Engaging talk and critical thinking (2 new programmes)

05/10/2021
Bush Radio Managing Director, Brenda Leonard giving Cornerstone Institute CEO, Noel Daniels some in studio tips and tricks while Mkhuseli Veto looks on

Bush Radio 89.5FM in partnership with the Cornerstone Institute will this week (Thursday, 7 October 2021 from 7pm)  launch two new programmes.

The first is the Cornerstone Critical Dialogues and the second is Community Champions.

Cornerstone Critical Dialogues which starts at 7pm, will feature some of South Africa’s most influential thinkers, activists, performing artists and business people to debate the topics that matter most for society. Journalist Ryan Fortune will lead this collaborative project – a live radio show and podcast on Bush Radio and other platforms – is a direct offshoot (and next logical evolution) of the popular Cornerstone Critical Dialogues series.

Community Champions at 9pm  is where Noel Daniels, CEO of the Cornerstone Institute, will be chatting with one community champion, social or cultural activist, who may not always get the attention they deserve in the mainstream media. Noel will take us on a journey, exploring the world of leaders of non-profit organisations, social entrepreneurs, ground breakers and doers who are making a difference in their communities. They all have one thing in common – they are the people who play it forward.

SPEAK UP….

A Bush Radio Talk Show (with music produced by South Africans)

Trevor Davids and Geoff Mamputa will run a new limited edition radio talk show on Bush Radio especially produced for the 16-Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence. The programme creates a space for conversations that would promote healing and behavioral change among men.

While both men and women can be victims of violence, violence against women, often at the hands of men, is a unique category of violence that is embedded in the historical and current unequal balance of power between men and women.

Violence against women is the crucial element that reinforces men’s power and control over women throughout . On some level, most of us participate in the culture that supports and encourages violence against women and girls, sometimes in small ways (like telling our friends to “man up” when they have to do something difficult)

Speak Up seeks to be a space where men feel drawn in, understood and at home as well as inspired to be their best selves and take action.

Many men are afraid of speaking up because they are afraid of being marginalised and of being excluded from groups of men.

Speaking up can come with costs and can jeopardize men’s social status and position, which causes many men to abandon their values and keep quiet rather than speak up and take action.

Speak Up will find and stand with men who want to make a difference and Speak Up will strive to serve by providing tools and skills to take action.

1st Broadcast: Wed 25 November @ 7pm

Bush Radio gives rise to ordinary women this August

02/08/2017

ladiesnight logo2017.jpgAs South Africa commemorates women’s month in August, we will give rise to a group of every day women with no previous radio or media experience, to take to the airwaves for the very first time. While the radio station is volunteer run and presenters are not remunerated for their services, the women will be given a platform to give a voice to the voiceless and various communities.

The programme, dubbed Ladies Night, was conceptualized on a WhatsApp group between seven friends and will become a reality on Thursday, 3 August 2017 from 7pm. The programme is developed, produced and presented by women and will cover various topics and issues faced by the women in their everyday lives while still being entertaining. The overarching theme is to connect and inspire like-minded people within the diverse communities of the Bush Radio footprint.

The group comprises of Adielah Jacobs, Megan Cookson, Merle Du Plessis, Jodi Gordon, Michele Pinto, Tracy Van Turha and Renee Bailey. The women all come from different backgrounds and are qualified professionals in their own right. Between them various areas are represented law, education, information technology and project management.

Ladies Night on Bush Radio 89.5FM will air for three hours every Thursday evening between 7pm and 10pm for the month of August. The style of the programme is highly conversational but casual and relatable at the same time. Each of the women come from different backgrounds and each brings a uniqueness to the show with their different characteristics.

According to Bush Radio Managing Director, Brenda Leonard: “As we celebrate 22 years of being on-air legally, we are very excited to have this programme. Ladies Night highlights how Bush Radio takes a holistic approach to creating innovative programming and works in collaboration with listeners and potential listeners to bring relevant content to the airwaves.”

salon1

Bush Radio’s new programme; The Salon is a sexy, sincere and playful hangout session between three friends that discuss the Queer Capetonian experience. Moving through LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex) content, introducing new queer voices that laugh, play and get serious about difficult topics to broaden the perspectives that restrict the human rights of LGBTI community with compassion and acceptance.

We are hoping the audience includes everyone within the LGBTI community as well as those that stand outside of it with curiosity or disapproval.

The programme is designed to break down stereotypes and negative ideas about the LGBTI community, and aims to shatter negative misconceptions by including those that have them into its audience. There is no us vs. them, rather a movement towards an us, that is all inclusive regardless of sexual orientation.

The Salon is hosted by Myles Heneke, Sarah Summers and Sizo Mahlangu.

Tune into The Salon, Wednesdays from 8pm on 89.5FM or via www.bushradio.co.za

This Sunday on Bush Radio 89.5fm we launch two music programmes:

Retro-Rewind (10h00 – 12h00) hosted by Shiraz “Cazzman” Ramjee and The Love Booth (12h00 – 14h00) hosted by Sive Msolo (former Breakfast Rush and Everyday People).

Both hosts are no strangers to Bush Radio listeners; Shiraz helped the late Roger Lewis with the programme Sensual Sundays and Sive co-hosted the Breakfast Rush and Everyday People.

According to the Programme Integrator Adrian Louw, the addition of these two shows is “only the start of exciting changes that Bush Radio will implement as the station celebrates 18 years on air”.

Retro-Rewind will be spinning all the forgotten club classics ranging from the late 70s to late 90s. The first half of the show will concentrate on jazz and slow jams. The second half is more uptempo, playing disco classics that promise to make you get up and move. As the name says, we’ll be taking you back… to your school days, your first kiss, or maybe even your first broken heart.

The Love Booth will give you the best of Rhythm and Blues, mixing the new with the old. With an album of the week feature, artist features and your song of the week – The Love Booth is where lovers meet.

Let’s dih-zahyn tet-uh-tet

23/02/2012

For the past 4 weeks, Modila* and Bush Radio 89.5fm successfully piloted a show on 89.5FM  which dealt with the concept of design.

Today we invite you to tune into 89.5FM or online (from your mobile or PC) for dsgnTête-à-Tête (pronounced dih-zahyn  tet-uh-tet) at 2:30pm.

The show continues to create a platform for debate and discussion around design with a special emphasis on how we define the concept of design, and how do we use it to raise social issues.

In today’s show we look at “Supporting Designers” – the current recession has had an umistakeable impact on the South African economy, with many businesses struggling to remain open.

In this context, will we be celebrating the 2014 Design Capital with destitute designers and local buyers? Has government supported designers enough during the financial crisis, or is it left to designers, as creative and intelligent thinkers, to create their own self-funded businesses?

*MoDILA, ‘Africa’s cradle for design and leadership excellence’.

dsgnTête-à-Tête is the flagship discussion platform of MODILA and Bush Radio.

Change by design – check out dsgnM@ttrs on 89.5FM

02/02/2012

Modila* and Bush Radio 89.5FM have launched a programme which creates a platform for debate and discussion around design called dsgnM@ttrs.

With Cape Town being named as the 2014 Design Capital, focus is falling on the design field, where South Africa is arguably behind in comparison to the international design market.

One of the problems that plague the industry is a general misconception and misuse on the concept of ‘design’, and a general lack of understanding within the South African business environment on the potential of design.

We need to start talking about design, and what it can do. How would you define the concept of ‘design’, and how do we use design to raise social issues?

Tune in every Thursday at 2:30pm for dsgnM@ttrs on 89.5fm or online via www.bushradio.co.za

*MoDILA, ‘Africa’s cradle for design and leadership excellence’. dsgnM@ttrs is the flagship discussion platform of MODILA and Bush Radio.”
