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.

"I'm Not Satisfied" is a song by British pop-rock band Fine Young Cannibals. It was released as the fifth single from the band's 1988 album The Raw and the Cooked. The single charted in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada.

Written by lead vocalist Roland Gift and bassist David Steele, "I'm Not Satisfied" depicts a man who criticizes the weekends for being too short, his girlfriend for being too possessive, and the city for being too depressing.

Allmusic writer Dave Thompson praised Gift's vocals, saying "so overpowering is his performance, so emotionally devastating is his dissatisfaction, that one is dragged straight into the maelstrom of misery."

It is often said that working mothers are burdened with huge guilt about not being at home with their children. But a new study seems to show that this isn’t exactly the case. Only 13 percent of working mothers questioned said they feel guilty about spending time away from home. In fact, according to the study, mothers with jobs were found to be more content with their lives than those who stay at home. 48 per... read more

"All The Things She Said" is a song recorded by Russian girl group t.A.T.u. for their debut studio album, 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane (2003). "All The Things She Said" was chosen as the lead single from the studio album in Europe on August 18, 2002, until a worldwide release in January 2003. The song was written by Sergio Galoyan, Trevor Horn, Martin Kierszenbaum, Elena Kiper and Valeriy Polienko, while production was handled by Horn. The song is set as a midtempo rock oriented song that is influenced with musical elements of electronic music and pop music. The song's lyrics is about the relationship between the two girls, how each is continually in the other's thoughts, with the themes relating to homosexuality, bisexuality and love.

Upon its release, "All the Things She Said" received mixed reviews from modern music critics. Many of the critics found the song suggestive and believed the song, along with the groups public image, was only created to generate scandal and media attention. However, musically, the song was positively received, many finding it catchy and understandable. Ever since its release, the song has been listed on song lists, including Blender and Pitchfork Media. The song had been performed many times, including on many MTV live shows, along with a megamix with "Not Gonna Get Us" at the MTV Movie Awards.

Commercially, "All The Things She Said" peaked at ?20 on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming the first Russian act to chart there. The song peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart, and reached the top five in majority of Europe and Oceania. The song's accompanying music video was directed by the group's manager, Ivan Shapovalov, in which the song caused a worldwide controversy due to the kiss between both members, causing petitions and banning in some countries. In 2003 single "All The Things She Said" has occupied 7 place in the world on sales results in 4,964,000 copies.

Prior to becoming t.A.T.u., Yulia and Lena had auditioned as members of Neposedi, a group produced by Ivan Shapolavov and his business partner Alexander Voitinskyi. Shapolavov said the two girls stood out from the rest of the those that auditioned, but fourteen-year-old Katina was initially the only one chosen for the band. While the album was in development, their producer Alexander Voitinskyi left the production, leaving the album unreleased. However, Shapolavov later signed Elena Kiper as the new co-producer and co-writer for the album, who eventually wrote "All The Things She Said". The song's Russian counterpart, "Ya Soshla S Uma", was originally written and recorded in 1999 in Russia.

The song was written as t.A.T.u.'s debut English single by Ivan Shapovalov, Sergio Galoyan, Trevor Horn, Elena Kiper and Valeriy Polienko. The song was mostly produced by English producers, like Horn, and Russian producers. At the time, neither Yulia Volkova nor Lena Katina were fluent in English. Work on the song started after the duo had finished its recording with Neposedi. On the strength of the Neposedi audition, Ivan Shapolavov signed them to Interscope Records through Universal Music Group's offices in Russia.

I trust that you’ve had a great Easter weekend? It’s been almost a whole week since I last blogged about the weight loss plan and how it was going. What I’ve decided to do is to keep it a weekly blog, and will hopefully be able to start providing weight figures as well soon. So I have a little confession to make. The Easter weekend is no time to even attempt to lose weight or keep up with a weight loss plan. Up to this point, I had been very good at... read more
