If you’re a South African musician, producer, label manager or promotor, or a music journalist, or documentary film maker, or in some way connected to the South African music scene and you find yourself passing through London in the UK, or Los Angeles or San Diego in the USA, we’d be delighted to have you as a guest on our show.
