Last week I hinted the excited new changes at YFM 99.2. It’s great to see that the youthful station is still sticking to its tried and tested line-up with just a few changes. Let’s hope these changes can excite their listeners and revive the airwaves.

“This year’s line-up will still feature popular favourites such as Mo Flava who will remain in the breakfast slot. “It boy” Warras with his “right here, right now” attitude, the ever sassy Bonang ‘B’ Matheba, hip-hop kings Siz’ n Scoop (Sizwe Dhlomo and Siyabonga Ngwekazi), drive-time’s Dineo Ranaka with her loveable co-host Buji, the Twinz and the legendary Oskido, all spread across weekends and weekdays slots.  Also look out for current affairs powerhouse Faith Mongope and the rest of the young blood crew: Pearl Modiadie, Linda Mbuso, MaAda and Motso Taje

“Fresh out the box and handpicked from campus radio are two new personalities that typify the YFM brand with their injection of youthful edginess and street smarts. ‘Wits Law graduate and  Durban local Zama Dube, moved to Joburg to study and has hosted her own show on Voice of Wits Radio and also did a stint on Yeabo Radio. She will take over the 10h00am-12pm weekday slot. YFM also welcomes Bryce ‘DJ Ankle Tap’ Clarke, a Communications graduate, who has hosted at UJFM’s for the past 3 years. He takes on the 12h00 – 03h00 am slot”.

“Sadly this year YFM bids farewell to a long standing family member and a true legend, our very own Oskido. Having paved the way for hundreds of young musicians and DJs over the years, he is not only one of the biggest musical icons in the country, but he is also recognized internationally as a House music Guru. Known everywhere, from Miami to Ibiza, Dublin to Paris, veteran super DJ Oscar Mdlongwa leaves the station after 14 amazing years. The YFM family wishes him the best of luck with all future endeavors”.                                                                                                                                 

Look out for an exclusive interview I did with newbie Zama Dube in the Next post.
