    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!
