Keith Hutchinson played in the earliest incarnations of the band firstly as bassist then moving on to woodwinds and keyboard. I was friendly with both him and Braam since we were all from Springs and played together as we tried to get our musical careers off the ground. Springs was a marvellous supply house of musicians in all the top bands at the time - an later as shown by the Radio Rats. P.S. [Radio Rat lead singer] Dave Davie's nickname in Springs was "Boertjie" - drove a mighty Dodge Charger.
