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