S04E08 – The 90% Show

s04e08-graphicpic

In this episode, Leon and Brett talk about what constitutes a strong enough “South African identity” for a musician or band to be considered “local” for the purposes of the SABC’s new – and welcome – 90% quota on local music. Some say it is unrealistic, but let’s be honest, American and Britain already play high percentages of home-grown music and have the strongest music industries in the world. Still, there is come controversy about the wisdom of the move and of course what constitutes “local music” so we’d love to hear your views, but first, enjoy the show featuring some of the best South African music around.
