There Are No Words…

03/06/2021

We are living in a time of anxiety, uncertainty, loss, grief and  isolation.

In 1969 Elisabeth Kübler-Ross defined the five stages of grief as DENIAL, ANGER, BARGAINING, DEPRESSION and ACCEPTANCE.

These stages are experienced by those who have lost a loved one, but can also be caused by loss of work, rejection, the end of a relationship, the onset of an illness and more.

Nigel Vermaas (yes, the very same host of Connected 2 Jazz and the Arts Update, broadcaster, actor, mentor to Bush Radio trainees etc etc etc) presents THERE ARE NO WORDS.

Nigel created the audio dramas as part of the (Un)Infecting the City Public Arts Festival 2021 in collaboration with Bush Radio – the Mother of Community Radio in Africa.

There Are No Words consists of five short (very short!) audio dramas which portray the five stages with minimal dialogue and feature the talents of actors Royston Stoffels, Bianca Flanders and Chris Gxalaba.

Says Nigel: “It’s really an experiment. I look forward to listeners’ response. If they wish to hear an episode again, they can go to www.infectingthecity.co.za and find it there.”

There Are No Words will be broadcast on Bush Radio 89.5FM from Monday to Friday from the 7th June at 1:10pm.

Grow with #BushRadio – Community Farmer’s Radio Show

02/05/2021

A new radio production – COMMUNITY FARMER’S RADIO SHOW – is in development. This radio show is designed to encourage, motivate, support the growth of self-sustainable urban communities. This production will primarily focus on all aspects of community farming and will include conversations on the research and development of sustainable alternative energy sources.

COMMUNITY FARMERS RADIO SHOW will join two recently launched radio productions.

The SPEAK UP TALK SHOW is a current affairs production as a platform for ‘ordinary’ people to engage on pertinent social issues like Gender Based Violence (GBV), Racism, Poverty, Homelessness, Human Rights etc. – not to apportion blame but to engage in experiences of behavioural change. The SpeakUp on Bush facilitates uncomfortable conversations that takes centre stage in driving the need for behavioural change and healing in society

RUNNING TRACK is a magazine show that’s all about running – road, trail, cross country, track & field, leisure, for fun, wellness including walking as a sport and leisure. and much more – exclusively dedicated to news and interest w.r.t all forms of running and walking.

All productions are developed and produced by people with relatively no broadcasting experience under the guidance of Bush Radio. Speak Up have done three productions to date and Running Track, one. Volunteers of both production crews responded to an Expression of Interest invitation published on FB

The productions are three-hour live shows broadcasted across the the Bush Radio 89.FM footprint in the Western Cape and globally via live audio-streaming, FB Live, other media networks including a Podcast postal.

All productions are individually broadcasted live on a selected Wednesday of each month from 7pm to 10pm. The first broadcast of COMMUNITY FARMER’S RADIO SHOW is provisionally scheduled for Wednesday 19 May.

Express your interest to join the COMMUNITY FARMER’S RADIO SHOW production crew or any other production as a presenter, content developer, social media integrator, audio engineering and studio production, by emailing your details to trevord0606@gmail.com with a short bio/expression of interests as to why you volunteering. All production and training sessions are online.

The only physical meet is on the evening of a broadcast live show. All COVID Safety protocols are applicable.

Experience is NOT a requirement. Passion and the willingness to be an agent for social change, is essential and a requirement. Radio production is fun!

International Mother Language Day (WATCH)

21/02/2019

21 February is International Mother Language Day, an annual observance held to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and promote multilingualism.

2019 is also the International Year of Indigenous languages and Bush Radio is in the process of promoting and educating listeners about indigenous language.

“Languages are the most powerful instruments of preserving and developing our tangible and intangible heritage. All moves to promote the dissemination of mother tongues will serve not only to encourage linguistic diversity and multilingual education but also to develop fuller awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions throughout the world and to inspire solidarity based on understanding, tolerance and dialogue.”
