Happy #WorldRadioDay. I’m celebrating 15 years on radio this year 😁. It’s been quite a journey. Full of ups and some major downs but all worth it...— Mpho Letsholonyane (@M_Letsholonyane) February 13, 2019
This #WorldRadioDay I'm grateful for the power of radio to promote dialogue, tolerance, peace, reaching the widest audience in the world and connecting people to one another. These are some of my favourite South Africa broadcasters, DJs and personalities. Who's your fav? 📻❤ pic.twitter.com/zsXswlRnbL— Ulrich Janse van Vuuren (@UlrichJvV) February 13, 2019
