It’s time once more to listen to Herman Charles Bosman stories. And now you can have them in your sitting room, on your stoep or even just before you turn in. You can take them with you; listen and watch as Oom Schalk weaves tales of the Bushveld from his own private stoep. Here you will find laughter in unexpected places, as one of his biographers, Valerie Rosenberg writes, ‘[Bosman’s] pursuit of humour was as assiduous as a radar scanner, as delicately woven as a spider’s web; and like a retinal image, it persists long after the lights have been extinguished”. Enjoy, savour and cherish.
