    I often enjoy listening to Bush Radio and it is great that you have programs from around the world.

    However, tonight when I was listening I was wondering who chooses the programs that are aired? I was listening to a whole program on American sports – and although I have travelled extensively throughout the States I was wondering who on earth would be interested in American sports here in Cape Town? Also the program is ONE YEAR OLD!!! (they were talking about a movie that was released and a book that was published in the States a year ago!!)

    So thanks for the international shows but please please try and keep them relevant and up to date!

    I am a ocassional radio listener, cause I’m a busy guy, but I’m enjoying this morning’s R&B mix on 89.5FM, Dyllan Caterbury..

    I am enjoying a live set, and not a pre-recorded set. Great job so far DC !!!!!!

    Dear Bush Radio

    This is a message for Nigel Vermaas. I always listen to his Saturday evening jazz programme when I find myself in Cape Town. It educates while allowing one to relax! His recent shows about profiles of little known musicians were very interesting. Will it be possible to expand this to other artists such as Bud Powell, Eric Dolphy, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane (my favourite) and Charles Mingus?

    Thanks for the wonderful tribute to Bra Wynston Ngozi!


    • bushradio Says:

      Dear Peter,

      thank you very much for your comment. We have forwarded it to Nigel.

      Keep listening.

    I recently completed a basic Radio presenting course. I now wish to acquire practical presenting skills. How can you assist me?

        Hi Sharon I would love to be in that broadcasting course how can I apply and what do I need in order to be able to attend it…

  6. Elora Says:

    Hi! I am a senior at the University of Minnesota studying Community Organizing, Political Science and Global Studies. I absolutely love Bush Radio’s mission and more importantly am in awe of the work you all are doing with exposing youth to critically analyzing and shaping media while building leadership through programs in Cape Town communities. I will be studying at the University of Cape Town and I am looking for an internship, and it would be fantastic if I could learn and work with Bush Radio (especially in the Human Potential Development sector). Who could I contact regarding this opportunity and how can I learn more information about interning at Bush Radio?
    Thank you all for your work and your challenge to mainstream media!


    Hi there

  9. Wendy Says:


    I dropped off a CD with the station, about two weeks ago. Please advise what now?

  10. Claude Prince Says:

    I am currently in the process of completing work on my album.

    Once all tracks have undergone final mastering I would like to submit it for your consideration.

    What would be the process I would need to undertake?

    Which audio formats should the tracks be encoded to?
    Compressed(128/190/320kbps mp3/WMA/WAV) or CD Audio?

    Also, I have three tracks ready for the final album that I provide as free downloads via my label website – i.e online singles.

    Would it be possible to forward those as a “taste-test” so that you may decide if my product fits in your market area.

    Your help is greatly appreciated

    • bushradio Says:

      Thanks for the comment.

      You can submit tracks in most formats – mp3 would probably be easiest as we do play tracks as low as 128kbps. submit via and make it attention Music Library or you could post or drop it off at the station during office hours (09h00 – 16h00).


  11. Khanya Says:


    How do I get an event aired on your radio station?

    Good day

    I have been a follower of Bush Radio for many years and I love the on air talent and the quality programmes I hear.

    I was once a part of community radio sometime back in the Eastern Cape and I loved each and every minute of it. I am now working in a different field and I have an interest of associating myself with radio again as the love and passion for radio is still in me. I would love to pay Bushradio a visit just to experience the radio atmosphere I love. What are my chances of visiting the
    station and possibly perform some voluntary tasks? I am not looking for a salary as I am currently working but I would love to work as a volunteer for Bushradio in order to feed the radio hunger I am experiencing.

    Hi there bush radio.
    My collegue & I were known as “the Saints” at the station when we interned about 7 years ago, tho we have both moved out of radio now.
    Browsing the internet radios this morning and came across Bush Radio, so had to listen in of course 🙂 Fantastic quality listening here in the middle of the ocean.

I’ve sent an email to email address but not sure it was the correct one to send it to. I’d like to arrange an interview or four for later this year, and perhaps if I can ask if Bush Radio has any archive photos and such we can use… oh, and we have been in contact with Noam Chomsky (who visited Bush Radio in ’98) and he’s keen for an interview as well.
