And the nerves set in!

The Masakhane Radio show poster
I must admit, with the recent Easter weekend and all the public holidays that have taken place lately, there has been very little activity taking place regarding the Masakana show. Especially as both Umthathi and the Radio Grahamstown team members have been on holiday over the past ten days.
However, the past break has probably been a blessing in disguise, it has given us a chance to breathe deeply and think about the week ahead. My feelings as of now are those of slight nerves and anxiety. The time that is left leading up to our first show seems to be melting through my fingers, and there is still so much to be done!
The week ahead will be, to say the least, jammed packed with organising and putting the show together. I almost can’t believe that we have reached that stage already, especially after the past few months of tedious yet intriguing planning. However it really is starting to get quite exciting! Our advertising is in full swing with the posters and pamphlets being printed as I type. Our mock broadcast takes place on Thursday and then it’s all systems go with our very first show taking place at 11am on Friday. So make sure you tune into Radio G 102.1fm!
Make sure to check out my next blog entry to hear how the show has gone :)

Here's a sneak preview of the show: The advert which has been playing throughout the week leading up to the show...
