Engaging talk and critical thinking (2 new programmes)

05/10/2021
Bush Radio Managing Director, Brenda Leonard giving Cornerstone Institute CEO, Noel Daniels some in studio tips and tricks while Mkhuseli Veto looks on

Bush Radio 89.5FM in partnership with the Cornerstone Institute will this week (Thursday, 7 October 2021 from 7pm)  launch two new programmes.

The first is the Cornerstone Critical Dialogues and the second is Community Champions.

Cornerstone Critical Dialogues which starts at 7pm, will feature some of South Africa’s most influential thinkers, activists, performing artists and business people to debate the topics that matter most for society. Journalist Ryan Fortune will lead this collaborative project – a live radio show and podcast on Bush Radio and other platforms – is a direct offshoot (and next logical evolution) of the popular Cornerstone Critical Dialogues series.

Community Champions at 9pm  is where Noel Daniels, CEO of the Cornerstone Institute, will be chatting with one community champion, social or cultural activist, who may not always get the attention they deserve in the mainstream media. Noel will take us on a journey, exploring the world of leaders of non-profit organisations, social entrepreneurs, ground breakers and doers who are making a difference in their communities. They all have one thing in common – they are the people who play it forward.

Vaxx On, Vaxx off

17/09/2021

Renato, Bush Radio’s 22-year-old logistics and programming intern, took the big step this week and went for the first part of his Covid-19 vaccination.

He said he was very nervous and hates needles, but like so many people in our worldwide community he has been directly affected by the pandemic with the loss of family members.

“My experience on getting the vaccine, it was quick and fast, I looked away for a second and it was over. It literally felt like a prick. With my side effects, I just felt a little bit of a headache, a little bit of chills. My arm was just a little bit sore for about two days and on the second day my headache and chills went away and on the third day I was up, back and running,” said Renato. 

Along with several volunteers, staff and interns he went to the CTICC vaccination site to get his jab on Monday morning. 

He decided to get the jab after studying the facts available and knowing that he is helping to safeguard his family and colleagues at the station, and the communities Bush Radio serve when going out on projects like outside broadcasts and events. 

Renato also has on-air duties, so if you would like to ask him or find out about his Covid-19 vaccination experience tune in on Monday, September 20, 2021, from 2pm till 4pm on Backchat when you can message or call him.

There Are No Words…

03/06/2021

We are living in a time of anxiety, uncertainty, loss, grief and  isolation.

In 1969 Elisabeth Kübler-Ross defined the five stages of grief as DENIAL, ANGER, BARGAINING, DEPRESSION and ACCEPTANCE.

These stages are experienced by those who have lost a loved one, but can also be caused by loss of work, rejection, the end of a relationship, the onset of an illness and more.

Nigel Vermaas (yes, the very same host of Connected 2 Jazz and the Arts Update, broadcaster, actor, mentor to Bush Radio trainees etc etc etc) presents THERE ARE NO WORDS.

Nigel created the audio dramas as part of the (Un)Infecting the City Public Arts Festival 2021 in collaboration with Bush Radio – the Mother of Community Radio in Africa.

There Are No Words consists of five short (very short!) audio dramas which portray the five stages with minimal dialogue and feature the talents of actors Royston Stoffels, Bianca Flanders and Chris Gxalaba.

Says Nigel: “It’s really an experiment. I look forward to listeners’ response. If they wish to hear an episode again, they can go to www.infectingthecity.co.za and find it there.”

There Are No Words will be broadcast on Bush Radio 89.5FM from Monday to Friday from the 7th June at 1:10pm.

Being Human

02/06/2021

Let me tell you about the singer. The singer is dangerous when she lies. She is dangerous when she tells the truth. She causes revolutions. She starts something in your mind, a completion of endings. The singer is in bondage unless she sings. Songs are stories, a documentation of souls and spirits, a telling of moments in history and time. Songs memoralise experiences and emotions. Songs also have the ability to heal, to teach, to moralise and corrupt. Songs can make you understand the moments and give you a prophetic (if you may) understanding of things to come.

Auriol Hays is a singer! Auriol Hays wants to be human; she needs to be Free!

She seeks to heal, prophesy, tell a story, seduce, lie, tell the truth and draw you in, into magic, her magic, a WOMAN magic. Auriol Hays takes us on a journey, a journey of healing and freedom. A journey on BEING HUMAN. A journey of The Divine Feminine being, a frequency that all should share. A journey through the voices of iconic women who have used their voices to make impact and effect meaningful change within their respective societies.

Ms Hays has been nominated for both the SAMA and Mbokodo jazz, and also opened for triple award-winning musician and instrumentalist Ben Harper in 2019, is performing with her talented band The Saints (Rodney Buys on Piano, Shaun Fracke on Guitar, Liam Webb on Drums and Andre Webb plays the Bass and directs the Band). They will be at her side once again, as she shares the music of women who inspired not only her body of work but the world at large. Musicians like Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, Miriam Makeba, Shirley Bassey and others. Infused with their music are compositions of her own.

Venue: Gallery 44 and Theater (44, Long Street Cape Town)

Date: Friday 4th of June and Saturday 5th of June

Time: 6.30pm for 7pm

Door: R180

Grow with #BushRadio – Community Farmer’s Radio Show

02/05/2021

A new radio production – COMMUNITY FARMER’S RADIO SHOW – is in development. This radio show is designed to encourage, motivate, support the growth of self-sustainable urban communities. This production will primarily focus on all aspects of community farming and will include conversations on the research and development of sustainable alternative energy sources.

COMMUNITY FARMERS RADIO SHOW will join two recently launched radio productions.

The SPEAK UP TALK SHOW is a current affairs production as a platform for ‘ordinary’ people to engage on pertinent social issues like Gender Based Violence (GBV), Racism, Poverty, Homelessness, Human Rights etc. – not to apportion blame but to engage in experiences of behavioural change. The SpeakUp on Bush facilitates uncomfortable conversations that takes centre stage in driving the need for behavioural change and healing in society

RUNNING TRACK is a magazine show that’s all about running – road, trail, cross country, track & field, leisure, for fun, wellness including walking as a sport and leisure. and much more – exclusively dedicated to news and interest w.r.t all forms of running and walking.

All productions are developed and produced by people with relatively no broadcasting experience under the guidance of Bush Radio. Speak Up have done three productions to date and Running Track, one. Volunteers of both production crews responded to an Expression of Interest invitation published on FB

The productions are three-hour live shows broadcasted across the the Bush Radio 89.FM footprint in the Western Cape and globally via live audio-streaming, FB Live, other media networks including a Podcast postal.

All productions are individually broadcasted live on a selected Wednesday of each month from 7pm to 10pm. The first broadcast of COMMUNITY FARMER’S RADIO SHOW is provisionally scheduled for Wednesday 19 May.

Express your interest to join the COMMUNITY FARMER’S RADIO SHOW production crew or any other production as a presenter, content developer, social media integrator, audio engineering and studio production, by emailing your details to trevord0606@gmail.com with a short bio/expression of interests as to why you volunteering. All production and training sessions are online.

The only physical meet is on the evening of a broadcast live show. All COVID Safety protocols are applicable.

Experience is NOT a requirement. Passion and the willingness to be an agent for social change, is essential and a requirement. Radio production is fun!

Good News This Week

23/02/2021

One of the many sayings at Bush Radio is “don’t curse the darkness, light a candle” and in these times it seems particularly hard. When we came across an illustrator called Amii James from the UK we reached out and asked if we could share some of the work on our blog.

Amii is doing a series of work called “Good News This Week” – check out some of them out below or visit the facebook page.
