Shock at news of Roger Lewis’s death

25/11/2012

Roger Lewis

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.

Camping it up at Parliament

22/11/2012

Yesterday as part of our regular Wednesday staff development session, Bush Radio members went to Parliament to check out the Right2Know’s Camp-Out for Openess and take part in the teach-in that was running at that time.

So i did a tribute to Homegrown radio show – Here it is:

21/11/2012

This is a repost of a blog entry by Hyphen on his site.

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 staff and trainees decided to do something “fun” for the Wednesday staff development session this week. It involved tasting lots of weird dishes and breaking a few eggs.
