Video: Radiohead's Colin Greenwood in South Africa

Radiohead member Colin Greenwood is in South Africa with Children's Radio Foundation.


Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood has been stationed in South Africa for the past weeks as a "Global Ambassador" of Children's Radio Foundation — an organization that pairs radio stations with youth organizations to create a space where "young people [can] speak about their concerns and reach out... about the issues they face." Greenwood's been keeping a blog about his day-to-days, which is mostly radio-talk but is also peppered with anecdotes about things like drinking ginger beer and some of the young reporters' take on Radiohead (they like the old stuff better). Watch a video highlighting a young reporter from the Northern Cape, as well as one of Greenwood visiting Khayelitsha, Cape Town below.
