My days, my life, my Radio Bantu
This book by this author marks a great step forward in rediscovering South Africa's path to the present, with clear guidelines to a democratic future by means of free media! The story of Motsweding FM is engagingly and comprehensively told, amply illustrated and placing the station in its political, musical, sorting and other contexts.
A first in many respects, the appearance of Ben Maitsapo's history of a vibrant radio station, originally Radio Tswana, is an exciting event. His chosen title My days, my life, my Radio Bantu indicates both his personal involvement and the roots of the station. It was and was meant to remain Radio Bantu. But among other incarnations, it popped up as Radio Bop! And bopping it still is. Music and all that jazz, sports, a life and a lifestyle of its own, with nostalgia and with renewed courage for the future.
There is a great need for many contemporary histories celebrating the new, non-racial enlightened South Africa.
