Topical legal issues are dealt with, humorously, and in plain English. Most shows feature a specialist guest in addition to a full hour open line for questions on any legal issues. Regular listeners will gain a good practical knowledge of most areas of the law which are covered during the year. The show addresses the need of ordinary South Africans to achieve empowerment through the exercise of their legal rights as enshrined in the South African Constitution.

The show answers questions on health and diseases. Each show is systematically structured:
- Each show has a different topic selected by Harry and the producer.
- Harry is joined in studio by a guest who is an expert on the topic.
- Relevant support groups or community organisations participate telephonically.
- The topic is followed by an open line.
- The information provided is designed to help not provoke controversy or confrontation.
- The information is provided on science. We do not discuss alternative health.

Sagie and Adam are two motor mechanics with workshops in Johannesburg. Each week they chat about different issues affecting everyone who owns a car or takes a taxi! Every week between 20h00 and 20h30 they allow you to call in with the model, mileage and make of your car, and they then give you a car value. The lines are always open for people to call in and ask about problems they have with their cars.

He came to Joburg from Durban and worked for Cargo Motors but decided he wanted his own business. Twelve years ago he did exactly that and called his company Sagie's Auto Performance. His business is situated in Midrand. Sagie loves fast cars and wild women.

About Adam Ford:
Born in the UK in the early '60s. Always had an interest in cars and mechanical things, like most boys I suppose. Completed my education at Dale College in King Williams Town in the Eastern Cape. Attempted to be a salesman but eventually joined motor industry in early '80s. Started my own business in 1986, servicing and repairing cars. Still can be found with my head under a bonnet and getting my hands dirty. Did some late night radio on 702 as "Honest Mac", progressed to Friday eve to co-host "A Word on Cars" and as they say, the rest is history.
