Ligwalagwala FM rings some changes in line-up

Posted by radio On May - 9 - 2013

The people of Mpumalanga during the month of May will tune on to Ligwalagwala FM to hear unlikely voices during the two drive time shows, Kusile Mzansi and Asambe Drive Show. As part of celebrating 31 years of broadcasting excellence the station will change the morning and afternoon slots line up by swapping the DJs of these shows. Shabba Mavuso will now be the voice to wake the listeners up in the morning during Kusile Mzansi and Madumane Simelane will be the driver of Asambe Drive Show. This change will bring back those olden days and memories when Shabba Mavuso used to host the morning slot before taking over the afternoon slot.

 

Shabba Mavuso commenced his radio career in 1997 at BCR FM and joined Ligwalagwala FM in 2003 where he hosted the breakfast show. It was not difficult for him to make a name for himself when he introduced features that were very popular to the station listeners. He was moved to the afternoon drive show 3 years later to replace another radio veteran Shukuma Lukhele who currently hosts the sports show at the station. For the month of May Shabba will again host the breakfast show, “I am aware of what it means to host the breakfast show, I have been listening to different morning shows recently and noticed how important it is to be relevant with current issues. I will have to adjust my sleeping patterns though because I am so used to waking up and read in the middle of the night,” said Shabba Mavuso, Ligwalagwala FM

 

The popular, humorous and cocky Madumane Simelane joined Ligwalagwala FM in 2004 where he hosted the Saturday and Sunday shows respectively. Due to his popularity amongst the listeners in 2006 he was allocated the breakfast show which he currently hosts. Asked about how he feels about the show swap for the month of May, he said, “There’s no better way to express the versatility of the current crop of presenters and making history as the station than to feel free and trust that our current players can play any position in this field called radio.”

 

“Radio programming has evolved over the years and as such radio DJs have the challenge to evolve with it. They need to prepare themselves to take on any programming time slot in order to build their careers in the radio industry. The Bewukuphi Campaign that the station activated for the Birthday Celebration will not only trigger memories amongst our listeners but will also showcase the versatility amongst the station drive time DJs,” said Rio Mabunda, Ligwalagwala FM Station Manager.
