We remember legendary South African 80s band Cinema

The mention of the band Cinema stirs up memories of the 80's and 90's – venues such as Gold Reef City, The Village Green, The Thunderdome, Limelight, Chillers and rock concerts and festivals all around the country. Cinema became a household name during this time thanks to their debut hit single, “My Kind of Girl”. The band went on to release seven albums in total and achieved 12 Top 10 radio singles and numerous awards.

Cinema is the definitive band of South African 80’s and 90’s popular music. It consisted of Jarrod Aston on vocals, Mike Todd on guitar, Chris Frank on keyboards and bass and Larry Rose on drums.

East Coast Gold's Dave Guselli chats to Jarrod Aston about the band's heyday; how they almost landed a major international contract and whether there are any plans for a Cinema reunion.

We remember 80s Durban band Equinox

Who remembers top Durban band from the 1980s, Equinox? The band consisted of Gerry Connor on lead vocals, John 'Jordi' Jordan on keyboards and backing vocals, Peter 'The Greek' on guitar/bass and backing vocals - and Francois Hardy on drums and backing vocals. Equinox performed at the Royal Hotel (in the Tavern) for three years (five nights a week), then recorded their original album 'Undercover Lover' with David Gresham Records in Johannesburg. This led to them touring around South Africa performing at big concerts before returning to Durban to perform at the Gangplank at The Wheel for a year.

East Coast Gold caught up with Francois Hardy for an update on what's happened since then. Listen here.

'It's like a sadistic, mechanical beast' - COVID-19 survivor tells Gordon

East Coast Gold’s Gordon Graham had the privilege of speaking to Shane Manning - a British businessman living and working in Dubai. He is an Ironman triathlete, fit and strong and now he is a COVID-19 survivor.
Shane was misdiagnosed when experiencing his early Coronavirus symptoms which led to him going on a camping trip with family and friends once he felt better, only to discover later – much to his horror - that he’d been COVID-19 positive all along.
Shane shared with us his worries over who he may’ve passed the virus on to; his concerns for his family; his healthcare experience; the dark depths he dealt with while fighting for his life – and, more recently, his recovery.
