S04E10 – Common Censorship Show

tmw-s04e10-graphic

The recent row over the disgraceful culture of censorship gripping the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) got Leon and Brett thinking about how so very little has changed at the corporation since the dark days of apartheid.

But as always, South Africans aren’t ready to take this kak lying down and the fight has been taken to the very car park of the institution. Here are some tunes banned in the the past to keep you toyi-toying in the present…. right up to Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s door.

S04E08 – The 90% Show

s04e08-graphicpic
