Die Vloek van die Strandjutwolf is a musical built around music taken from Stoom Radio, the debut album from Die Radio Kalahari Orkes. Boet and Swaer run a radio station in the middle of nowhere. In between regular slots like the news, they entertain their listeners with songs and things all seem to be going well until RAP arrives to let them know that he has received the shares of his grandfather, Oupa Moegae, as a present. When they all hear that there is a reward to capture the last hyena – an animal that has been torturing Swaer’s family for generations – in the surroundings, they head out to do just that, while Boet stays at the radio station and crosses over live to follow their exploits.
