Campaigning for your Right to Know


Some of the colourful signs at the protest

As we indicated in a previous blog post (Open Letter on Media Freedom and Freedom of Expression), we at Bush Radio are very concerned about certain legislation before Parliament which may hamper the free flow of information.

On Wednesday (27 October 2010), a few of the Bush Radio staff and volunteers participated in a march to parliament organised by the Right to Know campaign, not simply to cover the protest for our newsroom (see story & video) but also to raise some of our concerns.

Download the Bush Radio / WCED Matric Revision programmes


At the end of August, Bush Radio and the Western Cape Education department launched a series of programmes in order to get Matrics ready to write their 2010 final exams.

The programmes were a big success, as it gave learners the chance to get advice from the actual people who draft and mark them.

Bush Radio has decided to make these programmes available online and so that learners could use them as a refresher and something to help ease their stress.

Please note we have compressed the files in order to save you bandwidth – should you want a high quality / cd copy of the programme call Sharon on 021 448 5450.

Going global


Recently we were asked by the organisers of the 10th AMARC Global Conference (World Association of Community Radio broadcasters) to submit a station promo which we thought summed up what the station stood for.
