The Hamman Time Heritage Tour
5FM’s NICK HAMMAN HEADS OUT ON A NATIONAL TOUR THIS HERITAGE MONTH
As South Africans prepare to celebrate Heritage Month this September, 5FM’s Nick Hamman of Hamman Time (Mondays-Fridays, 09:00 – 12:00) will take listeners on a true South African journey as he visits all nine provinces starting 1 September.
Presenter Nick Hamman has taken great pride and pleasure in exploring our country whenever given the opportunity. He walked to Polokwane for the station’s Small Town Live Loud event in April last year, traversed the Western Cape in preparation for the Cape Town Live Loud concert last September and featured the city of Durban for the show’s #Inside feature in March this year.
Now the show will take its listeners on a month-long excursion as Nick Hamman and producer “Mad Money Mike” travel through the nine provinces, spending at least two days in each, as they learn more about the vibrant heritage in the cities and small towns.
“The Hamman Time Heritage Tour is an exciting and relevant way to take the 5FM community on a countrywide journey without leaving their jobs and lectures,” says 5FM Station Manager, Justine Cullinan, “It’s a powerful way to further bring youthful South Africans together through the power of music which is our purpose as 5FM.”
Hamman Time will broadcast live every day of the tour and encourage listeners to promote their province by engaging with the show and sharing their stories. The tour is sure to deliver a unique experience as it takes a deeper look at the culture, history and sheer beauty South Africa has to offer. In conjunction with the live broadcasts, listeners can follow the tour on the station’s various social media platforms for interviews, video and images.
The Hamman Time Heritage Tour kicks off on 1 September as Nick and Mike head to North West Province to explore the Pilanesberg for their first pit stop. The duo then move on to Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Free State, Eastern Cape and Northern Cape before reaching the Western Cape just before Heritage Day.
