From the archive: Noam Chomsky

28/07/2010

Time for something old on the Bush Radio blog, we’ve decided to dig through the mountain of photographs in the office and start posting them on the blog.

In 1998 we had the privilege of hosting acclaimed American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, political activist and author; Noam Chomsky at the station.

With Noam Chomsky is our former MD, Zane Ibrahim and the late R.O. Dudley. See if you can spot a very young Victor J, Brenda Leonard, Bassie Montewa, Damian Zane and Jan Weintrob

A few weeks after the visit he sent us an e-mail stating: 

“It was one of the high points of a very exciting and instructive visit, and I was really pleased to have the opportunity to be with you for a few hours.

I would also like to tell you how impressed I was with what I saw and heard at Bush Radio. I have had quite a lot of contact with popular media in the United States, and often elsewhere, and have rarely come across achievements comparable to yours. There is no doubt in my mind that community radio is, in general, one of the most important ways to develop a basis for meaningful functioning democracy. In my own (fairly extensive) experience, I have found abundant evidence to support this conclusion.“

*You can catch some of the talks by Noam Chomsky during the Political Hour slots on Bush Radio which airs every Monday and Friday at 21h00*
