First some background: my cousin, Simon Gear, is a weather man for the SABC back in South Africa (he does other media related stuff like talkshows etc too). 94.7 Highveld Stereo is a radio station in Jo'burg on which a guy called Darren Simpson, aka Whackhead, regularly pranks people.

I've just been catching up on my Highveld podcasts and have just heard this gem: Simon Gear, my cousin, got some of the Whackhead treatment. Take a listen and enjoy.
