On Saturday, KC listeners will be in for a treat when Selwyn Bartlett celebrates 40 years as a DJ. He remains a big hit with modern-day listeners after first getting people dancing at the former Tiffany’s night club in the 1980s. At the time, people came as far as Cape Town, Malmesbury, Laingsburg and even the West Coast to experience Selwyn’s music choices, mixing techniques and microphone chirps. “Tiffany's was the first major nightclub where I cut my teeth,” he tells us. Join Selwyn’s celebratory live-stream this Saturday at 17:00.
