Returning to the Mother City to join the DJ line-up on Heart FM, he then made the move to Johannesburg to become part of the 5FM team, where he has been for the last few years. He recently made the move back home to continue presenting his weekday show from 5FM’s Cape Town studios. We asked him what he loves about the city.

Don’t be fooled by this great-grandmother enjoying the winter sunshine and quietly knitting – she jumped out of an aeroplane when she was 96, loves taking road trips to Fish Hoek and plays croquet three times a week. Age is clearly no match for Georgina Harwood. I could call her feisty and sprightly, but that would be an insult. She may see herself as a very ordinary woman, but spend a few hours in her company, and you will be bowled over by her.
