Power FM cel­e­brated its sec­ond birth­day at a low-key event at the ra­dio sta­tion’s of­fices in Houghton in the north­ern sub­urbs of Johannesburg.

At­tended by some Power FM staff and lis­ten­ers who called them­selves “emo­tional stake­hold­ers”, the event was a sim­ple break­fast at which guests were well fed while they waited for pro­ceed­ings to get un­der way.

Hav­ing ar­rived at the stip­u­lated time of 8am, pro­ceed­ings only started at 9.30am, when Power FM chair­per­son Given Mkhari went live on air, jok­ing be­fore do­ing so that: “I’ve fi­nally cracked get­ting on air on Power!”

He said the sta­tion’s jour­ney had been “af­firm­ing, in­spir­ing and re­as­sur­ing”.

The event was at­tended by new pro­gram­ming man­ager Lance Roth­schild, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor and Power Busi­ness host Andile Khu­malo, as well as hosts Masech­aba Lekalake, Jeremy Maggs and Lawrence Tl­ha­bane.
