As from 1 April, South African music station 5FM will welcome new shows to its line-up. Award-winning DJ Rob Vember will host 12pm-3pm weekday slot, along with show contributor Kim Schulze, who will read the news as well as continue to helm 5FM’s CSI initiative, Youngblood5.
“Expect a fun, lighthearted and easygoing show,’ promises Cape Town-born Vember, who has hosted the Monday-Thursday, 7pm-10pm slot for three years.
Listeners get to “own’ the playlist on Sundays with the introduction of Beats By Demand, hosted by Bongi Mbelu. This exciting new show on Sundays from 10am-2pm is for people who are passionate about personalising their music. Listeners can call in to a dedicated Beats By Demand line and leave their requests and dedications which will get played during the show. Mbelu will also be doing live music requests. Another highlight is the last hour of the show, called New 1’s@1, where Bongi plays “breaking music’ – this is the first time in the week that 5FM listeners will hear all the brand new tracks that have been added to the playlist.
5FM is also pleased to welcome back a familiar face – Fikile Moeti aka Fix who returns to the station after a one-and-a-half year break in America to further her studies. Fix will bring her impressive music knowledge and DJing skills to The Saturday Nite Fix (Saturdays, 10pm-1am). She will keep the party going into the early hours of Sunday with the hottest upbeat commercial dance music from all corners of the globe.
