The Mark Pilgrim Show in a new timelsot

If you're over 35 and you haven't started listening to the radio station Hot919 yet, you're missing out! We play all your favs from the 70s to the 90s and the jocks are all veterans in the industry, most of us with the legacy of working together at the old 5FM back in the 90s.


Even if you're not in Johannesburg North, (the footprint of the station on 91.9FM), we're on streaming audio (TuneIn app on your phone) and also channel 922 on DStv (if you still have satellite TV!).

Since the station opened at the end of 2014, my show has been Saturdays 12-3pm, but just to let you know it moved earlier 9am - 12pm as of last weekend! The legendary Kevin Savage (with his Classic Countdown) and I have swopped time slots to better accommodate the generous sponsors that make our respective shows possible!

This is now what happens on The Mark Pilgrim Show 9am - 12pm (besides all the great 80s and 90s hits!):

9am - 10am: This hour is brought to you by Kia Fourways

Kia Fourways are the proud vehicle sponsor of the show.

9.30am: Anagram Game

This is a word game I have been doing for years on my shows, from 5FM to Highveld, and now on Hot91.9fm. I give you a word and you have to find the other word in it using all the same letters, based on a clue I give you.  It's a fun and challenging few minutes on air!

10.10am: Movie Moment with Black Sheep Films

Black Sheep Films are one of South Africa's big movie distributors to Ster Kinekor and Nu Metro.  When they have a blockbuster release, we feature the movie and give away great prizes!

10.30am : Unofficial Holidays brought to you by Vespa

Vespa, the unofficial mode of transport for mavericks bring you the list of all the days we celebrate and commemorate over the following 7 day period. This includes serious days such as World Tuberculosis Day and also more humorous ones like World Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day. 

11.10am Kia Hot Hit brought to you by Kia Motors SA

This is a feature where we play a Hot Hit themed around a campaign or event that Kia SA is promoting, with one lucky listener getting R1500 in cash!

So there you have it. Hope you get to lock on this Saturday!

In a few weeks it will hopefully also be on TuneIn Radio, followed by DStv.
