In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Papa Loves Mambo.”

Like many South African families, Rodriguez was a fixture in our home. My dad would slap on the music along with eggs and toast on Sunday mornings and we’d all get to hear his favorites, never forgetting the Stones and his all time hero Rod Stewart. My dad had a huge collection of records, he collected them like I collected books. And of course there was always the mystery of how Rodriguez died for there was no record of it, he just vanished off the face of the Earth. In the absence of hard cold fact, many theories did indeed abound. For any readers who have not seen Searching for Sugarman, it is an amazing documentary! A must-see!
