RADIO RHODESIA

"6:30 Get up up up up up..." This was the wake up call of a rotund fun loving clown by the name of Leslie Sullivan who was the morning man on Radio Rhodesia. Leslie, I am told was quite a night owl and would show up about 45 minutes before Radio Rhodesia went on the air and had a "Power Sleep" waking just in time to get the morning radio show kicked off.

At about 5 minutes to 6 in the morning, the day began on the air for Radio Rhodesia. It started with "A thought for the day", an inspirational message to help face the day. At 6AM the morning call would go out announcing what meter band and wave length the RBC could be picked up on.

When I think of this, somehow the aroma of toast and Jungle Oats come to mind. Between 6AM and 6:30 a short recap of the news and weather forecast for the day were given, some music played and then, 'voila! it was time for Leslie to perform his magic and get the children out of bed with his "Get up up up" routine. He usually followed with a kiddie song like "Teddy Bears' picnic or "Pink Toothbrush" but the greatest was when, once a year, he would play a short piece each morning from a story about a fat Chinese boy who fell down a well but because of his long name lost potential rescuers when he would call out for help. His name that being Nicky Nicky Tembo Oh So Rembo, Ooh Ma Muchi Gamma Gamma Guchi !!

Leslie was always so much fun to wake up to in the morning, it almost took the sting out of having to get ready to go to work or school.

His audience comprised of both parents and children. Later in the morning it was time for another sorcerer to perform his Radio magic, in the form of a kindly chap by the name of Don Burdette. Don had a hospital request show with "Silver Lining" as his theme music. Don showed tremendous empathy for the ailing whether it was a "new mum" at the Lady Chancellor hospital or Lady Rodwell Hospital, or a malaria case in Salisbury Central hospital, maybe Umtali General, The Mater Dei in Bulawayo or Greenwood Park hospital or even someone recuperating at home. Don always saved a special segment for his "Little Horrors", the sick children who were in hospital. Usually he would play Alvin and the Chipmunks. It always perked a person up listening to his kindly voice admonishing you to cheer up and get better soon.

Around noon, shortly after the "Daily Service", a wonderful woman by the name of Beryl Salt would exhort children to "Bring a cushion or a chair right up to the radio", at which time she would read a story with the most amazing professionalism, never mispronouncing a word, stuttering or losing a beat. I will never forget her for she made my childhood so much more enjoyable with her lovely voice.

Around 2PM there was usually a short news update, following which a "Serial" came on. It was usually a radio theatre presentation of a book and so very well done. These programs brought something to look forward to and were seldom missed.

Radio really had an impact on our lives as Television did not come on until 6PM and that was only in the larger cities, until later years as technology became better. It was the great spirit in a small box that penetrated our soul and mind and left that indelible image there. It forced your imagination to take you to places your eye could not see, truly wonderful! Monday nights there was a great show entitled "The Missing Persons Bureau" about an agency that traced folks who had disappeared. Henry Simon, was the director of the bureau.

During the rest of the week several radio drama shows were done usually by some great entertainers like Ken Marshall and his beautiful wife Claire. These folk along with other celebrities not only did wonderful radio dramas but often performed in plays at the well known Reps theatre in Salisbury.

There were many fine voices on the air - one was Gerry Wilmot who left Radio Rhodesia to work for Lourenco Marques radio, I think that was about 1961 or 1962.

My favorite day was Saturday for all the great hit music generally got played. Ian Warren had a show at 9AM playing new songs that were potential hits. Everyone's favorite was none other than Lyons Maid hits of the week. The show was done by Martin Locke and Trig Tregaskis who not only had a great radio voice but held quite an appeal to the young ladies. Much to the annoyance of his wife.

Each week there was a jackpot, and if the top ten hits of the week were predicted correctly the winner would win the amount, or if he or she got the top three correct free ice cream was in the works! How we lived for this show! Martin left the Rhodesian airwaves for a while and Keith Kennedy took over the show. Both gentlemen were excellent at their craft and the show was tremendously successful. Trig took over as DJ on Radio Jacaranda where he remained until he left for South Africa in 1978.

Another great at Radio Rhodesia was a guy that I thought never got enough credit for his excellence and that was Malcolm Russell.

Malcolm had a show called "New Tracks" and it was the last biggie for we young folk on a Saturday morning. The show's theme song was "I Will Follow Him" and was just super. Saturday afternoon at 2PM, a radio game show, "The Eyegene Jackpot", was presented and it was quite enjoyable.

A game show program presented by Mervin Hamilton and Vic Matheson that featured housewives pushing a shopping cart around Meikles gathering groceries without duplicating items in an allotted time, brought excitement to the listeners. It was always quite a rush to listen to.

My favorite was "Forces Requests" with Sally Donaldson on Saturday afternoons. Sally was a beautiful young woman with a voice to match. She played all the forces favorites and with the escalating terrorist bush war she became very popular as young men went off to defend their country. Dusk was usually falling as we would listen with the lights turned out in our living room. It was so peaceful thanks to our security forces. Sadly Sally passed away a few years ago but her wonderful personality, charm and looks will never be forgotten.

There were several distinguished voices like that of John Bishop and Peter Tobin that graced our airwaves.

As the years passed small stations were set up in the provinces that covered local issues for about 2 or 3 hours on Friday nights. I have a smile on my face thinking of all the fond memories of a wonderful Radio station. My times for the programming may be slightly off bearing in mind all of this happened so long ago and in a land far away!

Thanks to all of these dear people, some still with us, others not but everyone is fondly remembered and never forgotten. "Why be difficult when with just a little effort you can be bloody impossible"

Thank you to the Unknown Source

THE IDEAL BOOK FOR CHRISTMAS

This is a story about a paradise lost. . . . About an African dream that began with a murder . . . In 1978, in the final, bloodiest phase of the Rhodesian civil war, eleven-year-old Lauren St John moves with her family to Rainbow's End, a wild, beautiful farm and game reserve set on the banks of a slow flowing river. The house has been the scene of a horrific attack by guerrillas, and when Lauren's family settles there, a chain of events is set in motion that will change her life irrevocably.

Rainbow's End captures the overwhelming beauty and extraordinary danger of life in the African bush. Lauren's childhood reads like a girl's own adventure story. At the height of the war, Lauren rides through the wilderness on her horse, Morning Star, encountering lions, crocodiles, snakes, vicious ostriches, and mad cows. Many of the animals are pets, including Miss Piggy and Bacon and an elegant giraffe named Jenny. The constant threat of ruthless guerrillas prowling the land underscores everything, making each day more dangerous, vivid, and prized than the last.

The book is $20.00 and entire proceeds are being donated to Children's' Charities in Bulawayo, under the auspices of Morning Mirror and the generous author Lauren St John.

THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO
Friday 9 December in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m. - with supper interval. This favourite opera comes in a production from Glyndebourne chosen as the best of all available recorded versions. "It is a performance of distinction, wonderfully conducted by Bernard Haitink and with first-class principals...

[Edward Greenfield] Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

MR.POPPER'S PENGUINS

Try Leonard Maltin's view: "Call it corn if you like, but Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical based on Austria's real-life Von Trapp family who fled their homeland in 1938 to escape from Nazi rule, pleased more people than practically any other film in history. Fine music, beautiful scenery and five Oscars..." Admission: $3.00 [free to Film Subscribers]

TCHAIKOVSKY: THE SLEEPING BEAUTY
Thursday 22 December in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m. Petipa's The Sleeping Beauty is one of the best-loved of classical ballets, combining in a single work all the enchantment and virtuosity that ballet has to offer. The royal court, the panoramic journey of the Prince to the overgrown castle and the great celebratory dances of the happy ending (in which other famous fairytale figures appear) are all brought to life by the luscious designs of the celebrated production created in 1946 for the Royal Ballet. The inspired performances of its revival for the 75th anniversary of the Company in 2006 with Alina Cojocaru, Marianela Nuñez, Genesia Rosato and Federico Bonelli in the leading roles make this a superb tribute to the Royal Ballet's unique style and visual splendour. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

TCHAIKOVSKY: CHEREVICHKI [THE TSARINA'S SLIPPERS]
Friday 23 December in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m. - with supper interval. The Sleeping Beauty is followed by much less well-known Tchaikovsky. Based on Gogol's comic story, this magical opera tells of how Vakula the blacksmith has to enlist the Devil's aid on Christmas Eve to fulfill his fianc es demand that he give her Catherine the Great's slippers as a Christmas present. "This fantastic tale is brought vividly to life in Francesca Zambello's vibrant 2009 production for the Royal Opera House. Against a background of iconic set designs, the fine, largely Russian cast is joined by Cossack dancers and members of the Royal Ballet to create a spectacle of festive magnificence!" Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

3) Roses And Raspberries
ROSES

Thank you to all the Petra team in progress and to Mr. Ndlovu for doing such a fantastic job with Savannah. We are so proud to have such great results and it is due to the teachers hard work and dedication.
WE are so proud of you.

ROSES

Acres of roses to the stalwart team of workers responsible for re-painting the white / yellow lines on many roads around the City , especially at intersections , and in Burns Drive , which has been a really dangerous place to be .
THANK YOU !

Many roses to whoever is responsible for filling with tarmac the countless potholes along Fairbridge Way . The very poor condition of this road was a contributory factor in a minor accident in which I was recently involved .
It is hoped that the rest of this road will be repaired in an equally permanent manner very soon .
THANK YOU !

RASPBERRIES
Buckets full of raspberries to TelOne for the non-arrival of the 2011 Telephone Directory which, it is understood, was ready to distribute a few months ago.

Included with my latest account , is an advertisement from Yellow Pages which has " begun canvassing for the 2012 edition of the TelOne Telephone Directory". REALLY ? with no product exposure in 2011 , are there many companies prepared to risk the same again ?
AS A PAID-UP SUBSCRIBER , WHERE IS MY 2011 TELEPHONE DIRECTORY ?

4) Congratulations

Congratulations to Jenni Williams, for the award of the French National Order of Merit, and her place in Amnesty International's Top 50 of the World's Women of Conscience, and to all the women of WOZA with whom she stands shoulder to shoulder in the fight for what is right.

I remember going into the shop one day and seeing Arthur standing over the Newspaper which was spread out on the floor. I asked what on earth he was doing???...he said "reading the paper, my arms have grown too short, I can only read it from up here!!"
I think one of Arthur's sons was at Hamilton with William, our younger son.
Val Taylor - RSA

THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS FRIENDS WHO HELP US THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

My name is Geoff Parbhoo and I am 74 years of age, a widower with a 15 year old daughter, who is at present attending the Dominican Convent High School.

I am appealing for financial assistance due to he heavy bill I have received from the Mater Dei Hospital, following my late wife's admissions to the ICU, and her subsequent moves to the surgery wards. She had an acute intestinal obstruction with complications. The benefits I have received from MASCA have been completely exhausted, and I am faced with an outstanding account of $16 416,48. The Hospital requires $1 631,15 immediately for the Blood Transfusions alone. I did approach the Bulawayo Help Network to see if they could offer me any help, and they kindly gave me $700,00 to be of some assistance.

My salary is a modest one i.e. $1 000,00 per month gross, and I have a home to run and a daughter to educate. My account number with the Mater Dei is: MD201101486:1. I hold a small account with the POSB No 206530002019. This debt is causing me no mean distress and sleepless nights, and any contribution to bring this figure down will be most gratefully received.

AS THE CHRISTMAS SEASON APPROACHES, Betty Chiwambo is appealing for assistance to give her GOOD HOPE ORPHAN CARE children a Christmas treat.

Your support in the form of food, clothing and toys would be very much appreciated.
Please contact Betty on 482688 or Leila Hunt on 203022

XMAS PARTY
It is almost Xmas time again and I am appealing for the generous support of the Bulawayo business and public to help with donations to enable us to host a Christmas Tree Party for the 22 permanent adult residents of Sir Humphrey Gibbs Home for the Intellectually Challenged.
We have managed, thru the generous support to host this party over the past three years. This has become a very special day for the residents and they look forward to their party which includes Santa bringing them each a little gift, dancing, party food, hamburgers and ice-cream. We need about US $ 500 to enable us to do this. Any extra monies raised is used in the following months to buy little extras for the residents ie: meat and personal toiletries.
If you think that you can help out in any way, be it in kind on the day, cash donation or material donation, to make this their special day, please do contact me
Thanking you in advance

PLEASE CIRCULATE:
This is a warning email to all residents in Zimbabwe who travel on a Foreign Passport but have Zimbabwe Drivers Licences and I.D.'s.
Over the past week numerous people have been arrested at the Beit Bridge Border, in brief the reports are as follows:

Residents arriving back in Zimbabwe, having cleared Customs and Immigration proceed to the Z.R.P. office to Clear their Vehicles, at this office the Residents are then asked to produce their Travel Documents, I.D and Drivers License, on producing these documents those who are in possession of the Foreign Passport but Zimbabwe I.D. and or Zimbabwe Drivers Licence are told they are under arrest and will appear in Court the following day. On asking which Chapter of the Codification Act is being Violated, the police officers then request a hefty bribe, and then let the people go.

Having investigated these allegations I have been informed by C.I.D. Head Quarters the coordinators office in particular that there is no such law and that these allegations are purely criminal, the people have not committed any crime.

I have been asked to circulate this email and ask folks to please come forward and email me what happened to them, your email must include the day you came through the Border back to Zimbabwe, the time and if it was uniform or plain clothed police that harassed you, and the full amount paid in bribes.

This is a serious case of harassment and extortion and a full investigation is going to be opened in to this matter, nothing will happen to you, but I need these complaints in writing to strengthen the case, we are coming up to the holiday time and schools close next week and many people will be traveling so I need to stop this now before it gets completely out of hand.

Club 50 update and notice board will follow later this morning.

Thank you

BULAWAYO PUBLICITY ASSOCIATION

The first weekend in December is going to be a very busy one. Fifty years ago on 1st December the doors to the newly built Bulawayo Theatre building in Centenary Park were officially opened. The entertainment planned to commemorate this event includes a 'Dinner Theatre' on Friday 2nd December and table booking should be made well in advance through the Theatre Secretary and then a panto 'Snow White and the Seven Aliens' running from the 7th to 17th December. The Bulawayo Public has enjoyed a year of most enjoyable concerts and all involved are to be congratulated and thanked.

THE IVORY KRAAL in Petcon Complex, Doncaster Road, Belmont East, will have an all-day Christmas Market on Friday 2nd December with arts and crafts geared for Christmas. THE RIVER ESTATE complex in 12th Avenue next to BAC will remain open until 9 p.m. Apart from TENDELE CRAFTS and RIVERSIDE ARTS and CRAFTS there will be Christmas stalls. The restaurants will also be open and there will be live music and entertainment.

ALOE MOTEL on the Johannesburg Road near Chipangali Wild Life Orphanage will be holding a fun day for the children on Saturday on Saturday 3rd December, with all kinds of activities planned as well as swimming. For more information contact Karen on Africa Spectacular on afspec@yoafrica.com Tel (09) 244990. Refreshments and food not included

There has been a resurgence in track racing due to the sterling efforts of the BMC Committee in overhauling the track and its facilities. The major event this year will be the 3 hour Endurance Race at the Falls Road circuit on Saturday 3rd December starting at 11:15 a.m. A large contingent of cars and motor cycles from Harare, and South Africa are expected to participate.

THE BULAWAYO PERFORMING ARTS at the Academy of Music has laid on a full December programme of opera and ballet DVDs as well as some of the popular classics such as Sound of Music and Dr Zhivago. We are fortunate to have a vibrant Performing Arts which has ensured that the public has had a variety of entertainment throughout the year in form of concerts with international and South African musician, excellent DVDs as well as performances given by artists sponsored by the Alliance Francais and other Embassies.

CHRISTMAS LUNCHES

Holiday Inn Bulawayo, Cresta Churchill and the Bulawayo Rainbow Hotel; Bon Journee; Nesbitt Castle, New Orleans Restaurant, Southern Comfort Lodge and the Garden Restaurant on 12th Ave/Park Road. This year there will be no Christmas lunch at the Country Club. Caf Munandi in Haddon & Sly Building will be open throughout the festive season. They give a 10% discount on all special events.

It is sad that some Bulawayo people are sceptical about the value of the Association and wondering why they should support it. They do not realize that in order to carry out our aims of promoting Bulawayo as an important tourist and business destination we need money. Small examples of our usefulness are the telephone and email enquiries we receive asking about accommodation and recently, the visit to the offices by 3 South African businessmen seeking clothing, leather factories and craft outlets to buy for their shops in Johannesburg. The address of the Association is in several overseas guide books and as a result recently visitors from United Kingdom came to the offices for assistance. Strangely enough locals, who phone the offices for telephone numbers not necessarily related to travel and tourism, have found the Association's numbers but not the ones they wanted. The Association is invited to workshops and conferences given by corporates and Parastatals as its importance in the city is recognized. Mr Gavin Stephens the Chairman of the Association's Executive Committee and Mrs Bell would be very happy to give you more detailed information about the Association's activities should you wish to have them.

AIR ZIMBABWE is now flying 5 times a week to Victoria Falls from Bulawayo. Flights between Bulawayo and Johannesburg will re-commence in March

On the note we would like to emphasize how grateful we are to our members and that we value your support tremendously. May your Christmas be a happy peaceful one and 2012 a year of new beginnings.

9) Gossip Column

http://www.kubatanablogs.net/kubatana/ ? p = 7445
Inspect your Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority bill
Kubatana subscribers have informed us of some fishy accounting on their bills, where ZESA is over stating the subtotal of a given unit charge multiplied by number of units. For example, on one customer's bill, the first 50 units is charged at 0.02 cents per unit which equals $1.00. The bill however states $1.20. The next 250 units is charged at 0.11 cents per unit which equals $27.50 - the bill states $28.00.

Together, those two mis-multiplied figures equal 70 cents - not a lot of money, but taken across thousands of customers each month, this could really add up.

Another subscriber reported similar mis-charging on the part of ZESA, with subtotals not adding up to the unit consumption multiplied by consumption rate, and also with the consumption not being charged at the correct rate.
According to the tariff schedule of 1 September, unit charges for domestic metered customers are:
* First 50 kWh: $0.02 per kWh
* 51-300 kWh: $0.11 per kWh
* 301+ kWh: $0.15 per kWh
Be informed. Inspect your ZESA bill carefully, and double check that they are charging you correctly. Query your bill when necessary, and insist on regular meter readings.

Well thankfully Jerome Gardner has documented those crazy days and now his book " Warm Heart Ugly Face" is available. The story of a traumatic decade of hyperinflation and its debilitating consequences for the people of Zimbabwe.
