Our show airs every Saturday from 9-10am and is called on the couch or #OTC with Tapfuma Makina and Flapper

New Time on Saturday for On the couch on HEART 104.9fm 9- 10am

Take Tapfuma Makina and Heart 104.9FM on a Saturday morning. Add Martin Myers and someone known only as Flapper and you have On The Couch, # OTC a witty and crazy sports-themed show. It is 60 minutes of laughs, non-facts and facts and food for thought.

Initiated by Myers and then Saturday on-air DJ the late Az Abrahams , Heart 104.9 soon realised that there was such a thing as power in numbers, and Flapper joined the team.

Today the passionate and sports mad trio — an accountant, a music industry veteran and a music DJ — make for fun radio. The show ran from 8-9am for many years and now we have moved one hour latter .

From just after 9am through to 10am the phone lines light up as Heart listeners get to tackle the fanatical Flapper, referee Tapfuma and the ever-controversial Martin on everything from try-lines to balls.

Tapfuma is soccer mad , Myers follows suit with his unashamed love of the All Blacks, whilst Flapper can’t be challenged on his cricket and golf knowledge.

Everything about On The Couch is entirely off the cuff and therein lies its spontaneity and in turn its success.

With Tapfuma keeping the lines open throughout the show and a little bit of music to dilute the talk, the subject matter is relevant to the sports issues of the day — a mixture of good clean fun and addressing controversial issues.

With international sport well covered, these three wise men are hungry to expose and celebrate the best of what the country has to offer in up-and-coming talent and teams, no matter what the sport or discipline.

The trio don?t play by the rules, only because they spend more time on the bench than on the field, making On The Couch everything but formatted — instead it’s fun, entertaining and downright silly at times.

On Sat on Heart 104.9fm from 8-9am we discuss the topic “Professionalism in schoolboy r ugby”
