Background to Community House

Community House situated in Salt River, Cape Town is a unique and historic site of living heritage. It has always been known as a site of activism from around the mid 1980s which has shaped and continues to shape the socio-political landscape of its extended communities. The building itself houses NGO’s and Trade Unions as well as a labour and community history museum centered on the Trade Union Library and its archive. It presently houses twenty-four organizations that focus on labour research, popular education, gender advocacy, HIV/AIDS education, environmental issues, youth development, media production and union organization.

In the mid-1980s, anti-apartheid trade unions and civic and service organizations began searching for a new headquarters for their resistance campaign. The Western Province Council of Churches (WPCC) and an NGO, the Social Change Assistance Trust (SCAT) met this need. They purchased a dilapidated auto-workshop in Salt River, an area known for its textile and light metal factories and which marks the origins of industrial unions in the province.

The site was declared a provincial heritage site in 2010.

On Sunday the 25th February 2018 the Bush Radio crew came out in support of Open Streets Main Road. The team headed by Sive Msolo broadcast the Love Booth and Retro Rewind from the pavement. The Shiraaz “Cazzman” Ramjee also pulled through to do his programme as well as braaing some lekker boerewors, while Yuzriq Meyer, moved up and down Victoria Road bringing us the gees from what was happening all along the Main Road.

The next Open Streets is scheduled for Mitchells Plain on the 25th March 2018. Perhaps we can get the rest of the Sunday team out there. Let us know in the comments what you think or if you could support us with an outside broadcast.

Step It Up for Gender Equality

07/03/2016

international women's day copyThe 8th of March 2016 marks International Women’s Day and to help celebrate the day, the women involved in Bush Radio (past and present) will be taking to the airwaves from 6am to 8pm to highlight the work, struggles and achievements of women.

Current women presenters on Bush Radio will be on air during the day and some new and old voices will be back on the airwaves. The male presenters will take a behind-the-scenes role by producing for some of the shows so that every woman currently working at the station – from those in admin, household, sales and reception – will take to the airwaves.

Even though it is not unusual for the Bush Radio airwaves to be filled with women’s voices, it was proposed that the station step it up for the day and swop around presenters for the day (eg: Lazola Solani who hosts the magazine programme Sakhisizwe will host the Breakfast Rush and our managing director, Brenda Leonard, will take on Sakhisizwe with former Bushnews editor, Lusanda Bill).

Stay tuned for the special The Women Who Built Bush Radio, hosted by Juanita Williams, AllAfrica.com managing editor (former Bush Radio news editor, trainer and gender issues programme producer and presenter). This programme will look back and speak with some of the women who have fought to free the airwaves and media in South Africa, and pay tribute to their contributions.

International Women’s Day will end with an outside broadcast from a City Of Cape Town Social Development, Subcouncil 9 and Early Childhood Development event in Khayelitsha.

The event will focus on awareness raising on issues that are pertinent to women, like eradicating domestic violence and entrepreneurship. The programme will also include guest speakers such as the Mayoral committee member for Social Development and Early childhood development, Suzette Little, and Minister of Small Business Development Lindiwe Zulu.

Programme Lineup:

07h00 – 09h00 – The Breakfast Rush: Lazola Solani

09h00 – 12h00 – The Morning Cruise: Natasha Siqaza

12h00 – 14h00 – Sakhisizwe: Brenda Leonard and Lazola Solani

14h00 – 16h00 – Backchat: Gabebah Abdullah and Jasnine Roberts
