WinterABC2021 Day 3- My love,the radio

In 2019 my mother and l decided to buy a new radio because the load-shedding hours had become unbearable. We would go for more than ten hours without an electrical connection and l remember waking up in the dark and going to bed in the dark. The only time l could switch on the light was during the early hours of the morning on my way to the toilet. The radio became my best friend and l would set an alarm to charge it when we had an electrical connection.


l don’t mind listening to the radio for the whole day and sometimes l even forget to switch on the television. Some of the radio personalities have become my friends even though we have never met and when l don’t hear their voices l get worried. Their laughs, jokes and their authenticity always makes my day, l hope that l am a ray of sunshine in someone’s life too.

I always look forward to my Sundays. My favourite show on the radio is Soul Avenue which is hosted by Arnold Chirimika affectionately known as SoProfound. The Soul Avenue is a Soul and RnB show that is fun-packed. There is a segment called, Music from a different ear and the listeners are allowed to curate a thirty-minute long playlist. I was the second listener that curated this playlist and l was elated. It was a great feeling being called by the ZiFM station mobile number. The role reversal was fun since l am usually the one who calls to contribute.

Sometimes when people are stuck in traffic, doing their chores or in bed they can listen to the radio and it keeps them informed and entertained. The radio personalities also come up with interesting topics and the audience can share their experiences and their contributions on air. Most of the radio programs are live and whenever you make mistake the listeners will be listening.  I enjoy live performances as compared to the recorded ones because the performers know that the words “stop and cut”  do not exist. Maybe my love for theatre performances and live performances is the reason why l enjoy listening to the radio.

Do you enjoy listening to the radio? Who is your favourite radio personality?

  1. Radio is fun to be honest. I’m more into books, but I think I will try radio and see how it goes. The past Sunday morning, I think it was on ZiFM, and the host was Patience (I hope that’s the name) they had this session where people would call in to pass affectionate messages to their loved ones. It was pretty funny๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚…I know this because till this day I know a guy called Terrence was hit when he learnt that the girl he was greeting, and was supposedly his girlfriend didn’t know him. One girl passed a message and the boyfriend said no they’re friends…Patie asked if they were friends friends or she was his girlfriend, and that’s when he said she was his girl๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Only one pair of lovers admitted to knowing each other online…I did not see the session to an end, but yeah…I feel you when you say sometimes the radio can be your close friend.

    1. Thank you for reading, radio personalities force their way into our homes and they become our friends. Maybe we should host a radio show together lol๐Ÿ˜‰
