A message to all our listeners and supporters as we come to the end of 2016. Thank you from all of us.
Today (13 December 2016) the Beulah Welfare a non-profit organisation based in Mitchells Plain had a Christmas celebration for underprivileged children in the Rocklands area.
Bush Radio and Global Max Media partnered with the organisation to make the day a success.
There were over 300 kids, some were accompanied by their parents to join in the day’s activities which included face paintings, food and local entertainment and games.
One of Bush Radio’s oldest programmes is called Backchat and it sees almost 20 guests (activists, NGOs, social movements etc) come through and onto the airwaves per week. But we have a saying at Bush (one of many), “that a little bit of sugar makes the medicine go down”, so from time to time the Backchat team which consists of Bassie, Siviwe and Natasha bring in some interesting musicians and artists to lighten up the studio.
So whether it is learning the oldest dance in South Africa or experiencing a new musical form like Xho-pera, we thought we should share a small sample of these acts here:
