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.

Vaxx On, Vaxx off

17/09/2021

Renato, Bush Radio’s 22-year-old logistics and programming intern, took the big step this week and went for the first part of his Covid-19 vaccination.

He said he was very nervous and hates needles, but like so many people in our worldwide community he has been directly affected by the pandemic with the loss of family members.

“My experience on getting the vaccine, it was quick and fast, I looked away for a second and it was over. It literally felt like a prick. With my side effects, I just felt a little bit of a headache, a little bit of chills. My arm was just a little bit sore for about two days and on the second day my headache and chills went away and on the third day I was up, back and running,” said Renato. 

Along with several volunteers, staff and interns he went to the CTICC vaccination site to get his jab on Monday morning. 

He decided to get the jab after studying the facts available and knowing that he is helping to safeguard his family and colleagues at the station, and the communities Bush Radio serve when going out on projects like outside broadcasts and events. 

Renato also has on-air duties, so if you would like to ask him or find out about his Covid-19 vaccination experience tune in on Monday, September 20, 2021, from 2pm till 4pm on Backchat when you can message or call him.

To the youth of today, I also have a wish to make: be the scriptwriters of your destiny and feature yourselves as stars that showed the way towards a brighter future. – Nelson Mandela

Age considers; youth ventures. – Rabindranath Tagore

Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old. – Franz Kafka

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.

When you do it, do it with passion like Oppie Yaart!

26/03/2021

Every day at Bush Radio we offer a platform for people to talk about the issues and challenges that affect them. Encouraging active citizenship and changing how the Cape Flats is portrayed, how we see ourselves, each other and our land. This is our little way of recognising the strength, resilience and beauty we possess.

We don’t consider ourselves experts on any particular subject, but we provide a space (through 89.5 FM, online and social media) where people can help change their communities.

Our communities know the challenges that face them, and in most cases those very communities have innovative solutions to these challenges.

To quote Bob Marley – “None but ourselves can free our minds” and in line with the Bush Radio philosophy – “Don’t curse the darkness, light a candle” – we want to highlight the work of Oppie Yaart, and invite you to listen to an interview that inspired us this week.

Good News This Week

23/02/2021

One of the many sayings at Bush Radio is “don’t curse the darkness, light a candle” and in these times it seems particularly hard. When we came across an illustrator called Amii James from the UK we reached out and asked if we could share some of the work on our blog.

Amii is doing a series of work called “Good News This Week” – check out some of them out below or visit the facebook page.
