Forum for Capetonians to engage with each other and the world. Have some fun like only Capetonians can, make some gat like only Capetonians can, and in the way that Capetonians do, wallow in what makes us unique, and tune the rest of the world… to our wavelength.
