BakGat Radio SCHEDULE GMT+2

From Rock 2 Maskande 2 Metal 2 Kwaito 2 Jazz 2 R&B 2 Afrikaans Pop 2 Hip Hop 2 Gospel 2 Blues 2 Classical… and a little SPORT jukebox_e0.gif

BakGat Radio is a place where all genres of South African music come together. It is a platform that celebrates home grown talent and it celebrates the diverse nature of our wonderful country. We like to reflect this diversity in the time slots where we play our SA Rotation. We recognise that not everyone has an eclectic taste in music, and therefore the schedule contains both genre specific shows and time slots. We also splay our "BakGat Playlist" - a selection of new and classic tracks handpicked for your pleasure - on a regular basis throughout each day.

Once you’ve loaded our link onto your website, (or if you have any questions) please send an e-mail to richard@plumproductions.co.za with details about where we can find our link on your website, and your own graphic & hyperlink, and we’ll add it to this links page.

ADVERTISING

 

Advertising does not have to cost a fortune to be effective and give you amazing returns. By advertising on BakGat Radio you know that you will reach your desired audience – lovers of South African music. Our systems allow you to set & control your budget. With a minimum deposit of only R150.00, you can start your online advertising within 48 hours!

The online platform is the fastest and most effective marketing medium to reach a wide group of potential customers. An eye-catching banner is worth a thousand words, especially when the user can click on the banner and land on your website. Think of our banner ads as billboard advertisements, except that instead of being shown on the side of the road or on a moving bus, it is shown on the BakGat Radio player, both on the website and on the mobile Apps. The end result is exposing your product in a cost effective way to a targeted demographic.

At BakGat Radio we provide you with a variety of different cost metrics to choose from, making the payment structure flexible because we know that each advertiser has unique goals and different budgets. We charge per 1,000 Impressions (CPM) for our banner ads and there is no additional cost for any clicks – we wish you as many clicks as possible at no charge.

All banner ads show for a full 60 seconds each time they appear - meaning each "impression" is one minute long!

Performance reports from our streaming service are available for advertisers.

BEATS BY DUB DEMAND

Gavan Eckhard guides you through the South African Reggae scene... bringing you the standard favourites but also guiding you through the underground scene, playing unreleased bands and interviewing up-and-coming artists.


 

DIRTY ROCK TUESDAYS

From the only mildly tainted to the fetid and so filthy it should be burned in an open field – Dirty Rock Tuesdays features all the very best of SA rock music from way back in time to right now. Gig guides, band updates and some wack-job news stories from around the world, along with a whole heap of Dirty Laundry thrown in just for fun.

Catch Darren the Dictator and Mary-Anne the Subjugated Wench, (who loyally sits at his side and soaks up the abuse because she’s such a nice person,) as they present their highly entertaining, fresh and sparkly, South African Rock/Chat show.

TAKE NOTE 

Richard & Felix play diverse genres of music from the last five decades, including golden favourites and brand new unreleased tracks. They interview artists, and chat about everything from corruption to butterflies, and share their combined wisdom... if they can remember it!

ADULT CONTENT


JAZZ - E

Etienne Shardlows’ passion for African music started when he was rocked to sleep to the sounds of Letta Mbulu as a baby. Almost 36 years later he started hosting his first weekly radio show. Radio allows him to share his passion for music, especially jazz.

Etienne is also a stand-up comedian, regularly working the Johannesburg comedy circuit. He has a day job in IT to keep him unbalanced.


JUST MICHAEL

One of South Africa’s foremost sports broadcasters, Michael was initially employed as a radio cricket commentator. His reputation and commitment to excellence grew rapidly and he soon became involved in covering all major sporting events in just about every sporting code.

He is also an accomplished mentalist, and incorporates his amazing mental skills in this show.


OFF DA CUFF

Blaque & Dineo are fun and play all genres of music in-between “real” commentary on living in South African today. Listen in for a different take on what's happening behind the latest news.


ON THE ROAD AGAIN

The legendary Billy Forrest has been a fixture in South African country music since 1960. He has had a successful award winning solo career, and recorded hits with the groups; The Giants, The Dream Merchants and the Over the Hillbillies.

South Africa's “King Of Country”, Bobby Angel started his career as a jazz and swing singer, recording his first record in 1960. In 1974, a country song entitled, You Ask Me To was the turning point in his career and established him as a household name in South Africa. It spent two weeks at #1 and was the first of many, many chart hits. Bobby pioneered Country music on television, hosting a show called Gentle On My Mind for SABC.

They both continue to perform Country Music at venues throughout South Africa


SONDER SOKKIES

Whether you’re in Brisbane, Benoni, Bel Air or Bellville, everyone knows that nothing beats kicking off your shoes to some tunes (or “choons”, as we like to tune it) that make you think of home. Join Christine on Mondays from 6-7pm Bakgat time for “Sonder Sokkies”. If you’re not a Saffer – it literally means “no socks”, but here at Bakgat, Sonder Sokkies is a mindset. No age limits, no genre limits, no era limits, just an hour of kicking back to the best Afrikaans music, as we bring you everything from the Briels to Bles to all the Bothas to Bittereinder - wherever you are in the world.
