Madder than a Hatter, nuttier than box of chocolates, wilder than a typhoon… that’s 5FM’s Roger Goode. This ball of energy lights up 5FM on weekdays with the new drive show between 4 and 7PM. The “Roger Goode Radio Show” is a mix of great tunes and Roger’s pumped-up enthusiasm along with team members Thando, Kim & Sias. Forget reality TV – this is reality radio and it’s like nothing you’ve ever heard on the airwaves before.
There’s never a dull moment when Roger Goode is in the house. Rogers previous 7PM-10PM weeknight show was a dynamic, fast-paced, high-energy show filled with plenty of listener interactions, personal stories from Roger, regular visits from characters such as Mr Announcer Guy , Tim from the Gym, Howard and, of course, the kind of unwavering energy and great music that 5FM listeners know and love …. and the new drive show will be no different.
The ‘Goode Doctor’ first exploded onto the dance music scene aged just 21 when he was signed to Pete Tong's London Records for his legendary dance track In The Beginning. With 100,000 copies of the track distributed to stations and DJs across Europe, Roger quickly became a household name and has never looked back. In The Beginning made it to the number one UK chart spot and became a dance anthem in every major club on the London circuit.
Despite his notable and varied career success to date, Roger has remained incredibly down to earth and humble. He enjoys spending time at home in his customised home music studio where he produces and mixes all his own content: “I produce and prepare everything for my show myself in my home studio. It’s been known to turn into my very own nightclub on weekends with a fantastic dance floor. Essentially, the studio is known for regularly turning into a creative circus where great music minds meet and cool things happen.”
His career at 5FM to date has been a dream come true for the intellectually and creatively brilliant Roger and he has a strong legion of adoring listeners who tune into his show every week and, as one of the most coveted and booked out DJs at events around the country, show up at his gigs every weekend.
Career highlights for 5FM’s eccentric master of madcap include nurturing upcoming DJs and giving them a platform to showcase their skills, representing the South African music Industry at the world Winter Music Conference 2004/2005 in Miami as well as being nominated for the Best Producer Award at the E-event Underground Dance Music Awards (The Gurnies) and Best Album and Best New Dance Single at the SAMAs (SA Music Awards).
Roger has notched up some impressive club DJing credentials. In addition to playing gigs around the country every weekend, he’s had the privilege to spin vinyl alongside respected names such as Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Ferry Corsten (Purple Eye), Sarah Main (Pacha), Boris Dlugosh (MTV Tour), Simon Dunmore & Martin Solvieg (Defected), Tim Deluxe (ClearWater), ShapeShifters (Lola's Theme), Junior Jack & Kid Creme (Ministry Tour), Alan Thompson, Sister Bliss (Faithless), Nigel Dawson (Renaissance) in all corners of the planet.
Roger spends his money on tech gadgets including computer games, gig paraphernalia and Lego. He plans to stay with 5FM for as long as he can still attract thousands of listeners, which means he is likely to be around for many more years to come.
