Born and raised on a farm near Viljoenskroon in the Free State, Margaret attended Eunice high school and went on to complete an LLB at the University of the Free State. Her journey through several legal avenues led her to specialise in Liquor Law.
During her varsity and article years, DM Magpie did some club DJing and spinning the decks stuck. Now you’ll find her setting the mood for parties and heating up the dance floor at weddings of which she does 25 to 30 a year!
Lockdown didn’t have her resting on her laurels though, her love for English compelled her to complete a TEFL course to keep busy.
One would not guess that Margaret is a newbie when it comes to radio, maybe proof that all the pretend shows she used to record in her room as a child paid off.
She loves how the medium connects people and hopes to bring across a fresh and honest perspective coupled with some good humour.
When she’s not on the ones and tows, dotting i’s, crossing t’s, or learning new skills, Margaret loves spending time with her Dachshund/Yorkie named ‘Guiness’. She adores finding and listening to new music, hanging out with friends, meeting interesting people and observing society, good wine and coffee in hand.
Small wonder then her favourite quote is from Abraham Lincoln, “Whatever you are, be a good one.”
