Friday the 18th September saw the last of the 10 days / 10 presenters slot of Bush Radio 89.5 FM. It was a huge success judging by the response and we will definitely be doing something similar soon.

Below you can see and listen to the guys who were in studio with Shiraaz for the two weeks. (CLICK HERE or on pic for the slide show with AUDIO)

Wind and rain (+ slow public transport) couldn’t keep her away

Cape Town’s bad weather couldn’t dampen the spirits of the first winner of the “10days /10 presenters” competition even though she arrived at Bush Radio this morning, wet and cold, after being stuck in the traffic.

“It was a very enlightening experience,” says Ashleigh Davids, after co-hosting Bush Radio’s breakfast show, It’s All Good with Shiraaz earlier this morning.

 “I learnt that you have to be on your feet and produce something that will educate and entertain your listeners, as well as producing a good show for the radio station and yourself as a DJ,” says Davids.

 As a journalist with a keen interest in the entertainment industry matched with a love of music, Ashleigh says radio broadcasting is a career option she would like to explore. (CLICK HERE or ON PICTURE to see Ashleigh in action)
