Sad to hear, No Escape was really cool at the time. Very versatile actor.

Sad news indeed, I used to listen to his morning show on Radio 5 many moons ago. Can't quite recall if he was also on Highveld Stereo, possibly. Think he did a stint on LM Radio as well, and of course on 702. I was never a fan of the Talk Radio show that 702 transformed into so never gave it a listen.

What a loss, the boytjie from Klerksdorp, where, in his own words, he stated: "Tommy Stevens, Principal of Milner High School told me I would never get anywhere". Well, he did - Humba Kahle, John Berks.

Just found out about this - he was one of the quiet ones but integral to the success of the band in the beginning.
AJS played played on the band’s first five albums, including hits like “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “Wanted Dead or Alive”

I just noticed, as many of you may already have done, that @croak post count is about to be exceeded by our @chrisc as he is ±202 posts behind.
So I thought it may be relevant to raise a glass to our dear departed forum friends in appreciation of all their contributions to the forum and individual members that knew them and benefitted from their knowledge, service, and friendship. Cheers to each and every one of our departed friends. 🍻

I wish I had the expertise, knowledge and experience of Guillaime Lemaire (croak) who left us so suddenly last year
As well as being a fountain of knowledge, nothing was too much trouble for him to take time out and deal with a readers problem, however simple or involved it would be
He was kindness itself in sharing information
And is always missed

Folks, it is with deep sadness that I have to announce that our very own Johan Potgieter (Ampdog) passed away this morning just after 4:00 after a brief period of hospitalisation.

Our sincerest condolences to his friends and family.

Like Abe... Another Legend is lost....
