The Salvation Army March to The Experience!

We were delighted to welcome Ken Hawkins and daughter Emma (above) on to the Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela last Sunday night. ‘The Experience’ is our regular Sunday night radio show airing between 20.30 and 21.30 hrs on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station. Ken is the Principal of the Salvation Army Training College in Lusaka, a post he has held since February this year. He has been with the Salvation Army for some 20 years and the Army has been in Zambia for 90 years! Emma, and her brother Paul were on a visit to Zambia, Emma is special educational needs teacher back in South London, UK. Ken and his family were staying at Chanters Lodge for a short family holiday, wife Ann, mum Alice (84) as well as Paul were back at the lodge listening to the show. Given the Olympic Games in London and the final of Big Brother Africa in Johannesburg being broadcast at the same time as our show, our listener numbers were down. Shame!
Ken explained to our audience that the Salvation Army is a Christian church known for its thrift stores and charity work. It is an international movement that works in over 120 countries and has been described as a ‘Christian church with its sleeves rolled up!’ The Army is also known for its music and Ken said that he already knew of four Salvation Army bands in Lusaka which he described as being of ‘varying quality’. He and Emma are both musicians, Ken plays tuba and piano while Emma knows the cornet and horn. Ken said his musical preferences were jazz and orchestral, Emma that at the moment she just loved Carly Rae Jepsen! She’s not the only one….

Ken’s wife Ann is also a minister in the Salvation Army and teaches in Lusaka. Ken said that he and the family are very happy in Lusaka, loving the life style and the weather.

The music on our show was pretty far removed from gospel. We opened with the latest UK smash hits from Wiley and Example, followed with Zambian offerings from Petersen and Chilu Lemba. Petersen’s track ‘Ama Kwebo In Church’ George explained was saying that there are many things going on in church other than worship. I asked Ken for his opinion on these lyrics but he refused to be drawn! Milli Jam dropped tracks from R Kelly and Madonna. Our oldie of the week was Michael Jackson’s ‘Man In The Mirror’ – the weekly prize went unwon! My pick of the week was The Killers ‘Runaways’ and we closed with Example’s super ‘Say Nothing’.
Although Ken and Emma said they were not much interested in sport they had all the latest news from TeamGB’s sterling, or should I say golden, efforts in the London Olympics including the latest medals for Andy Murray and Jess Ennis! Ken admitted to watching Spurs in his youth but said these days it was very expensive to watch football in UK. The family had greatly enjoyed their one day safari to Chobe National Park in Botswana during their visit to Livingstone, as well as their trips to see the Falls.

Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing in ten years’ time, Ken said he hoped to still be working in Zambia with his great team, Emma that she would like to be a trained minister in the Salvation Army, still able to visit her parents back in Zambia.

It’s interesting that the international Guests we have on our programme all love Zambia! 
No big surprise there – great country, great people! Great show!


Whitney & Dave DeCamp

Meet Whitney and David DeCamp (above) from the USA. Whitney is a strategic planning analyst with the American Red Cross and Dave is a business system manager with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation, both based in Washington DC. Dave’s job involves the implementation of the Smartcare programme in conjunction with the Centre for Disease Control.

Whitney and Dave met about 11 years ago and in 2005 got married. They have recently been enjoying a short vacation at Chanters Lodge in Livingstone, so we took the opportunity to invite them to guest on our regular Sunday night radio show – The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela – airing live at 20.30 hrs on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station. On this occasion the ‘Milli Jam Ingredient’ was not feeling well so it was the ‘Kaufela Ingredient’ featuring Richard! Whitney and Dave were a little apprehensive but in the end happy to accept our invitation and they were great Guests!

“What have you been doing since you arrived in Livingstone?” George wondered early on in the set. Whitney and Dave explained that they had only arrived from Lusaka the day before, but had already managed to fit in a sunset cruise on Lady Livingstone, which they had loved, especially as they saw quite a lot of game during the trip. They had, they explained, that very morning been on the rhino walk with Bwaato Adventures, and considered the activity to be really good value for money. They had seen six rhino, including one of the babies as well as loads of other game, including cape buffalo, giraffe and zebra. Dave told listeners that he’d been attending a conference in Lusaka before they arrived in Livingstone, Whitney had, on this occasion, been able to join him for a holiday and had persuaded him to come and see Victoria Falls and he was delighted she had. They had seen the Falls and got soaking wet in the process! “All part of the fun!” They said.

The music on the show was good. We played tracks by Jeremy Greene featuring Usher as well as from Miley Cyrus, Roberto and Kaufela, moving on to Pitbull featuring Shakira – or was it the other way round? Newton Faulkner featured too. Our oldie of the week was by Shabba Ranks. We give away a dinner for two to the first person to text us telling us who’s the artist on our weekly oldie and this week a certain Albert win the prize. Our pick of the week was Call My Name – Florence and The Machine’s first every UK number one, featuring Calvin Harris and we closed with Taio Cruz’a latest ‘Fast Car’.

Dave told listeners that he loves country music and baseball, while Whitney likes alternative rock and American football. Their favourite teams are both from Baltimore. Asked how they had found out about Chanters Lodge Whitney explained that they had found the lodge well reviewed on TripAdvisor and that they were more than happy that they had made the lodge their choice.

Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing in ten years’ time, this lively and loving couple expressed an interest in coming back to live in Zambia with their, as yet, unborn children. We wondered if it was hard for Whitney with Dave travelling so much in his job, but they explained that the internet, Skype and things made it much easier than it used to be! Were the guys on Facebook or Twitter? Yes both, but Dave claimed he had no followers on Twitter! We determined to do something about that!


Tablet Time For Hotels

Gosh! Here’s some food for thought from HotelInteractive! and Mr. Larry Mogelonsky – CHA

In case you haven’t noticed, there’s this great new piece of technology gaining massive acceptance, generically called the Tablet PC.  Your guests will be arriving with them.  Your competitors will be finding ways to use them.  So what are you doing about it?

If you’re not convinced this new technology is important, consider this: Apple, the world’s leading tablet computer manufacturer, shipped over 14 million iPads in Q1 2012 alone, nearly quadruple the amount of laptops (MacBooks) they sold in the same period.  On an industry scale, sales of tablets are up about 300% year-over-year, while sales of notebook PCs have basically plateaued.  This adoption rate is faster than just about any new technology to hit the marketplace in recent history, including the DVD player, PC, or smart phone.

The first question to ask yourself is whether or not your hotel is tablet friendly.  Have you checked your website on a tablet to see how it looks?  Can customers book from a tablet as easily as they can on a computer?  Most tablets will only have two plugs – one to connect to a computer or power source and another for headphones.  Without an Ethernet port, you better have WiFi available for your tablet guests and ideally, at no additional cost.  Excuse the pun, but hardwired Internet just doesn’t cut it anymore.

Once a guest arrives, there are many other interactions where tablets can make a strong impression.  Rather than having your concierge show someone a paper brochure for an amenity or activity, why not present it to them on a tablet?  It will impress your guests and allow you to show them a variety of material without interruption; introducing and enticing them to use more of your services.

At your restaurant, try showcasing your wine list with an app for users to browse by type, price and vintage.  You’ll save big on reprints.  Many wine list apps today can integrate with your inventory to only show those that are presently available, as well as ideal food pairings.  You might even consider using tablets to replace the paper menu all together!

At check-in, consider having a tablet available so that your front desk staff can use them to up-sell rooms.  It is easy to create simple presentations on features and benefits in a quick slideshow of illustrious photography.

What about behind the scenes?  Think about how your staff members can keep track of guest requirements.  Integrating a tablet app with your property PMS can go a long way to help reduce the waste associated with daily room printouts as well as speed up internal communication.  Applications such as the dashboard system I have developed, Inn at a Glance, are designed to work seamlessly in a tablet configuration for this purpose.

These are just some of the ways that tablets can integrate into your hotel’s operation.  Mind you, it’s not an overnight adjustment because there is the fixed cost of purchasing each unit and there are some security issues (never mind that you might have to install WiFi throughout your hotel).  However, with their exponential adoption rate, you’ll need to be tablet-compatible and tablet-chic if you want to attract the younger tech-savvy crowd. 

Best get with the program before it’s too late!

From Oklahoma, USA to Livingstone, Zambia

Meet Staci and Lance Norton (standing, left to right) as well as Mackenzie and Madison Gillham (seated left to right) from Oklahoma, USA, our recent Guests at Chanters Lodge as well as on the most recent edition of The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient, featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela. That’s our regular Sunday night radio show on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s popular local radio station. The lodge sponsors the show, which is a mixture of music and chat – popular locally due to the fact that we give away a weekly dinner for two at the lodge to the first person to text us telling us who’s singing our ‘oldie of the week’. This week George chose a track from Zambia’s popular Sakala Brothers and the prize was quickly snapped up by a lucky listener!

The Nortons and Gillhams told listeners that they’d arrived in Zambia on May 23rd primarily to visit and participate for a while in the running of The New Day Orphanage in Mpanza in the Southern Province of Zambia, some one and a half hours from Choma. Lance is Youth Minister at Union Hill Baptist Church in Oklahoma and New Day Orphanage is sponsored and run by the Baptist Mission in Zambia. The orphanage is still small with about 14 children aged between 4 and 8 years. They had enjoyed their time in the ‘bush’ helping to teach the children religious studies, as well as basic reading, writing and arithmetic skills. Staci and Lance Norton had visited Zambia last year, but for the girls it was their first visit. Milli Jam was delighted to be able to talk briefly to Lance in the Tonga language!

Madison, the older of the two sisters explained that she was a third year student of early childhood education at South Western Oklahoma State University, and Mackenzie that she is at the same college as her sister studying first year pre-veterinary medicine. For once, when we had girls on the programme, Milli Jam forgot to ask them if they had boyfriends waiting for them back home! The girls told listeners that their dad was a farmer and their mum a beautician back in the USA.

The music on the show had a distinct African flavour with tracks by Exile and Judy from Zambia, Diamond from Tanzania and Naeto C from Nigeria. We also played Loreen’s Eurovision Song Contest winning ‘Euphoria’, as well as Philip Phillips’ ‘Home’ – the girls were happy to hear that Philip had recently won the American Idol show – news they had missed while they were deep in Southern Province, Zambia!

Lance and Staci told listeners that they’d been able to fit in quite a lot of tourist activities since they’d arrived in Livingstone. They had taken the one day safari to Chobe in Botswana, and had been delighted to see a wide range of animals including lion, giraffe and elephant as well as a whole host of birds. They’d taken the helicopter flight over Victoria Falls – the girls admitted to being ‘a little bit scared’. They had seen the Falls from the Zimbabwe side as well as from here in Zambia. They had ridden elephants, walked with lions, encountered cheetahs and the next day were scheduled for a game drive to try and see rhino. They had not done the bungee jump – ‘not brave enough’ they said! Quite a package anyway! They described Victoria Falls as ‘amazing;.

Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing ten years from now, Mackenzie calculated that at that stage she would be two years out of vet school and practicing her profession. Madison hoped to be pre-school teaching and raising a family. We wished them luck with their ambitions.


A Funky Experience

Anyone who’s listened to our Sunday night radio show knows it’s usually funky and last week’s episode was particularly so! Why? Well one of our two Guests (pictured above) was Doug Funk! In the photo with Doug is Gertrude Muma, part of Zambia’s Ministry of Education and Doug’s working colleague who came to the studio to see what we do. We were delighted to pursuade Doug to appear on the show – he’s been a regular visitor to Chanters Lodge for a number of years, and has recommended us far and wide, for which we are most grateful!

Our Sunday night radio show is called The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient, featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela and is a great mix of Zambian and international pop music, as well as chat with our weekly guests. Milli Jam and George, both well known Livingstone radio presenters and local entertainers, host our show which airs from 20.30-21.30 live on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station. 
Doug told listeners that his visit to Zambia was to promote the THRASS programme in Zambia’s primary schools, holding workshops for teachers. THRASS stands for teaching, handwriting, reading and spelling skills. The programme is aimed at giving youngsters a better grasp of English, which they would need in times to come for better education and their future prospects. Doug explained that he hailed from Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, was married with three sons and at one time had lived and worked in Zimbabwe as an expatriate for 5 years between 1987 and 1992. He loved Africa and had travelled very widely across the whole continent. On this most recent trip he’d arrived via Malawi and Lundazi in Zambia’s Eastern Province.
The music on the show was great. Opening as usual with Olly Murs’ ‘Dance With Me Tonight’ we moved on to ‘Scream’ by Usher and ‘Drinks On Me’ by LMFAO. George’s Zambian selection featured Runell’s ‘Amayendele’ – there was some debate on the meaning but Gertrude ventured ‘we can walk free’. The second local number was Shyman’s ‘Nikumona’. Milli Jam chose Yoav vs Pascal and Pearce with ‘Beautiful Lie’ and T Pain Featuring Ne-Yo with ‘Turn All The Lights On’. Oldie of the week was Rascal Flatts’ – ‘Bless The Broken Road’ – no-one knew who was singing it, so our weekly prize went unwon for once. “Ha ha!” (Said Richard). Pick of the Week was Ben Howard’s ‘Only Love’ and we closed with Skepta’s ‘Make Peace Not War’.
Doug said during his numerous visits to Livingstone he had. at various times, flown the ‘Flight Of Angels’ microlight over the Falls and swum in Devil’s Pool on Livingstone Island. He’d got very wet seeing the Falls from the ground. His favourite sport was ice hockey (about which the rest of us knew nothing!) He’d been raised by farmers and farming had been his first choice of career before he ventured into education. He told listeners he chose Chanters Lodge for his visits to Livingstone because it felt more homely than the other lodges in town he’d tried.

Asked where he’d like to be and what he’d like to be doing 10 years from now, Doug replied ‘exactly what I’m doing now, I love it!’ The first time I can remember anyone giving that reply. Thanks again Doug! And everyone else who makes our weekly show possible and successful!


The Experience

‘The Experience’ is ‘The Chanters Lodge Experience with The Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela, and it’s our regular Sunday night radio show airing weekly from 20.30 to 21.30 hrs CAT on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station. This week’s Guests, pictured above, were Peter and Jane Kohlhoff hailing from Sydney, Australia, briefly visiting Zambia for the first time and staying at Chanters Lodge. This loving married couple told listeners that they’d been married for 357 days and we took the opportunity to wish them ‘happy first anniversary’ in advance! Peter is a professional musician and Jane a psychologist – they told listeners that they both work freelance. Jane has her own psychology practice which operates one or two days a week and for the rest of the time she is involved with research. Peter plays bass guitar and double bass and has been involved in music since he was a teenager.

The music on our show was good. We opened with ‘Take Care’ by Drake featuring Rihanna, back to back with Justin Bieber’s latest smash ‘Boyfriend’. George chose B1’s ‘Perfecto’ currently a very popular track in Zambia together with ‘Chitemene System’ by B-Flow featuring Exile and JK. Milli Jam dropped Usher’s ‘Without You’ and ‘How We Roll’ by Loick Essien featuring Tanya Lacey. Our ‘oldie of the week’ was ‘Sweet Soul Sister’ by Train. We asked listeners to text us right away when they knew who was singing on the track – that’s if they wanted to win a dinner for two at Chanters Lodge. But no-one knew! I had predicted this! We gave the prize (off air) to our two hard working presenters, George and Milli Jam! My pick of the week was ‘Blackout’ by Breathe Carolina.

Peter and Jane explained that they’d arrived in Zambia the previous Thursday from South Africa and would be returning there as Jane would be attending a meeting for psychologists after their stay in Zambia. The day they’d arrived they’d taken the sunset cruise on Lady Livingstone which they’d loved. The following day they’d gone on a two day camping trip to Chobe National Park in Botswana. They’d been very lucky not only to see hundreds of elephants, common in Chobe, but also lion and leopard. They had seen lots of other species as well. Peter and Jane had returned to Zambia on the day of our show, and had been to see Victoria Falls which they had loved – ending with a sundowner at the Royal Livingstone Hotel. They told listeners that they were not so much into sport as lots of Australians but loved their music.

Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing ten years from now, they hesitated and then Peter said ‘I do not know, but I am looking forward to it’! Peter and George spent time discussing music off air, and we hope their plans for some sort of collaboration bear fruit – Peter has played on over 150 recordings and should certainly be able to assist Soulchild in his ambitions!


The Finnish Experience

I don’t remember having Finnish guests on the Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela until last week’s show, so it was a pleasure to welcome Minttu Markannen (front left) and Susanna Mustonen (front right) who featured on the latest edition of our regular Sunday night radio programme on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station. The girls were accompanied to the studio by Minttu’s mum Pivy (back right) and her friend Marita, all of whom were Guests at Chanters Lodge. It was a lovely happy Easter Sunday show with lively chat, great music, and of course the prize of a dinner for two at Chanters Lodge for the first person to text us telling us who was singing our ‘oldie of the week’. Milli Jam’s selection was Ne-Yo’s ‘So Sick’ and there was an immediate deluge of messages most of whom had the right answer, but no-one was faster than Felistus who won!

The girls told listeners that they came from Helsinki, the capital of Finland, and were both student nurses. They were currently working in Lilongwe, Malawi for a few months as part of a student exchange programme between Kamuzu Hospital in Lilongwe and the University of Helsinki, where they were both studying, in the final year of a three year degree course in nursing. The girls were very much enjoying their experience and told us there were huge differences between health care in Finland and Malawi, for example in Finnish hospitals roughly 6 nurses to less than 30 patients, in Malawi 5 nurses for 200+ patients!
The music on the show was great – we opened with Carly Jae Repson’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ a former number 1 in Canada, debuting at number 1 in the UK charts that very day. The guys dropped this track back to back with Nicki Minaj’s ‘Va Va Voom’ from her latest Roman Reloaded album – number 1 in the UK album charts – we are nothing if not right up to date on ‘The Experience’!  George played Judy’s ‘Chikawama’ and Roberto’s ‘Osayenda’ for his Zambian tracks. Other tracks were by Micasa, a South African, with a number called ‘Heavenly Streets’, Sean Paul, and Labrinth featuring Emeli Sande.
Milli Jam wanted to know how the group had travelled from Malawi to Livingstone and the girls explained that Kenya Airways had cancelled their flights, consequently they’d been obliged to travel the whole way by coach but they’d been determined to come and see Victoria Falls! They told us the effort had been totally worthwhile as they had now seen the magnificent sight of the Falls in full flood – and gotten very wet in the process! They had a one day safari planned to Chobe in Botswana the next day. They were not sure how many other activities they would be able to fit in as they had to be back in Lilongwe by the following Thursday, and once again would have to travel the whole way back to Malawi by coach.

Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing in 10 years time, the girls who are both single, had different replies. They said they wanted to be ‘excellent nurses’ but Minttu gave the impression she would still like to be studying, while Susanna said she hoped she would be nursing, married and have children.

We thought their African experience would stand them in good stead for the future!


Snow On The Experience!

Snow in Africa?! Well, in a way….David and Heather Snow with daughter Mandie (above) from Christchurch in Dorset UK, were guests on the most recent edition of The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient, featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela – that’s our weekly Sunday night radio show on Zambezi 107.7 fm, Livingstone’s leading local radio station. This, despite David and Mandie both being Spurs supporters!! The family were great guests, full of life and, for the most part, laughter!

Responding to Milli Jam’s questions, David and Heather said they’d been married for 43 years and had originally met at a game of skittles (I explained this game to George and Milli Jam, who looked bemused). “Was it love at first sight?” We wanted to know. “No!” said David quickly “Nor second sight”! Heather was not amused! They told us that Mandie was their only daughter and that they were taking her on trips across the world in the hope that she would meet ‘Mr Right’! “He’d better be rich”! Instructed David.

The family told listeners that they’d arrived in Livingstone just three days previously and that it was their first visit to Zambia, despite having previously travelled to many other African countries. David and Heather were both retired. David had worked for years on off shore oil rigs, for the most part ‘on’ for 56 days, ‘off’ for 28, as well as generally in the oil industry. Heather had been a teaching assistant before retirement. Daughter Mandie explained that she works in the housing department for local government in Dorset and was involved with re-housing homeless people.

The music on the show was up to date, and amongst other tracks we featured Mavado’s beautiful ‘Soulja Girl’ back to back with Madonna’s ‘Gang Bang’ – one of the few interesting tracks on her insipid new album. George featured Bryan’s ‘Tsunami’ back to back with T-Sean, Petersen and Dalisoul with their controversial ‘Adam’ for his Zambian selection. Milli Jam picked Adele’s ‘Set Fire To The Rain’. Our oldie of the week was James Blunt’s ‘Superstar’ and the prize for texting us the name of the performing artist was quickly snapped up by a listener in Nsongwe Village, out of town. We were delighted. JLS with ‘Proud’ and Emeli Sande with ‘River’ closed the show.

The family told listeners that they had loved their lion encounter and helicopter over the Falls combo that they’d done that day, and of course had been thrilled by Victoria Falls. They were looking forward to their forthcoming one week safari through Botswana, especially their time in the Okavango Delta.

Avoiding any more mention of football, we asked Heather what music she liked – Paul Weller was her answer and she was happy to hear that his new album had charted at number one in UK that very day. Mum Heather liked Cliff Richard and Tom Jones. Asked where they would like to be and what they would like to be doing ten years from now the family said they would like to be healthy, happy and travelling.

It was a super show with super Guests and great music!


‘The Experience’ – Wangaratta to Livingstone

Meet Corienne (above right) and Ginny Krich, all the way from Wangaratta in Victoria State, Australia.  Corienne and Ginny, guests at Chanters Lodge, Livingstone appeared on the latest edition of The Chanters Lodge Experience with the Milli Jam Ingredient featuring George da Soulchild Kaufela – that’s our regular weekly Sunday night radio show airing between 20.30 and 21.30 hours on Zambezi 107.7 fm – Livingstone’s leading local radio station. The show is a great mixture of music and chat. We feature news from the international pop charts as well as giving away a weekly prize of a dinner for two, to the first person to text us telling us who’s singing our ‘oldie of the week’. On this particular show no-one won! Listeners could not tell me that Sipho Hotstix Mabuse was singing ‘Burn Out’ – shame!

Corienne and Ginny told listeners that they were mother and daughter and had arrived in Zambia just the day before – it was their first visit to the country and they were very much looking forward to their stay. They had a busy activity schedule ahead of them beginning with an elephant safari the very next day. They would also be taking a sunset cruise, doing the rhino walk, the lion encounter, visiting Victoria Falls and taking a cultural tour as well as a safari in the Chobe National Park, Botswana. They were both very excited about the prospect.

The music on the show featured ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ – the Walk Off The Earth version, coupled with Jason Derulo’s ‘Lockdown’. George chose Mr Vezzy’s ‘Every Day’ back to back with ‘Boza’ by Jay-Rox for his Zambian selection, while Milli Jam featured Beyonce’s smash ‘Love On Top’ with Rihanna’s ‘Birthday Cake’ remix featuring Chris Brown – naughty that one! Our pick of the week was Dappy featuring Brian May with ‘Rockstar’ and we closed with ‘Live My Life’ by Far East Movement featuring Justin Bieber. All latest! All good!

Corienne told listeners that she worked for an NGO in Wangaratta helping to provide homes for neglected children, that she was married to Ginny’s dad who’d retired and who had been left at home in Australia to take care of their three cats! They had a son as well, a pharmacist currently on holiday in Sri Lanka. Ginny told us she had been a hairdresser for the past twelve years, that she was single and loved being free to do as she pleased! She was due to go to college when her holiday finished, in order to study a course which would lead to a qualification allowing her to take up work similar to her mum’s current job.

I took the chance to tell listeners about Pinterest, a fairly new ‘scrapbook’ site on the internet, as well as information about how to find us on Twittter and Facebook. We thanked Zambezi 107.7 fm for the purchase of a new mixing deck making the production of our programme much easier and more professional.

Corienne and Ginny explained that they’d be spending a week at the coast in Namibia after their time in Zambia. Corienne’s favourite music was anything by The Beatles whereas Ginny favoured hard rock – the Foo Fighters amongst other bands. When asked where they would like to be and what they’d like to be doing in ten years’ time this delightful mother/daughter combo said they had ‘absolutely no idea’. We laughed!
