A Piece of Nostalgia by Phil Morris
Rhodesia Broadcasting Corporation

"6:30 Get up, up, up, up, up ..."

His was the wakeup 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 metre 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 etc.
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 favourite day was Saturday for all the great hit music generally got played. Ian Warren had a show at 9 am playing new songs that were potential hits. Everyone's favourite 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. Geoffrey Atkins was more of a TV personality but I'm sure he did some radio work to start with. It is thought he's now living in Australia.

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 Mervyn 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.
Mervyn Hamilton was Father of our C16 James. Mervyn started commentating on Polo with SABC, then Rugby and did the first overseas Springbok English commentary translated from Afrikaans live whilst sitting in the Joburg studio. Mervyn was best known in this country for his commentating on the horse racing at Borrowdale and reading the news, interviews, cricket and ceremonial government occasions.

My favourite was "Forces Requests" with Sally Donaldson on Saturday afternoon. Sally was a beautiful young woman with a voice to match. She played all the forces favourites 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.

My own recollection of meeting Leslie Sullivan back in the day was at the Show Grounds which is where they held the Agricultural Shows in Salisbury whilst I was still at Gwebi. You will remember that the Fertilizer companies always had a bar at the back of their stand and this facility attracted Gwebi Students like bees to a honey pot because they handed out beers absolutely free. What Leslie Sullivan was doing there remains a mystery because he was as far away from agriculture as you can get. A group of us students, who had been there since dusk, got into a conversation with Leslie who, by eleven o'clock that night, was talking in what sounded to me like Mongolian. We also must have been talking in tongues because we seemed to get on famously. In a moment of lucidity he said he couldn't stay too late because he had to report for work at Pocket's Hill well before six in the morning. This reminded some of us that we were on dairy duty the next morning, also at six, and not wanting to be put on jankers by Jack for being late, said our goodbyes and scuttled back to the College, leaving Leslie well ensconced with several beers lined up in front of him.
The consensus of opinion as we drove back to the College was that there was no ways that Leslie could possibly be on time, much less host his early morning radio show which was by now only a few hours away - he was just too far gone. Never-the-less one of us, bleary-eyed and hung over, turned on the radio when we were woken for dairy duty early that morning and there was Leslie on air, as chirpy and cheerful as ever, without a single suggestion of Mongolian in his cheeky chatter.

Starting in 1848, the third instalment of the lavish drama depicts a turbulent and uncertain time for both Europe and the monarchy. With revolutions on the continent and the Chartist movement reaching its peak in London, Victoria is under pressure from the government to leave London for her own safety.
Coleman and Tom Hughes are perfectly cast as the royal couple and there's good fun in the addition of Lord Palmerston... But best of all is how it makes history feel like it's happening now. [Metro]

It's a full-blown costume spectacle, interwoven with romantic and political intrigues. [Daily Mail]
Admission: $20.00 [free to Film members]

FRIDAY 24 JANUARY AT 7.00 P.M. ROSSINI: L'ITALIANA IN ALGERI [provisional and postponed from 17 January]
A muezzin calls the faithful to prayer. Elvira fails to arouse Mustafa's desires while an animated ballet about an amorous camel cavorts in the picture frame above their marital bed. When her belly-dancing flops, the dejected Elvira stuffs her face with Turkish delight. This is only the overture, but it's already clear that Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier are going to have a lot of fun with L'Italiana in Algeri. And why not Rossini's operatic farce is gloriously silly. Packed with zinging tunes, it's a gift to the talented cast at the Salzburg Festival, headed by the great Cecilia Bartoli.
Superstar mezzo Cecilia Bartoli beguiles her way through "L'Italiana in Algeri". She looks and sounds wonderful as Isabella, relishing both the languorous lines and coloratura of the role. [Opera Now]
Nowadays Bartoli is a consummate comedienne whose work looks especially well on film. As for her singing, one would be hard-pressed to find a better-sung Isabella in a production of this much-revived opera that's as good as any of us is ever likely to see. [Gramophone]
Admission: $20.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

Denis Norman 1932-2019

Denis Norman's passing has closed a chapter in the recent history of this country. His career has been well documented most especially in his book 'The Odd Man In.' He was part of a new wave of commercial farming leadership at a time when it was essential for the survival of commercial agriculture that all the old shibboleths of the Rhodesian Front were swept away. His influence on the political and agricultural life was immense during the time of his public service. His original appointment stabilized the commercial farming sector and his next great achievement was convincing the Government of the need for a pricing policy that took into account the small-scale farmers. Both Ministries he ran at different times were well run, fit for purpose and his Ministerial appointments meant that competent people ran the parastatals under his purview. He represented this country abroad wisely and well. In the meantime, his interventions of behalf of any number of potential miscarriages of justice, while unsung at the time, meant a great deal to those involved. His jovial extrovert character meant that he was well suited to lead the farming community first of all into the new era and then to shoulder the burden of Ministerial Office. His ability to pursue issues that at the time looked insurmountable was legendary.

Although at times it may have been very depressing and stressful, he always gave the impression of enjoying the job. All the while his wife June was his rock and the most essential part of Team Norman. They were able to have a wonderful life together with their loving family. Capensis, the family home, was a grand venue for family celebrations and they were active and contributing members of the Norton community much loved by us all. By the time he left office in 1997 preparations were being made for the issuance of Acquisition orders by the Ministry of Lands and by November of that year a flurry of Acquisitions of Land orders were gazetted and by 2000 the land grab was under way. Denis Norman's family were not exempt and ultimately his son-in-law and daughter were forced off their farm as was his son. The end of the dream was in sight and ultimately, he and June left for England in 2002. As a man of great integrity, he made no attempt at special pleading for his family and quietly made a new life with June in England. He is greatly mourned by his many friends here and by those in the diaspora and fondly remembered by those who had the honour of working with him during the exciting and challenging years of early independence of this country. All our sympathy and love go out to June, Kathy, Diana, Deborah and Howard and their families.

Jim Sinclair
Past President, Commercial Farmers' Union.

With the passing of Denis Norman, we lost an incredible person who did so much for this country, both as a past CFU President and Minister in the new Government of Zimbabwe. It was therefore fitting that we asked past CFU President Jim Sinclair to prepare the above, for which we thank him sincerely for his wise words. Jim was on CFU Council when Denis was President and followed as President shortly after Denis resigned following his appointment as Minister of Agriculture. Although David Spain took over from Denis, he was tragically killed in a car accident in Mwenezi, so Jim took his place. Denis took over as Minister of Agriculture at a difficult period when the country was recovering from the effects of a bitter civil war during which farmers were often in the front line and suffered badly.

So, a fair bit of Denis's time was spent reconciling the farmers and rebuilding agriculture from the ruins. Through his leadership farmers regained their confidence and the agricultural industry saw its greatest growth period in its history. He also managed to rebuild the trust between the new government and farmers during the difficult dissident period shortly after Independence.

He has set an incredible example for both the older, and particularly the younger generation to follow. In his book, which Jim refers to above, it showed how he started from nothing and succeeded in setting himself up as a successful farmer and businessman. He will be missed but most certainly never forgotten. It has been encouraging to read some of the many recent condolence messages to him recently, particularly the one from President Mnangagwa, as all of them show the greatest respect which is still held of this great Zimbabwean farmer. Our most sincere condolences to his family and may his dear soul now rest in peace.

Andrew Pascoe
President, Commercial Farmers' Union.
