Over the past few days we have received lots of messages of support and condolences on the passing of our volunteer Roger Lewis who hosted Sensual Sundays. We would like to say thank you. We are posting just a few on the listener tributes to Roger here as well as some of the pics taken at his memorial service.
* This Sunday (2 December 2012) at 12pm, Bush Radio 89.5FM will host a special tribute show to Roger.
We are shocked and saddened at the news of Bush Radio volunteer Roger Lewis dying in a road accident last night on his way back to Cape Town. We’ve since learnt that his funeral rites will be held at 79 Prince George Drive at 4pm today (November 25), and then move to Muizenberg Cemetery.
Roger presented Sensual Sundays, and was very dedicated to the show and a committed volunteer. He was on a break from the show because of work commitments in Pretoria.
Tributes have been pouring in, and our condolences go to his family and friends.
So as you may or may not know , i do a weekly radio show on Bush Radio 89.5fm. (Tuesday’s, 10pm)
Seeing as the last Homegrown ever was upon us , i decided to get all the guys in a do a tribute show .
All the music was off Counterstrike’s debut cd – Biogenesis and i had a bunch of chats with various people involved
It’s a little large (the show was 2 hours) but it’s definately a piece of South African drum & bass history
Bush Radio would like to express its condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Dr Neville Alexander who passed away on the 27th August 2012.
In memory of the work of Dr Alexander we have made available a recording from a series of programmes produced at Bush Radio called Critical Rendezvous which was broadcast in 2004.
On Tuesday 5 June 2012 at the African Arts Institute offices in Union House, playwright and Executive Director of the Institute, Mike van Graan chaired a panel discussion/forum which considered the implications to artists of the uproar about Brett Murray’s controversial SPEAR painting. It was hosted by Arterial Network. A lively debate, occasionally slightly anarchic, ensued.
Nigel Vermaas, who attended the forum, assembled a 17.30 minute version of the two-hour event for his Arts Update in Friday’s Sakhisizwe show (8 June). Inevitably the choices made will not find favour with all, much nuance is, of course, lost, and some of the edits are a bit abrupt – but the gist is there.
