Re: Springbok Radio

There is one very curious character in South African radio who deserves some serious academic study. Michael McCabe was one of radio's most prolific writers and performers in the entire worldwide medium. He wrote most of the scripts for Suspense (they used the show name, but all of the scripts were original; McCabe's scripts were in their first Suspense series), SF68 (their sci-fi program), Beyond Midnight, The Avengers, and others. There is very little about him online. Here's one of the pages https://www.declassified.hiddentigerbooks.co.uk/radio_biogs_michael_mccabe.htm -- most all of the pages have the same limited information.

You can stream many of the programs today https://www.radio-south-africa.co.za/springbok-radio
