Thats my prayer before I go on airThere is always debate that the level of radio quality has regressed over the years,what is your comment on this debate?
I genuinely feel it has, with the advent of social media we are constantly and consistently chasing trends, hype, and followers.
Few do it for the love and this to a certain extent has watered down the quality delivered.Have you ever blundered on Live radio?
Yoooh, I got into it with a listener on air over a comment he made, if I recall it was about the SONA particulary at the end of i I clicked my tongue( go kgwa lexna) and called him an idiot.
It was one of those moments I regret.
