ROGER GOODE VS DJ ANKLETAP

Head to head at Bus Stop Barber!

Q&A with radio’s finest

Whaddup! So, did you notice that coolest kids on campus all have fresh cuts? If you were anywhere near Wits last week, you would have witnessed us adding #EvenMoreFlavour to the streets of Jozi with the Flying Fish Bus Stop Barber.

A truly cutting-edge pop-up playground, the Flying Fish Bus Stop Barber attracted Jozi’s coolest kids and we don’t wanna name drop, but – who are we kidding? Of course, we do! Moozlie, DJ Switch, Katleho Sinivasan and Instagram OG Uncle Scrooch were there… And that’s not even mentioning the other peeps who dropped by as the event was heating up.

 

When 5FM’s Roger Goode and YFM’s DJ Ankletap showed up we just knew we had to put them head to head for a 60-second quick-fire Q&A. With a shared lack of LOLs and Lotto millions, here’s what we found out:

 

Do you “LOL” or “haha”?

Roger Goode: Haha.

DJ Ankletap: I “hahaha” – I don’t “LOL” or “brb” ever. I still use the old colon-dash smiley face.

What’s the best piece of advice you ever received?

Roger Goode: Ooh, that’s a good one. I remember when I was a teenager, I lived with my uncle for a while and he gave me this long piece of advice – it was to do with sex. He said it’s okay if you wanna do adult stuff, but then you need to accept the consequences of adult behaviour. Basically, if you wanna be an adult and have adult fun, then deal with things the way an adult would.

DJ Ankletap: My very first programme manager said to me: “A radio show is a radio show; it doesn’t matter what time of the day it is. Own whatever space they put you in and don’t complain that you’re not prime time. No radio show is more important than the other, some just make more money.”

What’s the first thing you do in the morning?

Roger Goode: Coffee. I drink an unhealthy amount of coffee. Then I try to work out where I am. What day it is. What year it is. Actually, I climb back into bed because I’ve been kicked out of bed by my dogs, April and May. They’re like the landladies and I’m the tenant. I’m lucky to be there.

DJ Ankletap: I put my pillow over my head and scream as loud as I can because when you do a show at a time like mine, my alarm is going off at 04h15, so I snooze and scream until 04h30.

Who is the last person you texted?

Roger Goode: My granny to say that I was finally going to get a haircut because she can’t stand my hair. She said to me: “You’re too young to look like a rabbi.”

DJ Ankletap: My tech producer to tell him which sound clips I wanted for the show.

What’s the one song guaranteed to get you on the dancefloor?

Roger Goode: Anything from Diplo.

DJ Ankletap: To get everybody on the dancefloor, I hate to admit it, but “Whip/Nae Nae”.

If you were an animated character, who would you be?

Roger Goode: “Ooh, hello kids!” The Devil from Cow and Chicken.

DJ Ankletap: Definitely have to say Cartman from South Park.

What’s the first thing you’d buy if you won the Lotto?

Roger Goode: How much we talking? A trip to outer space would be fun. But with the SA Lotto you can’t even buy a nice house.

DJ Ankletap: I’d start my own political party with the aim to just get into parliament so that I can sit next to Julius and get rowdy.
