We are into the last year of the decade, so Leigh-Ann makes you feel old by showcasing the big songs from the year 2000. The team discusses the Bohemian Rhapsody movie and the life of Freddie Mercury. The Clintons docu-series, R Kelly and what is happening with him right now. Then Jane comes into studio (very early) to talk about her holidays and the big drinking sessions she had.
The team is back for an energetic start to the year! The big news straight up is around Ben’s engagement to Daniela, and how that all happened. Having to choose a few items from a list of life essentials… then into the latest news and sport stories, plus Anthea’s opening finance report of 2019.
Leigh-Ann’s sleep woes continue, unfortunately, this time with Nathan Ro joining the team in studio to discuss them. The trio continue to look at some more of the biggest stories of the year, their take on Christmas songs and review the most viewed videos of 2018 on YouTube.
The Christmas spirit is in full swing with Leigh-Ann and Siya taking over the reigns of the show. They look over some of the most popular stories of the year and discuss some of their holidays and trends too.
“We all get to choose who we want to become” – motivational speaker and entrepreneur Robin Banks shares this and so many other pearls of wisdom with Gareth to shape your mind as you end 2018, and gear up for the new year. He speaks about the power of your thoughts, shaping your mindset, the importance of a positive outlook, and so much more.
The team briefly takes a look at the biggest political stories of 2018 with Katharine Child, in the midst of many Christmas carols (come on, it’s the most wonderful time of the year, so they’re allowed to). Then, Liam Wilson – a listener from Dubai – shares some of his experiences of living in the UAE and sticks around for some team talk too.
Gareth and Siya have some Christmas spirit to share, while on the other side of the scale trying to understand why so many are still getting upset over things they really shouldn’t be. Holiday plans are in full swing just before a look at the ‘Five Things You Need To Know’. Need something to perk your mood up? Take a listen to ‘Said By Siya’ too.
Though it is the most wonderful time of the year, it is also one of the most dangerous. Gareth chats to Bianca Burger from Headway Gauteng about the organisation and staying safe over the festive season. The big things South Africans are spending money on over the festive season, Bles Bridges and his history of throwing the D around, and Gareth chats to Dene Botha from Pride Factory. Really rich Asians, movies for the holidays, and a very pornographic Christmas.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, as Gareth retells his Christmas shopping experience and the wonderful cheap crap he bought. Siya runs his gift strategy by the team, and Ben has a road trip to look forward to. The latest in the news, Ben wrapping up the sport, and Siya’s positivity feature for the day.
Hollywood A-lister Taraji P Henson has made waves in roles in ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, ‘Hidden Figures’ and most popularly as Cookie Lyon in ‘Empire’. Speaking about this to Gareth while on tour in South Africa, she also discusses her many life passions: changing lives.
