All hands on the decks

14/09/2022

This week Bush Radio is busier than usual. We started with a major service of our studios, starting with every piece of equipment getting taken out, dismantled, cleaned and repaired if necessary.

What this means is that we are broadcasting from our production studio.

The servicing team is under the guidance of Ebrahim Sampson from AB Technical Solution.

We guess you can call this the start of our “spring-cleaning”.
