Change what you hear on radio – Do it yourself!


Tired of boring radio, the same silly talkshows or uninformed music shows presented by djs with egos larger than Table Mountain?

We are inviting interested individuals and organisations to submit programme application proposals for potential development into volunteer radio programmes. We are looking for new and exciting programmes under the following broad subject areas:

Children, Youth, Aged/seniors, Citizen’s Education, Arts and Culture, Gender, Disability, Music (all genres), Africa, Media, Health, Sport, Technology

Programme proposals should have a specific aim, a defined target audience and be focused on specific issues/themes under the subject area.

No previous broadcasting experience is required to submit a proposal as Bush Radio will provide the necessary training and support should your proposal be selected for development.

What are we looking for in your proposal?

Potential – not only in ideas, but in people.

Programming produced by groups, not individuals Local content and rooted in the listening community A diversity of grassroots voices, languages and accents from all over Cape Town Identifies an audience that it wishes to serve Respectful of its audience Commitment to the concept of volunteerism Puts a premium on local (ie Cape Town) content Contributes to meeting our regulatory obligations
