Easy Listening

Call it the stalker sentamentalist in me, but I'm always imagining what my friends might be doing at any given moment. If they're smiling and happy, or shouting profanities at taxis... if they're listening to the radio, and if so, what radio station they're listening to. Sometimes I even go so far as to google radio stations in their area, and log on for a quick listen. And just maybe, if a few fairies somehwere collide, they might be listening to the exact same thing at that very moment and shaking their booties too. I know. I'm silly like that. Anyhoo, I thought I'd share my fave listens with you from our local okals. These radio stations are top notch. And you get to hear the south african accent too... because you just have to read my blog with a South African accent:-

East Coast Radio (what I listen to all day almost every day. If I can get a good signal.) is the fave radio station of most people living in KwaZulu Natal. Lots of local news, funnies, good music, etc.

Algoa FM (where most of my cousins and school friends stay - the Eastern Cape. This is a really groovy radio station - and you'll notice that the accent down there is quite different to the accent up here.)

5FM is the radio station that spans all of South Africa. By far the biggest radio station with the biggest listening circle. But I don't listen to it because they like to blaspheme. And therefore I boycott them. Because if there's one thing I can't tolerate it's people taking God's name in vain. It makes the hairs on the back of my teeth stand up.

And then there is a station that I listen to, for news of my other fave country on the planet...

Hamburg Radio in Germany.

But I'm getting slightly bored with the humdrum now. What radio stations do you listen to? Pretty please send me some links. Or if you're comment-challenged, just say howdy and I like to listen to *fandaldangal*. I'll google them later and then have a listen. For those of you who are reaaaaalllly special, here are some instructions on HOW TO COMMENT. Part Two. Because you didn't catch the hint the first time round.

Because really, what it comes down to is that I really need something to keep my mind off of Heath Ledger. *Sob!* And that's all I have to say about that.
