FM, Gauteng’s biggest youth radio station has officially launched its first exclusive podcast, The Banques and Venom Show. The podcast is an ongoing collaboration between Banques and YTKO DJ, Venom, who are among some of the hottest DJs in the industry. Banques began his DJ career in 2007 and Venom in 2011 and they have organically become industry friends while genuinely creating industry connections with some of the biggest names in entertainment.
Both Banques and Venom have and maintain street cred, they know all things music, are all about the hype and always come through with the drip. Seeking to be relatable at all times and having a strong network of connections is of importance to them. They believe everything they have done is a foundation for what they have today. They believe in staying grounded and letting their work speak for itself. Says Banques, “YFM has allowed us to hear the voice and culture of the youth, outside of the traditional way of doing things.” When asked what his purpose is, Venom stated that he believes his purpose is to be the best at what he does and be happy while doing it.
This is yet another first for the station as it continuously seeks to set trends. Episodes in season one, featuring guests Uncle Vinny, Major League, Jazziq, Mpura and DBN Gogo, to name a few, premiere every Tuesday at 7 PM on YFM’s YouTube channel.
