Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including www.rock.co.za which he founded in 1999.

  1. Hi Brian,

    I’m a filmmaker living in Perth Western Australia currently writing a feature film set in 1967. It’s primarily set in Vietnam and includes a character (18yo male) who grew up in rural South Africa as the son of a doctor (and anthropologist mother). I’m wanting to get a sense of the pop music scene in South Africa at that time including how young people would have known about what was happening around the world musically. Did radio stations broadcast out to the rural regions? What about records and record player – did young people have them? How did apartheid effect the pop culture scene? How often would bands have visited South Africa?

    I’d so appreciate you getting in touch with me as you clearly know more than the average person about this time and place…and you’re passionate about it too.

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

    Warm regards, Linda

    PS The Gonks sound interesting!
