As part of the regular staff development sessions at Bush Radio we tried finding out what this “getting fit” thing is all about.

Over the years we’ve done – yoga, how to change a car tire, the internal combustion engine, soldering, signal path etc but this was a special challenge.

The Bush team was hosted by James Owen who put us through our paces. If you want more information on the 360 Specialised Training programme contact James on 074 44 45087.

RIP – Randall Titus

11/03/2014

randall titusWe at Bush Radio are saddened to hear about the the passing of our former volunteer, Randall Titus.

Just after Bush Radio 89.5FM officially went on air in 1995, Randall and another volunteer Robert Moult initiated our first sports programme which was broadcast on Saturday afternoons.

Randall had a passion for local sport and brought this passion into the studio where he shared his knowledge and enthusiasm with all the Bush Radio listeners.

According to a press statement issued by Professor Brian O’ Connell, University of the Western Cape rector and vice chancellor, Randall was also a member of the University Council and served on various committees. We believe this is a true testament to the passion Randall had for the communities of the Western Cape.

Recently he also had meetings with Bush Radio to discuss various future projects.

We wish to send our condolences to the Titus family, and his colleagues and friends.
