Filling in on The Redi Tlhabi Show, Melanie commanded the programme with ease and engaged listeners in some entertaining discussions.
Ahead of Mother's Day, she asked listeners to pay tribute to significant women in their lives and some called in with moving contributions.
She then spoke with struggle stalwart and former ConCourt Justice Zak Yacoob about his own story and his views on President Jacob Zuma, the electoral commission and South Africa's political climate.
"Jacob Zuma lied about Nkandla. I'm afraid we have a dishonest President & he needs to go." - Zak Yacoob, ex ConCourt Justice #FridayStandIn— 702 (@Radio702) May 6, 2016
Finally, Tannie Evita Bezuidenhout brought some light-hearted humour to the show and poked some fun at the sate of affairs in South Africa - with a koeksister reference here and there.
She stole the show with her witty quips and memorable quotes....
