Cape Town has lost another jazz legend. Ronnie Green passed away on the 15th April 2018.

Ronnie was a former volunteer presenter on Bush Radio and was a giant in the Cape Town jazz music scene as the host of Ronnie Green’s Jazz Scene which he ran from his home. It was a place where many received an education and appreciation for the music he loved.

Mr Green, as he was affectionately called at Bush Radio was born on the 16th March 1939 and was introduced to the station by our former MD, Zane Ibrahim.

Our condolences to all who knew Mr Green, especially his family and friends. Ronnie, you made the world a better place.
