Celebrate World Radio Day

13/02/2014

radio day 2013

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) has declared the 13th February as World Radio Day. As Africa’s oldest community radio station project we at Bush Radio fully support this intiative as we believe in the power of radio to help build communities and improve lives.

Whether it is through our Children’s Radio Education Workshop (CREW) launched in 1996 where young people learn to use the medium to develop their skills and understanding of media or one of our programmes like Sakhisizwe – Bou die Nation, Build the Nation or even our specialised music programmes like Blues in the Bush where we connect the music to its roots in Africa – radio plays a vital part in almost everyone’s daily life.

Through technology like internet streaming Bush Radio is able to connect to the entire planet with it’s audience not just from Cape Flats but with dedicated listeners in Asia, Europe and the Americas tuning into the station online through computers or mobile phones, Bush Radio truly is more than just FM radio.

Calling all “old” Bushies

Helping you dance away the Sunday blues

25/07/2013

1 retro rewind promo copy

This Sunday on Bush Radio 89.5fm we launch two music programmes:

Retro-Rewind (10h00 – 12h00) hosted by Shiraz “Cazzman” Ramjee and The Love Booth (12h00 – 14h00) hosted by Sive Msolo (former Breakfast Rush and Everyday People).

Both hosts are no strangers to Bush Radio listeners; Shiraz helped the late Roger Lewis with the programme Sensual Sundays and Sive co-hosted the Breakfast Rush and Everyday People.

According to the Programme Integrator Adrian Louw, the addition of these two shows is “only the start of exciting changes that Bush Radio will implement as the station celebrates 18 years on air”.

1 love booth promo copy
Retro-Rewind will be spinning all the forgotten club classics ranging from the late 70s to late 90s. The first half of the show will concentrate on jazz and slow jams. The second half is more uptempo, playing disco classics that promise to make you get up and move. As the name says, we’ll be taking you back… to your school days, your first kiss, or maybe even your first broken heart.

The Love Booth will give you the best of Rhythm and Blues, mixing the new with the old. With an album of the week feature, artist features and your song of the week – The Love Booth is where lovers meet.

Happy Birthday to the Biker Show

31/05/2013

biker header

A repost of the note posted by Trevor Davids – the originator of the Bush Radio Biker Show.

A big thank you to the 43 biker clubs that accepted invitations to co-host the Biker Show for the past year. The Biker Show is now commanding 15% of the Bush Radio overall listeners – A major achievement for a radio program that only hits the airwaves once a week for 3 hours. (Saturdays 2pm – 5pm on 89.5FM or via www.bushradio.co.za nationally)

Thank You to the Bush Radio management (Brenda and Adrian) who agreed to provide us with a weekly 3 hour broadcast platform to promote a positive image of biking especially around the safety aspect, even though they were ‘sold’ on a concept that was written to a three page proposal.

A humongous ode of gratitude to Lloyd Castle, Riki Turner and Jessica Zandberg who formed the original broadcast team as co-presenters and trainee producers – although they had very limited broadcast experience prior to the 1st broadcast, they believed in the vision and mission of The Biker Show. Their encouragement, energy, input and enthusiasm contributed to the format (and enjoyment) of the the Biker Show.

Thank You to Shannon-Leigh Torien and Xanthé Zealand stepped into the world of live radio broadcasting in August 2012. Their unbridled passion for the camaraderie of bikers and the culture thereto, is a major factor in the way they took to broadcasting – they belonged there!

IMG_5020

In October broadcasting veteran and biker Richard Green took over the anchor spot and the Biker Show reached a new level. Richard stamped his enthusiasm, knowledge and expertise on to the Biker Show.

The Biker Show completed 118 hours of live broadcasting inclusive of 6 outside broadcast transmissions from rallies and day functions. ALL members of the broadcast team are volunteers and currently receive no remuneration for the time dedicated to The Biker Show.

The Biker Show is an excellent opportunity for low cost advertising especially targeted at bikers. Contact any member of the Biker Show team for details of advertising packages.

The Biker Show Team is looking forward to another year of fun, laughter, interesting chats, biker camaraderie and the promotion of bike safety.
