In a notable development for Kfm radio, a new voice has joined the ranks of “The Flash Drive.” After a period of over two months during which Carl Wastie held the fort as the sole host, the station has welcomed its newest member, Tarryn Lamb, to the team. This addition comes in the wake of Zoë Brown’s departure from the show in June, following her impressive six-year stint alongside Wastie.
A Period of Transition
In the wake of Zoë Brown’s departure, Carl Wastie admirably navigated the airwaves with over 50 guest co-hosts, ranging from prominent figures like the Cape Town mayor, Bryan Habana, Cindy Nell Roberts, to Siv Ngesi. However, the station has now found its permanent co-host in the form of Tarryn Lamb.
Warm Reception on Social Media
The news of Tarryn Lamb’s arrival was met with enthusiasm and congratulations from many on social media. Kfm’s official announcement post read, “After 50 incredible Flash Stand-ins, we are thrilled to finally welcome @carlwastie’s permanent co-host – the amazing @tarryn_lamb!”
A Multi-Talented Addition
Tarryn Lamb’s background is diverse and impressive. Born and bred in Cape Town, she possesses a deep love for the city and the Western Cape. Her previous accomplishments include nominations for two South African Music Awards (Sama) and a SAFTA award for her acting prowess. Many may recognize her as the former lead singer of bands such as Blackbyrd and La Vuvuzela.
In addition to her musical achievements, Tarryn has made appearances on popular TV shows like ‘Suidooster’ and ‘Binnelanders.’ Currently, she serves as a mentor on ‘Die Kontrak’ on e.tv.
Tarryn Lamb is set to make her debut on “The Flash Drive” on October 2nd. Expressing her excitement, she said, “I’m so excited to be joining the amazing Carl Wastie on ‘The Flash Drive’ on your drive home! Kfm 94.5, a massive thank you for the warm welcome, the amazing support, and love that I have received from the team. Here’s to us making more magic on the airwaves.”
Carl Wastie, who has known Tarryn for years, is equally thrilled about the partnership. He commented, “Tarryn was one of my ‘Flash Drive’ stand-ins as a celeb, but she fell in love with radio, and here we are… I have known her for years, and she is so authentic, so real, and so talented, perfect for ‘The Flash Drive’ on Kfm 94.5. I am so excited to start a new journey with this amazing person, so stand by to ‘Lamb it uit’ with us every weekday from 3 pm to 7 pm.”
The addition of Tarryn Lamb to “The Flash Drive” promises to bring a fresh dynamic to the show, and listeners can look forward to an exciting new chapter in the world of Kfm radio.
