We sit down with TV personality and Kaya FM Breakfast Show host Bob Mabena.
He grew up the youngest of threee children in a home with varied musical preferences, with Bob's oldest brother "being able to navigate from Roberta Flack to Queen with unflinching ease". He fell in love with radio after 1980 when his mother died and he moved to his uncle's home in Atteridgeville, where his uncle would listen to Bantu radio stations such as Radio Bop and Radio Setswana.
Bob went on to work for Radio Bop from 1989 before landing a career spot on Highveld 94.7. He has been in the radio industry for over 25 years but has also made sporadic television appearances.
