Bush Radio is pleased to announce that we have two new members on our breakfast team – and they’re starting stiptelik at 6am on Monday, May 9.

Monde Kapa: familiar for his work on Bush Radio, a few stints at regional and national radio stations, television and commercials (see Monde’s CV). Monde returns to Cape Town airwaves and our online/mobile radio audience as the host of the energetic and dynamic Bush Radio breakfast show.

Monde will be giving back to the station which has introduced many of the radio and television personalities you now see in South Africa.

His role will be to ensure that the Breakfast Show continues to deliver the best and most real radio Cape Town has to offer.

Bhavna Singh: who may be familiar to most through her work on South Africa’s first 24-hour news channel, as well as her print and online work, will join Monde in the studio.

Bhavna describes herself as Durbanite-turned-Joburger finding her way in the Cape on her blog, and what better way for her to experience the Mother City than through the Mother of Community Radio in Africa.

The youngest member of the team is Dennis Kofi – affectionately known in the office as Dennis the Menace. Bush Radio is giving this young buck a taste of media and also readying the world for him.

Other additions to the Breakfast Team will be announced over the course of the month, so stay tuned to 89.5 FM or visit www.bushradio.co.za.

Be Connected 2 Jazz

29/04/2011

If you’re a MY KINDA JAZZ fan, the bad news is that Nigel Vermaas’s show ends on 30 April after 5 years of bringing you his personal selection from 8 to 10 on a Saturday night.

The good news is that he’s back on Tuesday 3 May with CONNECTED 2 JAZZ.  The time stays the same, 8 – 10 p.m..

“The airwaves are a bit overloaded with jazz on Saturday nights”, says Nigel, “with very little through the week. CONNECTED 2 JAZZ will change that.  As the name implies, it’s a show that makes connections: connections with jazz itself,  connections with those who play jazz, connections with music that has some relation to jazz but is not necessarily what the purists would classify as jazz, and many other connections, from comparing genres to finding surprising similarities.”

Nigel has been presenting jazz and other music shows on radio for over 30 years and he’s interviewed many prominent jazz musicians, including Abdullah Ibrahim, Cassandra Wilson, Abbey Lincoln, Kesivan Naidoo, Hotep Idris Galeta, Jason Moran, George Duke, Johnny Fourie, Archie Shepp, Courtney Pine, Charles Lloyd and Toots Thielemans. He’s made countless documentaries on jazz, focusing on the Cape Town International Jazz Festival over last 12 years. He’s also compiled in-depth tributes to a number of our late jazz musicians, including Robbie Jansen and Alex van Heerden.

Be CONNECTED 2 JAZZ on Tuesday nights on Bush Radio 89.5 from 3 May from 8 p.m. till 10 p.m.
