in your ear

So, how widely do you read about radio? More importantly, how well do you listen to your favourite radio station. Try this quiz and find out.

1 This is the country’s most listened to station with 6,7-million listeners:

a Metro FM q b Ukhozi FM q c Safmq

2 And this is the country’s largest regional station with one million listeners:

4 And now for the egos (sorry, personalities): Which of these is not a breakfast DJ? a Chomane Chomaneq b Mark Gillman q c Glen Lewisq

5 This classical music maestro recently made a move from Safm to Classic FM: a Mike Mills q b Rodney Trudgeonq c Jeremy Mansfieldq
