RIP – Robbie Jansen 1949 – 2010

A legend: Robbie Jansen

It is with great sadness that we at Bush Radio learnt of the passing of legendary Cape Town based musician Robbie Jansen.

Uncle Robbie as he was known to many of the young people at the station was always willing to come into the studio to talk about music and share some of the life lessons he had learnt.

His version of Mannenburg was used by several talk shows on Bush Radio through the years and even the  newsteam would use his music in their current affairs programme.

We will miss you.

Tonight (7 July 2010) on Bush Radio 89.5 FM from 20h00 – 22h00, Backchat’s Bassie Montewa will be host a special tribute programme to one of our true folk heroes. To share your feelings, thoughts and special memories call the studio on 021 448 6266.
