Coming Up Today with John Perlman 16 May 2013
The J Arthur Brown sentence has incensed many in the country, throwing questions of doubt at our criminal justice system. Tonight John Perlman looks at this matter very closely but asks a broader question: White Collar Crime: are we doing enough in the country to fight this scourge. Tune in from 18h00 to 19h00 and share your thoughts.
The Dreamfields Initiative
The aim of the Dreamfields Project is to grow dreams through soccer in our primary schools by providing soccer kits, organizing weekly soccer leagues and upgrading fields. Dreamfields was launched in October 2007, with the support of our founding sponsor BHP Billiton.
Grow Soccer Dreams at Your Old Primary
Dreamfields and Kaya FM believe that we can build better schools through sport, and stronger communities through better schools. Why not boost your old school and change dozens of young lives with a DreamBag? It’s packed full with kit, boots and balls for 15 players – most important, it’s packed full of dreams. www.dreamfieldsproject.org

About John Perlman
Q & A:
What would you be doing with your life if there was no radio? Having the same kinds of debates over coffee, around the dinner table, in the street.
Who or what do you think about during your show? Are we pushing what we know about this issue in new and interesting directions?
What’s the size of your shoe and what do you think that says about you? I wear a size six. Small feet, big heart.
What’s your favourite food and do you believe you are what you eat? Fish and chicken and I am what I eat. I love to swim and I’m always trying to fly.
Are you superstitious and do you mind sharing? I can be. I’m always very careful not to kill insects, especially spiders.
If love is blind, do you believe marriage is an eye opener or the blind leading the blind, explain? Maybe it’s my age, but I’m finding that love is an eyes-wide-open adventure – wonderful.
1987 and 1998
I was involved in all aspects of journalism including print, radio and television and soccer commentating. Then in 1998 I took a full time job at SAfm as the morning radio announcer which I did for the next 9 years.
I left SAfm, and so after more than 20 years in journalism he was free to pursue my dream in the social sector.
In May of 2007
I had my first breakthrough when the mining group BHP Billiton donated R6,5-million to the social project and so the Dreamfields Project was born.
In June 2007, I joined Kaya FM where I present the Today show.
