Remembering Jabu (and Soweto)
Yesterday's programme was an oddity. Good subject, a good response , and good guests, but it didn't gel on air. There were some technical difficulties (bad phone lines and a long "delay" on a couple of the lines out of Uganda and Nigeria) but nothing insurmountable but for whatever reason we didn't sell the subject well enough on air and as Liliane, a much respected boss here, put it- "it didn't grip me". So i'm sorry, i hope we'll do better today.
Today's Sowetan newspaper has previewed our special programme today, and i sincerely hope you've read Ros's excellent blog posting. which doesn't need anything added from me
We will have a satellite in the car park at Jozi FM for people to come down and make their comments and we're waiting to hear from Jozi as to who will be the presenter at their end.
Only this morning Ros found a clip of one of the shows we did with Jabu in which he talks about his optimism for the future of Soweto. later we'll find out if his sentiments are shared.
