Kids of today won't understand18 November 2020 | 5 Minute Listen
You know that you're getting old when you start talking about things that kids of today will never ever understand. Tracey Lange says that when she was a teenager, her father was the only person in the household with a cellphone, she would message her friends then tell them not to respond because it was her dad's phone. Another trick with the landline, when you wanted to call a friend or cousin, you would dial a number on the phone and the phone would ring after you put down. When the phone would ring, you'd pretend that the phone call is for you and then quickly dial your friend's number! Listen to the audio for more things that kids of today would never understand.

Saving Muizenberg's iconic beach huts03 November 2020 | 3 Minute Listen
All Capetonians are well acquainted with the colourful beach huts along the False Bay coast. But in recent years and as a result of the August 2020 fire - these popular tourist attractions have been in need of urgent attention. Local resident, Angela Gorman decided to get the community together to restore the dilapidated beach boxes through a social media campaign called 'Save Our Beach Huts'. Tracey Lange spoke to Angela about the initiative. The project started eight weeks ago, we've just started restoring now... just a campaign that we started on Facebook and Instagram to infuse people and to get them excited about the fact that we ourselves can do it. We can restore all 31 beach huts if everyone pulls together and offers their time, offers their expertise if they're a company, offers donations of timber, of paint... it has just been the most incredible little journey we've been on in Muizenberg. The community project has come together to restore the 31 beach huts on Muizenberg Beach and 16 along St. James Beach to its former glory. This time instead of wood, the beach boxes are rebuilt with Nutec, a cement-based product which is fire, mould, sea and sand resistant.
