Music and laughs



While it seemed like the whole of South Africa was putting the final preparations together for the FIFA Soccer World Cup final – and a few warned us about the impact of hosting this eventBush Radio was organising an evening of music and comedy for the Bush Radio / Vodacom Community Funny Festival.

Everyone was captivated by the performances

After weeks of careful planning, sound checks, rehearsals and running around it all came together on the evening of July 9 at the Joseph Stone Auditorium in Athlone.

Dyllan and Victor hosted the first part of the evening

Excited listeners and supporters arrived early to wait for the doors to open at 5pm.

Denisia kept things moving backstage

Shiraaz Ismail was tasked to head the Bush Radio team which included Denisia Adams, Victor Jay, Sive Msolo, Dyllan Canterbury, Brenda Leonard, Elroy Williams, Belinda Sepkit, Sharon Salies and Adrian Louw.

Great job guys!

Saying hello and goodbye (+ job ad)


Belinda getting down to business

Since 1998, whenever you called Bush Radio during the day you would hear “Good afternoon Bush 89.5. How can I help you?”. (CLICK TO LISTEN)

This greeting has become Belinda Sepkit’s signature whenever you call the Mother of Community radio in Africa.

You have until the end of July to hear that famous greeting as Belinda will be leaving the station to embark on a new journey in her career.

Bush Radio management has always received good feedback for Belinda’s pleasant and professional telephone manner.

Belinda is normally very shy, so we are grabbing this opportunity to showcase her as she has been a valuable asset to the station; whether it was taking calling and making sure we return them or making sure that all incoming mail is dealt with.

If you feel that you could fill Belinda’s shoes or know anyone who could, we are now advertising for the position of frontline receptionist (see ad below).

Congratulations to Belinda and we wish her well in her future endeavours.

Remember if you would like to hear that greeting, call 021 448 5450 and order your tickets for the Vodacom Community Comedy Festival from Belinda now.
