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.

Passengers were asked to volunteer to get off an easyJet plane because it was too heavy, it has been claimed. The captain of the flight to Malaga from London Southend Airport said wind conditions meant the weight of the 156-passenger Airbus 319 made it dangerous to take off. Crew members asked for volunteers while the aircraft sat on the tarmac for more than an hour last week – and ten people selected to leave were offered c... read more

"Strangelove" is Depeche Mode's 18th UK single, released on 13 April 1987, and the 1st single for the then upcoming album Music for the Masses. It reached number 16 in the UK charts, but hit number 2 in West Germany and in South Africa, and was a Top 10 success in several other countries (Sweden, Switzerland, etc.). In the US, "Strangelove" went to number 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the first of 9 number-ones on the US Dance charts, where it stayed for 3 weeks at the top.

The original version of "Strangelove" is a fast-paced pop track. Though successful, this did not seem to fit with Music for the Masses's darker style, so Daniel Miller made a slower version that became the album version. Alan Wilder, in the Q&A section of his Recoil website, writes that the band felt the single version was "too cluttered" and was the reason Miller's remix was commissioned. Miller expounded on this in the Music for the Masses re-master documentary DVD, stating he felt the original single version was too complicated and would benefit from being simplified.

It was remixed by production team Bomb the Bass and released again as a single in the USA as "Strangelove '88", finally reaching number 50 on the Hot 100.
