The Gareth Cliff Show: Decimal Dan, the “Ront/Cent” Man

There were some hysterics on the show this week. Also, it turns out, the name of our currency is actually pronounced “Ront”, which is a little depressing…

Check out this Wednesday’s episode of the Gareth Cliff Showon CliffCentral, where we discussed South Africa’s move from the British Pound’s Imperial currency system, to the decimal-based Rand, during the early Sixties. More specifically, a song which was composed for the radio, to explain to people how to exchange their shillings and tickies, for “Ronts” and cents.

Skip ahead to 14:57 to get the Decimal Dan song, and the quality kak-talking that followed.
