(Frank Graham)

Frank Graham presents two performances of his highly popular show, The Golden Days Of Springbok Radio, in association with Rhumbelow Theatre at the Allan Wilson Shellhole in Pietermaritzburg on April 24.

Those were the days of Inspector Carr, Henry Simon of the Missing Persons Bureau, of Doctor Paul and Mary Livingston, MD. They were the days of No 1 and No 2, Sir Gregory Pitkin, Mildred Murfin and Humbert and Lolita Snetherswaite; the days of Able Seaman Johnson, Percy Snodgrass and Kenneth Wibley.

From 1968 on, the vast majority of comedies was recorded in Durban, many of them in front of “live” audiences.

Spend a nostalgic couple of hours with one of South Africa’s most versatile character actors and comedians as he re-invokes those memories with his hugely popular brand of humour.

Performances take place on April 24 at 14h00 and 18h30. (Venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner). Tickets R140 (R120 for pensioners and tables of 8 or more). Bring food picnic baskets. Bar Available (no alcohol may not be brought on to the premises) and there is limited secure parking.

Booking is essential through Computicket or contact Roland on 082 499 8636 or email or visit

The Allan Wilson Shellhole is situated at 5 Durban Road in Pietermaritzburg.
