Natalie’s first time – Cycle Tour 2014 (video)

12/03/2014

Sometimes our volunteers do weird and wonderful things – (for example Sive walking on fire). This time around it was the turn of Everyday People co-host, Natalie Malgas.

Natalie committed to herself last year that when she turns 25 she will take part in the Cape Argus Pick ‘n Pay Momentum Cycle Tour. So two days after her birthday she was off on the grueling 109km race.

We asked her to take one of our cameras with her and file a short report:

RIP – Randall Titus

11/03/2014

randall titusWe at Bush Radio are saddened to hear about the the passing of our former volunteer, Randall Titus.

Just after Bush Radio 89.5FM officially went on air in 1995, Randall and another volunteer Robert Moult initiated our first sports programme which was broadcast on Saturday afternoons.

Randall had a passion for local sport and brought this passion into the studio where he shared his knowledge and enthusiasm with all the Bush Radio listeners.

According to a press statement issued by Professor Brian O’ Connell, University of the Western Cape rector and vice chancellor, Randall was also a member of the University Council and served on various committees. We believe this is a true testament to the passion Randall had for the communities of the Western Cape.

Recently he also had meetings with Bush Radio to discuss various future projects.

We wish to send our condolences to the Titus family, and his colleagues and friends.

Some background on the Barleycorn Music Club:

Barleycorn’s principal function is to promote & present the best local, original music. Over the years, the Barleycorn has played a role in the musical careers of a number of now household names. David Kramer recorded his first album ‘Bakgat’ at the club in 1980 and others who’ve enjoyed our support include Amapondo, Flat Stanley, Freshly Ground, Steve Newman & Tony Cox amongst a very long list!
