Breakfast on the banks of the Zambezi, Society Page, Movie Review and more



Breakfast on the banks of the Zambezi!

This May East Coast Radio will be broadcasting live from the Victoria Falls in Zambia, as part of the African Renaissance Festival. The 14th annual African Renaissance Festival is being held in Durban this week and aims to connect Africa to secure the continent’s future. 

As part of the celebration East Coast Radio presenter Darren Maule will be strengthening ties beyond our borders when he broadcasts live from the Royal Livingstone Hotel in Zambia on the 24th and 25th of May. Darren and the Breakfast Stack producer George Thorne will connect with another part of Africa by sampling some of the local cuisine, soaking up the culture and relishing in new experiences. Amongst other things they will mingle with the locals, experience an elephant back safari and get to witness Victoria Falls in all its glory.

The people of Zambia have been warned; Darren will no doubt also get up to his usual mischief and has packed his unique sense humour in with the rest of his luggage. Listen out to the Breakfast Stack between 06h00 and 09h00 on Thursday and Friday this week to hear more about their Zambian adventure!

Movie Review - The Avengers


Popped over to Ster Kinekor Gateway to view this movie.   Based on the Comic Book series
from Marvel Comics this features a team of superheroes who band together to fight 
a bigger evil that none of them can handle on their own.  However together they form
a formidable team.  What a team it is.   We have Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) 
The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans),
Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) together they have to 
fight the evil Loki (Tom Hiddleston).  Along the way you will find many characters that have popped up in other Marvel movies.  Look out for a great cameo by the legendary actor Harry Dean Stanton.  The team are led by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).  Can they defeat the evil Loki?
To find that out you will have to see the movie.  There are some wonderful special effects in this movie and one can see why it is still sitting on top at the box office.

Rating 10/10
