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.

If you're ever unhappy about your job, then spare a thought for anyone working security services in China...... The 10 000 pigeons that were released in a ceremony for China's National Day yesterday, underwent unusual scrutiny, each having its feathers and rear end checked for dangerous materials. The reason: Government had jitters over possible attacks...... Yeah, because pigeons are just mean like that. They'll start a war of poop..... ... read more

As Kylie Minogue takes to the stage 26 years after her first single for her 14th world tour, she performs with all the zest and oomph of someone still in their early twenties.

Watching her play London's O2, the city she calls her “second home”, it is hard to believe the singer is in her mid-forties. The pint-sized pop star overspills with energy as she performs hit after hit, stopping to change her outfit no less than six times, each one more glittery than the last.

Her stage presence is warm and her smile throughout seems genuine – Kylie looks like she is having fun, which has always been part of her broad appeal. She is confident singing across genres– helping her set hang together well as she changes from siren, Eighties disco queen, twee Fifties housewife, PVC policewoman and Disney princess.

At times it feels she is too eager to prove she is still down with the kids. Her dancers wear neon rave gear, while she saunters around in a leather outfit Rihanna would not think twice about wearing. Midway through the set she stops to take a mass selfie with a member of the audience’s iPhone. For new song “Sexercise”, dancers twerk while a Beyoncé-inspired black and white video of Kylie flashes in the background.

Kylie is still keen to prove she's got it - not that she needs to

Kylie has always capitalised on her sexual energy. She warms up the crowd with “Sexy Love” from her new album, rising from the stage on a giant pair of lips surrounded by dancers with long tassels for nipples. As she finishes her first three songs it’s clear she doesn’t want the audience to forget she still has it – not that she need worry.

Although her new material may rely too much on the current trend for electronic dance music-inspired pop songs, her use of pulsing beats and neon lasers throughout the show compliment her Eighties disco sound. “Can't Get You Out of My Head” becomes a slower, darker version of the original, while “Spinning Around” benefits from pulsing, funky Eighties beats and flashing disco lights.

Here's a 60 minutes interview where we look back at the life of Kylie Minogue:
