I’m running slightly behind schedule today, having done a million things before writing this blog post. And so I have only just noticed that it’s Day 567 of the South African lockdown. Cases are at an all time low (well, since Covid started, obviously; cases were much lower for all of 2018, for example, being about zero on average) and things are tentatively “ok” for the moment.
But the real question today is whether local old-person radio station Cape Talk made a big deal out of today. I wouldn’t know, because I’m not in their demographic. Far too young.
But 567 is their frequency and so it’s their day and so you’d expect some sort of fanfare.
Presumably they have someone at the station who looks out for this sort of thing.
To be honest, I haven’t listened to a Medium Wave station since I had no choice on the Isle of Man in 1986.
Tomorrow: much more excitement than I think I can possibly handle.
