Dotcommie Essays By William Bowles – Yfm Radio, Johannesburg South Africa 1999-2000
These essays were written whilst I worked at the youth radio station Yfm, developing the Website for the station (the site that exists now has no relationship to the site we built back 2000. Here’s a sample of the section I’m most proud of initiating that I thankfully saved, Rapactivity, the online incarnation of the live show Rap Activity Jam. The content was put together by the two young guys, Madala and Khoi who hosted the show). Yfm was a revolution for Black South African youth radio. It built its reputation by promoting the Soweto music style Kwaito.
