Blogger–walker–mapper, Lauren-Kate Bydawell reveals what Melville looks like from a pair of hi-tops.

Curator-artists, Andrea Rolfes and Ann-Marie Tully, hint at what art looks like from an old French salon’s perspective (pop-up of course), right in Melville with big name artists.

If you find Charmaine Meintjies delightful here’s where you’re even more delighted by Vinette Ebrahim (with the fraught Ellen Pakkies as another of her characters).

And if you’re gardening-glum this time of year, let Shahn Irwin lift your green spirits very practically.

From the studio-shop of a leading fashion designer in Melville, we headed back to the Saturday afternoon market, basked a bit and spoke to the person in charge of all the fun.

Are South Africans free? Listen to our chat with Melville author and political academic, Lawrence Hamilton about his book of the same name. We ponder the question concerning another free market, The Market @ The Park, something very new and good for Saturday picnics and PMs every week.

We’re back with William Gaul from the Joburg Heritage Foundation and who’s our special Melville historian. William takes us back through the giggles and incidents of slightly-yore.

Xtreme it is and so is Louie Greeff, TV and bookman, who can’t resist ultimate life challengers. He’s preparing for his swim-journey all the way down the Zambezi, among the crocs, rapids, hippos and Zambezi sharks. This adventure will be flighted all over the world. You can still be part of it, as a sponsor: www.beyondxtreme.co.za

As it that’s not enough, we have a mystery of a missing section of Cullinan diamond (The Other Half by Eldie Bongers) and a book-theory about resources, a controversy, no matter which side you face. (Cornucopia by Eldie Bongers). So far both books are from Amazon.

Poets also have their human side and Alan Finlay shows us his. Our ‘gay pastor with the beautiful eyes’ shows us his too. Philip Liebenberg, like Alan, has published fascinating material too, just different!
