THE MEN (AND WOMAN) BEHIND “THE MEN”
by Keith Millar

So, you thought that the Men From The Ministry were showing a few signs of wear and tear. Well, you ain’t seen noth­ing yet. Seen at the first recording of the new series of this popular radio show for Radio South Africa (1993/5) was this group, who have been responsible for getting the vast majori­ty of ‘Men’ recordings onto tape (and that’s not red tape). Let’s intro­duce the team, who admit that they are no longer quite the youths they were when first involved with “Men”.

The Technical Team

Standing, from the left is Ian Kinnear, the baby of the group in terms of involvement with the “Men”. Ian first worked on the programme some 9 years ago, and is handling the sound effects for the new series.

Next is Keith Millar whose association dates back to the early 1970’s.

Phyl Stander who recently completed 35 years service with the SABC has been involved since the inception of the programme. She has recorded more of these productions than any­one else.

Jannie Cilliers, better known as cartoonist Lencil and as editor of Stag magazine, was very much involved in the early Springbok Radio days of the show.

Sitting (left) is Robin who first attended the show as a schoolboy, and later became an integral part of the technical team at recordings.

Last is Oliver Hart. He was there for the first recordings of "Men" in our studios and is still there recording the new series.
