An Hour with Charlene le Roux

Traffic presenter by day, actress some of the time and DJ this weekend - join Charlene le Roux on a musical journey.

When something goes wrong on Cape Town's roads, you are most likely to hear it from Charlene le Roux.

Charlene has been keeping CapeTalkers up to date with traffic conditions for over a decade. But there is something else she enjoys, music.

This weekend Charlene will take over the playlist for an hour of her favourite hits from the 80s and 90s.

You probably also recognise her from her role in Suidooster on Kyknet as Nina Richter or from one of the other productions she has appeared in, like Krotoa.

Expect a bumper edition of tracks to get you moving on Sunday from 10 am, although Charlene's not keen to give her musical taste game away just yet.

She does say that her style has mellowed though.

It's a mixed bag! Right now it's a lot of old school music, but in my younger teenage years I was very into rock - Bon Jovi and Depeche Mode...

Charlene le Roux, EWN traffic reporter and actress

Putting together the playlist was quite stressful - where do I start and which ones do I take as my favourites? Which songs are memories that you can latch on to particular songs?

There will be some songs that I belt out when I'm feeling quite emotional!

Girl bands from the 80s and 90s will also feature on An Hour With Charlene le Roux.
