What do you think of the new Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus WatchiWatch? I must say I’m blown away and can’t wait to up grade. I mean I’ve still got an iPhone 4, which has given me excellent service and my up grade has been due for a number of years now. As an Apple aficionado and with Christmas and my birthday is coming, it may happen that I’ll have to treat myself unless some kind friend decides to be really nice and make me a gift of the iPhone 6 Plus, the phone will do for now, I’ll get the watch myself later on:) Oh well continuing to dream, neh.:(

It’s another one of those hectic days where there is so much to do and time in no friend of mine today, got a whole bunch of music to get on the AJR system, loads of emails to reply to so the auto presenter will be doing duty again today. Hey would you like to present a show on All Jazz Radio, if you’re interested please email us and tell us about yourself and your musical likes, in fact add an list of twenty artists you’d include in a show. Also please tell us a little about yourself, where you live and any other relevant info you may deem of interest. We look forward to hearing from you.

These bands also contributed uniquely to the cultural landscape in our country.” Read the full story at

IT HAS been a vintage year for South African releases. The appellation “album of the year” becomes superfluous when nobody this year has yet sent me a bad album. It has also seen the revival of long-dormant jazz projects. We heard McCoy Mrubata’s Brasskap Project again after six years, and now Marcus Wyatt and Siya Makuzeni’s Language 12 returns after eight years.Read the full column at
