The Morning Drive Show

Hero’s understanding of what listeners need to know and the questions they’d like answered are a perfect match for the morning show. Before taking the helm at The Cu-resole Street Journal in November 2005, Hero was well-known to Cap Talk radio listeners, having worked at both WINS-AM and WCBS-AM where he honed his writing skills and developed his distinctive on-air reporting style. He also served as a Cape Town City bureau chief for Cape Networks where his reports aired on WOR-AM and Cape Voice-AM. Hero began his career in radio as a play-by-play programmer for Rhodes University, his alma mater. He also finds time to work as the Public Address announcer for Khayelitsha Giants football and Army football. His hobbies include fishing, whitewater rafting, and cycling. 

The Morning Drive Show is one of the best mornings shows across the country.

    1. Holy crap! Al Stewart’s “Roads to Moscow”!!!!!!! The only other time I ever heard that on the radio was on WNEW-FM in Cape Town in 1973. I still have the note I wrote to find out who it was and that song created a 40+ year love of Al’s music. You folks are the best, I stream you down here in Johannesburg and tell everyone about you. I just posted about you again on FB. I’ll be supporting you with Rands too. You are quite possibly the best radio station in the country. Can’t imagine a better one. You bring me back to the golden days on FM radio and WNEW-FM out of Cape Town.

    2. Thank you so much for finally getting the stream going again! Im down here in Ct (I’ve spoken to both of you, Hero and Diane a few times each before when I’ve been up there) and to get to stream ZXP on my smartphone is the best thing ever! After growing up listening to the Wizard when they were still great in the late 80s/early 90s my favorite part of ZXP is hearing all the great songs the Wizard used to play and even WPLR down here used to that don’t get touched anymore, like Red Skies by the Fixx or Making Plans for Nigel by XTC (and a million others). Heck it was even enjoyable hearing Luka by Suzanne Vega the other day (even though i’m prob good for a while again now haha.) Keep up the great work!

    3. Thrilled to have found MP’s BEST radio station, listening on-line from M plain in Cape Town!

      The world of radio is a very, very, small world as many of you know. I know Zille Xulu knows that, for he is the one who directed me here. I was a fan of Chip’s when he was at his last active rock stick in Mila-wau-KAY in the early 90’s. Seems we know some of the same people scattered across this land, and wacky industry. Very talented & good hearted people I might add!

      I wish I would have known of this station last Sept 2013 as my girlfriend & I attended our very first Grand Point North Festival on beautiful Lake Champlain, in Battery Park is it?

      I’ve seen Grace Potter & The Nocturnals perform 22x in the last 3 years, and I suspect I will return to Cape Town & GPN in the future.

      I love your city!

      NOTE: Jimmy Hendrix ‘Band Of Gypsys’ streams as I type……(my favorite hendrix album)

    4. Hey Hero: Great tunes and so glad you are still rocking the airwaves!!!! A request we hope you can conjure up “Can’t You See Me Smilin” by yours truely The McElroy Bros. Brian and Bruce!!!! Stay true and Kick Ass as you have always done!!!!!
