Getting through Matric 2010


The 2010 Matric exams are fast approaching and Bush Radio 89.5 FM and the Western Cape Education Department is attempting to ease the stress of matrics through a series of revision programmes which will be aired every Monday and Wednesday evening from 7 to 8pm.

If you are in Matric or know anyone who is, you owe it to yourself to tune into 89.5FM and listen to the advice and tips in these programmes.

Let’s get through these Matric exams together on 89.5 FM!

The schedule for the Matric Revision Programme 2010 (Mondays and Wednesdays, 7-8pm):


Rocking your Mother


Besides the great talk programmes on Bush Radio we are known for the best specialist music shows – many of which have been running for more than 12 years like the Drum ‘n Bass show and Blues in the Bush.

We are also known for some of the best programme names – like The Unhappy Hour (which runs for two hours) and Gister se Dinge.  

With the success of the “Maak Victor Mal” slot on a Wednesday morning we have decided that we need to bring back more rock to the station. 

We are pleased to announce that on Monday the 12th April 2010 – the mother is going to rock. 

Tune into 89.5 FM or listen online to the Wrong Rock Show with Greg “The Hammer” Donnelly at 10pm, as he takes you on a journey beyond the limitations of the mainstream, to a place where vintage rock ‘n roll can rub shoulders with anarchic post-rock.
That’s the Wrong Rock Show, launching this coming Monday night the 12th April at 10pm.

Speaking words of wisdom

Courtney Sampson

Rev Courtney Sampson

Reverend Courtney Sampson, Chief Electoral Officer of the IEC Western Cape was in studio yesterday to help wrap up the the Matric Revision Programme. Reverend Sampson shared words of encouragement, comfort and upliftment to the Matric class of 2009, as they embark on the gruelling final matric examinations.

Jaywant Parbhoo, Chief Education Specialist for the Western Cape Education Department, was also a guest on the programme. He offered matriculants practical tips to ensure they succeed in the exams.

Red Riding Hood and her “alternative household”


Do you want bedtime stories that are not sexist, racist, culturalist, nationalist, regionalist, ageist, lookist, sizeist, intellectualist, or filled with any other type of bias?

Tune into Bush Radio 89.5 FM tonight (Wednesday 16/09/2009) at 8pm for part one of the hysterical Politically Correct Bedtime stories by James Finn Garner.

You will find out more about Red Riding Hood and her “alternative household” and how the Three Little Pigs became “porcinistas”.

Another highlight will be the lullaby versions of AC/DC and Beatles songs featured as breaks between stories.
