DANIELLE PETTERSON AND ELEANOR HARDING: Tuks FM failed to break the Guinness World Record attempt for “The Longest Marathon for a Radio Music Show – DJ Team” after one of the DJs had to leave during the broadcast.

Megan Kinnaird: Monday night saw the Ikeys get their first, and only, win of the 2013 Varsity Cup season, defeating Wits 50-40 on the Green Mile.

The Black EP is a bit darker than your previous EP. What inspired this? 

Liam: I think it all stems from the fact that Jane and I don’t make music that fits into any particular genre.

So we came up with an idea to release three EPs, grouping the tracks together as best [as] we could.

The FNB NMMU Madibaz made history when they qualified for their first-ever Varsity Cup semifinal by beating defending champions UP-Tuks 13-7 in Port Elizabeth on Monday.

The hard-earned victory, which was their first against UP-Tuks, saw the Madibaz advance to the knock-out stage for the first time, edging out FNB NWU-Pukke by the narrowest of margins on points' difference.
