About Graham Roberts
Graham Roberts
“Keep it real”, is the advice from Graham who started with the station in September 2011. He joined Algoa FM at a pivotal time, in December 2011, when we extended our broadcast area into the Garden Route. “Being a part of the expansion into the Garden Route, and being the first presenter on air at the time of the switch-on was phenomenal”.

Graham’s cool, calm, collected and kind attitude towards everything and everyone he meets, keeps him grounded. This born and raised East London boy, has a passion for music and says, “I just really love music, and as a result collect CD’s and LP’s”.

Graham feels honoured to work amongst the people he grew up listening to including Daron Mann, Lance Du Plessis and Charl Leslie. “They’ve been my inspiration to want to follow a career in radio, and they’re people that I look up to and respect greatly”.

Graham keeps the momentum going as he opens up the lines to listeners to dedicate songs from the Algoa FM playlist, keeping them entertained throughout as they make the best of their weekend with good music and good conversation.

"Angel Eyes (Home and Away)" was the third single from Wet Wet Wet's debut album, Popped In Souled Out. It was released on 30 November 1987 and reached #5 in the UK charts. The lyrics in the chorus make reference to two Hal David and Burt Bacharach compositions "Walk On By" and "The Look of Love".

 

Marti Pellow recorded his own version of the song for inclusion on his 2002 album Marti Pellow Sings the Hits of Wet Wet Wet & Smile.

 

An earlier version of the song - entitled Home and Away - featured on the 1986 Glasgow band's compilation cassette Honey at the Core.

Cambodia broke the Guinness World Record for the largest Madison dance, on Wednesday, according to a competition judge.

 

The 2015 participants performed the Madison dance for five minutes at the complex of the Angkor world heritage site in northwest Cambodia’s Siem Reap City to celebrate Khmer New Year, which began on Tuesday, and ran for three days.

 

The dance was organised by the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia, which is led by Prime Minister Hun Sen’s youngest son Hun Many.

 

The Madison, originated in the United States in the late 1950s, is particularly popular over Khmer New Year celebrations and wedding receptions. Hun Many said that it was the second Guinness World Records title for Cambodia after a 4.04 ton sticky rice cake, produced for the Khmer New Year celebration, was included in the Guinness Book of Records on Monday as the largest ever sticky rice cake made.

 

Could this re-interest in the Madison see this being the next big dance craze around the world?

 

If you didn't know what it was, here's a short lesson....
