Tutankhamun – His Tomb and the Treasures has meticulously reconstructed the famous tomb and the golden artifacts found by Howard Carter in November 1922, with the help of Cairo craftspeople who built more than a thousand exact replicas over five years.

AllAfrica’s Juanita Williams and Bush Radio’s Shadreck Setti interviewed Dr Tarek El Awady, described as a “walking encyclopaedia” on ancient Egypt, about one of the most famous pharaohs, and seeing the “wonderful things” Carter spoke of, at the exhibition at Grandwest in Cape Town.

Bikers are born, not hatched

With Mother’s Day come and gone the Biker Show decided to have a special show in honour of mothers, on the 9 May 2015.

There was a mix of guest; bikers, those mom’s who had not yet braved two wheels, those not too keen to try and some of the presenters’ moms all of which made for an interesting show.

First order of business was the meet and greet between the moms, they were instructed to share stories about how they became mothers in biking and attempted to rub off their love of biking onto the mothers who had not been on a bike.

As mothers usually have a lot to say about everything, the minute they were told that they should be getting ready to go in studio, the silence in the room was deafening as the nerves crept in.

Once they gathered themselves, they were ready for the topics of the day “have you been on a bike?” Of course the biker mama’s were raving about what joy and freedom riding a bike provides. Then came the non-biker mama’s, the answers varied from one mom to the other.

Wilma de Klerk aka Wilma loves Biking, who recently became a mom rides an R1 Yamaha and said that it made her a better biker realising that as she rides she wants to come back to her child.

Kaylen Butler says that the preconceived notion of bikers as dangerous, reckless is not true. As she met bikers and found that they were the loveliest bunch of people. It’s just the bike that is a problem for her.

During the Biker Safety hour sponsored by Biker Basics, Lloyd Castle and regular guest on the show Officer Igshaan Dyson put the moms through their paces. The task was to convince the moms that biking can be and is safe.

Samantha Lamprecht, who has been in biking since she was in diapers, rides a Suzuki and commented on the issue of safety with regards to wearing the correct gear. “Whether you fall at 20 or 120, you are going to get eina”.

A big thank you to all the moms who came through and enjoyed our photo-booth, gifts and eats. You really are special to us at the Mother of Community Radio – Bush Radio.
