The Holiday Special

Episode 32

Sosaties roasting on an open fire, beach sand getting in your clothes… we do the holidays South African-style with two hours of festive music by South African artists spreading seasonal cheer and snappy tunes around the globe (particularly if you’re freezing your gramadoelas off in the snow)!
