Newshound Crystal Ordersen takes to the airwaves with her hit list
Every Sunday, a beloved Cape Town personality shares their favourite tracks from 80s and 90s for an hour during the weekend music show Just The Hits.
This coming Sunday Crystal Ordersen will be spinning her favourite retro tunes.
She hails from Mitchells Plain on the Cape Flats and cut her journalism teeth reporting on drug abuse and gangsterism in affected communities.
Then she spread her winds and reported from conflict zones in Arica for a decade, before returning home to work in a variety of local newsrooms.
Currently, Crystal is a duty editor at 24-hour news channel eNCA and also hosts Africa Report on 702.
Crystal catches up with John Maytham ahead of her Sunday music gig on CapeTalk.
It's great to talk to you John because I was an intern when you were a presenter at the public broadcaster many mons ago.Crystel Ordersen, Journalist
The 80s was quite turbulent, I grew up on the Cape Flats...but music was very important to my family. I think it was escapism. My dad bought us our first Whitney Houston album, I think at OK Bazaars at the time, believe it or not, they sold albums.Crystel Ordersen, Journalist
We grew up listening to The O'Jays and the 60s and 70s Motown music like Diana Ross.Crystel Ordersen, Journalist
This CapeTalk session...just allows you to step back and look at the music that shaped you.Crystel Ordersen, Journalist
