THE SUITCASE SHOW feat Piet Botha, Valiant Swart, Anton Goosen, David Kramer, Akkedis, Beeskraal

Every vagabond needs a suitcase.

This is a, mainly South African, mostly Afrikaans, series of shows with some well-known tjoons and many obscure ones.

Some happy songs, some angry songs, a few light songs, and quite a few dark ones.

“Die geraamtes in jou kas sal ewig kriewel”

The name of this show is inspired by the song “Suitcase Vol Winter” by South African Music Legend Piet Botha

Some lyrics are explicit and/or offensive.

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.
